Which Came First: Our 45th President or a Very Quaffed Moth?

We may not know specific details about our new president’s policies (or finances), but much has been said about his hair.

He’s had his hair a long time, right? I mean, his hair has been styled the same way most of his life.

Hey, you have to work with what you've got...or not got, right?

You have to work with what you’ve got…or not got, right?

Make of that what you will.

But Dr. Vazrick Nazari, an evolutionary biologist and systematist (I think that’s a fictional job). Anyway, he noticed a new species of moth while poking around the basement attic archives of the Bohart Museum of Entomology atΒ the University of California-Davis. Remember, pot is now legal in California, so these types of news stories are likely to surface more frequently.

It's a big day in the research center! We need to have our wits about us. HAHAHAHAHA!

Yes. We’re dealing with something the likes of which no one has ever never seen before (sound familiar?).

The moth has “yellowish white scales” on the top of its head.

Because Dr. Nazari discovered it, he got to name it.

Introducing Neopalpa donaldtrumpi!

It’s gets better.

N. donaldtrumpi’s natural habitat is Southern California and…wait for it…Mexico! The poor bugger’s digs are fragile, though, (much like 24 carat gold is soft) and is threatened by people stomping by or “dune-buggy enthusiasts.”

According to the article in my local newspaper (which was from Sarah Larimer of the Washington Post), Trump’s transition team has not responded to Dr. Nazari’s emails about his discovery which was published in the journal ZooKeys, which kind of sounds like a children’s magazine, but it’s probably a fine, reputable publication.

Is it me, or do the have the same expression, too?

Hey, don’t blame/thank me! I just report this stuff.

Hey! What about me? I could use some discovery action! How about Aves Melanium

  1. LOVE. Like minded new blogger! -Marie aka http://www.goldisfromaliens.com

  2. Perfect name! I agree they look alike, although I prefer the moth. Looks kinder.

  3. I think the moth was first. The moth is also the most honest. Probably. But then I’ve not seen an interview with the moth yet. Do you suppose the moth would grant interviews? Most moths that I’ve been around are shy and don’t talk much.

  4. Now I’ve read a lot about our new, ur, president, but I need to come visit YOU to discover the real news. A moth, huh? Bet if a butterfly had been named after Mr. Prez, he would have shouted it to the world. Whatever, thanks for the laughs. xo

  5. Reblogged this on The Owl Lady.

  6. Such a refreshing approach to the inauguration, Lorna. Thanks for the laughs. You’re an absolute wizard…….now can you make him disappear? πŸ™‚

  7. Hilarious!!! He’s always been butt-ugly, hasn’t he? The hair is just part of his narcissistic personality disorder. In his mind, he thinks he looks great. But most importantly, he won’t listen to anyone’s advice. He just can’t. It’s weird how that disease works!

    • There is a self-administered psychopath test and Jon Ronson wrote a book about it. Trump scores the max on it. It’s true. If you gave him the test without telling him what it was and told him he scored THE BEST, he would tweet about how he scored higher than anyone in the world ever scored on this awesome test. Wouldn’t that be great? πŸ™‚

  8. Finally! someone that’s willing to tackle the REAL issues! (yes its worth 2 back-to-back !’s) So glad I found your blog

  9. LOL … now that’s funny … a good one for Inauguration Day.

  10. I just want to know how many marriages these moths have in a lifetime and if they have to import spouses from Europe who have posed nude in Lepidoptera Magazine. I’m sure the females are drawn to the light color of the substance covering their cranium (I hesitate to call it hair).

  11. Thanks for having fun with this. Humans can take life way too seriously sometimes. It’s nice to lighten up.

  12. I’m in mourning but a smile is always good during times of grief.

  13. Do your posts share with Twitter?! Just sayin’ This is funny and I’m sure our soon-to-be-president would laugh with you. The scientist has the same last name as one of my docs. Hmmm. Maybe he moonlights.

  14. Oh that he were a mere moth. So easy to squish and put out of their aimlessly flittering misery. The moth is actually far better looking than he is.

  15. Tough one. Makes you think

Now it's your turn! Don't be shy...I wasn't!
