A Proposal

The Meet in Helen, featuring a special guest appearance by Zeejus, is coming up in a couple of months, and the Son of Eli admonishes us to plan ahead for The Eclipse of 2017. Planning ahead is what allows for so many of us to hook up...

Well, I'm here to propose a possible meet. Judging by some facial expressions and "unfavorable" reactions, it may not fly, but you never know unless you ask, right? After all, I made my suggestion to three folks, and, while only one seemed to like it, three people does not a blogosphere make.

I know of a group of friends that are planning on hooking up in Central America. This is a good batch of folks, and there are some bloggers in their midst... and they are friends of mine. So I'm hoping that they don't take this proposal in the wrong way... Gott knows I don't wish for personal harm. Their's or mine.

I've read several accounts of bot fly infestations in the past couple of weeks, and Central America seems to be Capital of Human Bot Flies. So here's my proposition: about six to eight weeks after these fine folks return from their trip, we all hook up for a Bot Meet. Or rather, a Bot Meat(thanks, Ktreva)... the gathering of the three B's: Booze, Bloggers, and Bot Flies! We'll all get schnockered and pull bot fly larvae from their hosts! Hell, if someone comes up with a decent Bot Fly recipe, appetizers will be covered...

What say you?

Disgusting. The thought of Bot Flies is disgusting, the videos, the pulling from flesh . . . Ok, I'm psyched, where do I sign up?

Wait, I should clarify, I simply would like to watch . . . not participate - Yuck!

I've got tweezers and a jar of petroleum jelly ready to pull the bot flies!

I've had some experience with castration. Bot flies? Not so much. But I'm willing to learn a new skill. Sign me up!

Pick Bot Flies out of each other's bodies??? No effing way, dude. I love youse guys, but not enough to do that. I'd sooner us burn off each other's genital warts.

So you've had enough of pulling your own worm and now you wanna tug on other peoples'? Somehow methinks you is gonna loooove California, dude.

As for me, I am going to mainline deet if I have to. Bot flies are GROSS... Blog meet sounds fun though!
