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. And more alert!

  2. I know the feeling!

  3. Thanks for visiting! I usually don’t get political, but couldn’t resist!

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

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

  6. Me too! πŸ˜‰

  7. I’ll say.

  8. Sorry it took so long to respond to your enthusiastic endorsement! I go on blogging fits and spurts. I’ll try not to disappoint you… πŸ˜‰

  9. 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™‚

  10. Unfortunately. 😱

  11. I’ve tried. I’ve shunned the political news, but (as you can see) he keeps popping up in every other part of the culture. He would disappear if people stopped paying attention to him. It would be like throwing water on the Wicked Witch of the West. But that’s never going to happen, right?

  12. You are too kind!

  13. I think you’re right!

  14. The moth flaps, but not his mouth. I really like the moth!

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. Reblogged this on The Owl Lady.

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

  19. Agreed, Col. πŸ™‚

  20. Very valid questions indeed. πŸ˜€

  21. 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!

  22. Agreed.

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

  24. Such a timely find!

  25. I try to keep it light around here! πŸ˜‰

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

  27. Hmmm. DIdn’t think of that. Guess I don’t know how those bug lovers are. And I’m oddly fine with that. πŸ˜‰

  28. I just hope it’s not written in Latin. You know how those bug-lovers are.

  29. I’ll let you know when I get my first Zootopia journal. I hope it has puzzles and stuff in it! πŸ˜‰

  30. 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).

  31. Yeah, me and how many million Americans who are appalled, embarrassed, and terrified that he and his questionable Cabinet picks now represents us?

  32. I’m not a Twit, so no Twitter account. But anyone who has one is free to to what tweeters do! πŸ˜‰

  33. Me, too. But reality is reality and we have to get through this somehow, right? Laughter helps. It doesn’t solve a thing, but it helps me make it through the day.

  34. I agree! That’s why I only watch comedy news!

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

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

  37. 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.

  38. No doubt we both will be. For the foreseeable future beware of people pretending not to look at you but who have American accents.

  39. But makes you think about what? πŸ˜‰

  40. I’m smiling. At your comment. Do you think that after Friday’s Inauguration, I’ll be on some kind of list (and I don’t mean an Entomology Watch List)? πŸ˜‰

  41. 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.

  42. Tough one. Makes you think

Silence can be just what the doctor ordered. You know I'm a doctor, right?
