|I think I can get away from this guy over here...|
|Damn. Okay maybe over here...|
|That's it, you're fucking done for.|
Today's Animal of the Day is quite special. Why is it special? Because this little creature was sent to me by the one and only Mr. Rorschach of Rorschach Redemption.
I've personally never seen a mantis in real life, which is, to me, unfortunate. I've always found these creatures very interesting. As for the mantis in these pictures, that little guy is the reason why Rorschach does what he does. Shortly after taking these photos the mantis leaped on Rorschach and ripped his throat open. He then fell backwards on a rock, knocking himself unconscious. When Rorschach awoke he was in the hospital with bandages covering his throat and head. The injuries sustained in the mantis attack have since caused him to become obsessed with inkblots (I don't know why, maybe some kid in the next bed over was playing with a Spin Art), which is good for us because who doesn't have fun seeing what our crazy minds can come up with and then sharing it with others to be ridiculed because we see Pedo Bears and dildos and Ninja Turtles and ovaries. The other good thing to come out of this attack is the leftovers of what most would think was a kill shot from the mantis' attack. Rorschach's vocal chords healed in such a way that it left him with a very deep, but gentle, voice that would soothe even the craziest mantis. Don't believe me? Just check out his latest video, or any of them for that matter. Be prepared to be lulled into a nice relaxing sleep.
Thank you for the pictures, Rorschach.
