In that amount of time, it's already laid its eggs, and soon his brain will be full of caterpillars.

Making him slightly more effective than most MLB umps, so he's got that going for him.

oh lovely. last night I was divebombed by a moth in the house and haven't seen it since, and I've had an off-and-on earache for years that is very much on today, so now I'm feeling extra squicky.

/normally I really like moths. just not in bodily orificies.

Does he still pull his strike zone out of his a**?

My grandpa used to do that trick with a quarter and my ear.

This happened to me one time while camping. I was taking a dump in the woods and while walking back to the tents I saw... something... flying straight for my face in the moonlight. I ducked down and to the left just in time to feel the thing fly directly into my ear canal. For the first few seconds I wasn't sure if it was in there, and then it started beating its wings very fast creating a buzzing deep within my ear. It was very unsettling. I got back to the tents and told my friends, and we tried to figure out how to get it out. First idea was to point a headlamp at my ear hoping to lure it out just using light. That didn't work, of course. We had no tweezers, either. But in the first aid kit we had some Q-Tips and bacitracin ointment. I coated the swab with the ointment  and slowly stuck it in my ear as far as I could go until I felt it hit the bug. I tried pulling the swab out slowly but it wasn't sticky enough to hang onto the bug for the whole trip out. I ended up using the same technique, but instead of trying to remove it fully, I got it about halfway and mashed it against the side of my ear canal and fished out all the parts. A week later, back in civilization, I went to a doc and he checked it: no sign of anything in the ear, so I got it all. But man, what an experience.

about 10 years ago i took my mom to a urgent care for a laceration on her finger. there was a guy there with a moth in his ear. they were saying that some type of moth will do this to lay eggs. when the guy came out, after about an hour trying to remove it, he said it was pretty painful. his had been in his ear over night so it kept going in deeper.
