Let me get this straight...

Florida has done everything they can to spread the virus:

- Cruise ships!
- Spring break parties
- Open beaches
- Open theme parks
- Etc., etc.

Now they plan to release 750,000,000 mosquitoes into the face of two hurricanes and blow blood-sucking bugs all over North America!!! Squitonado??

Sure they say the little buggers are "safe" and won't spread disease.

Oh well, got to go now and get ready to teach school that opens on Monday (the day the hurricane arrives)!!

5. Gently, gently. Male mosquitoes don't suck blood.

I'm not a big fan of the plan myself. These mosquitoes are, allegedly, genetically programmed to kill female mosquitoes, which are the blood-suckers and disease-spreaders. This woefully uneducated layman can only shake his head and say, "Neat trick, that."

8. What would happen if all the mosquitoes died?

-

Personally, I donít like the little buggers. Mostly itís because I donít know what the hell theyíre good for?

If they disappeared, would it change anything?

Could we survive without them?

Would all life on the planet disappear right along with them?

Letís take a chance and do it anyway.

Iíll even help.

One dollar to anyone who can bring me a million dead mosquitoes.

Bring a sleeping bag, because Iím going to have to count them first.
