First they have to do a cameo in Sharks versus Tanks.

I'm convinced now that SyFy Channel peruses Fark and takes all our less ridiculous ideas for their next movie.

Not much chance of them buying my script for "Roachnado versus Coachella", is there?

KaiserRoll: One million cockroaches means you see about ten of them at any given time.


So cockroaches are ninjas?

I thought ninjas were mammals.

gravespinner: Traditional cockroach medicine. Now taking its place alongside Reiki, Homeopathy, and Acupuncture.


Actually, traditional Chinese medicine uses quite a lot of strange substances.  Quite a bit of it actually works; not necessarily as well as other medicines, but it can be effective.

Like many early medical systems, it uses quite a lot of rationalizations; i.e., this substance helps the liver work better, so it must be strong in the element of Wood (which treats the kidneys).  That may not be quite clear, but it goes something like this - instead of treating the affected organ directly (though that was done as well), you treat the organ before it in the Zang Fu cycle.

Phil Moskowitz: Cocknado? Sounds like gay gangbang porn.


Lol, I'm cracking up at 'Cocknado'

One of the unusual but accepted usages of "traditional" where it means "not".

Whar is Family Guy "Good, Good" roach?
 
2013-08-26 12:59:36 AM  
A million?  That's nothing.  A million is the average number on one floor of a NYC apartment building.

/or my sister's place.

MrHappyRotter: Oh, God.  I just looked it up.  It was 1,000,000 of those gigantic flying roaches.  You know the ones that will fly or walk right up to you with absolutely no fear.  The ones that don't scatter when you turn a light on.  The ones that climb on top of your face in the middle of the night and masturbate while you're sleeping.


...oh gods, I looked it up too.

They have a million farking palmetto bugs running amok in the fields of China.  (Yes, the particular species they're breeding are palmetto bugs, aka "American cockroaches", aka "Waterbugs" (which is a nice way of saying "IT'S A GODDAMN FARKING PALMETTO BUG BUT WE DON'T WANT TO ADMIT WE HAVE ROACHES").

They have A MILLION GODDAMN FARKING PALMETTO BUGS RUNNING AMOK.

WHY someone would have A MILLION GODDAMN FARKING PALMETTO BUGS I DON'T know.   (Even for the few legitimate reasons one would breed roaches for SCIENCE, they tend to use the big ol' Madagascar hissers...which are big enough that they don't quite register as OMFG FARKING GIANT ROACH.)

/why yes, I did have a house that would get the occasional infestation of "waterbugs"--which were actually goddamn farking palmetto bugs/American cockroaches, and the farkers would stink...folks would deny they were ROACHES but I knew better
//and now they're one of the few bugs I do have a legit COMPLEX about

i think "a cockroach farm in china" is just a mistranslation of "china."

Actually, I'm pretty sure that was a Gianna Michaels film.

Lee Jackson Beauregard: I'll just leave this here.


Well, that's the problem: you just leaving this around.  What this place needs is trash day.
