I haven't clicked the link, but I'm really hoping this is about the zombie ants that the kids at UT were creating a few years ago.

Hahaha...NO. The correct pronunciation of "aunt" is "ahnt", so that joke does not work. But nice try.

I really do/did (she realized how dumb it looked) have an aunt that had a a ton of beanie babies in the back ledge of her car.

They prefer to be called, "Selectively Perceptive Ants."

their spread can be limited if people are careful not to transport them inadvertently

Good luck with that. You're counting on large numbers of people to a) give a damn, b) not be jokers and do it intentionally, c) pay attention enough to even know, d) do all that in a concerted way. Good luck herding those cats.

But for the rest of us who pronounce "aunt" as "ant", it's funny.

I had gone to the beach in Port Aransas, TX for a friend's wedding and had left my car parked at the hotel.
It was invaded by crazy ants. They got in through the wheel well after climbing up the front tire.
Took me 4-6 weeks to kill them all off.

No. They don't bite, I promise.

Holy CRAP.  A Wodehouse novel I didn't know about.  I've read dozens, most of them so many times I know them by heart.

Yankees pronounce it "ahnt". Normal folks pronounce it as "ant"
 
2013-05-17 01:51:28 PM  
Heh. The only ants crazier than fire ants are south american army ants, because fark you that's why!

(lives in florida. is entirely too familiar with fire ants. i say nuke them from orbit, just to be sure)
 
2013-05-17 01:52:04 PM  
The ants are not attracted to ordinary ant baits, are not controlled by over-the-counter pesticides, and are harder to fully exterminate because their colonies have multiple queens.

They appear to be too small to bite people or sting them. However, they also apparently will invade the shiat out of your house, eat your electrical wiring, and swarm your kitchens and bathrooms to the point that you have sweep them up and dump them out with dustpans.

So, it's a choice between biting, stinging bastard ants that are relatively content to hang out in their "territory", or friendly non-biting ants that form a living, moving carpet in your house and sprinkle themselves in your food.

That's crazy! But not as crazy as the crazy deals we're offering at Crazy Eddie's Wheel Well Wholesalers! Right off Route 113!

Ants are bugs... I hate bugs! Bugs drive me crazy... Crazy? I was crazy once. They locked me in a room with padded walls. I died there, and they buried me in the ground, with bugs. Bugs? I hate bugs!
