George, Dick and Donald - Slime Mould...

Discussion in 'Multinational HQ' started by Rocketeer, Apr 25, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Dubya and his vice, Cheney along with DS Donnie Rumsfeld have been called worse, but this could a be permanent thing.. Seems some scientists want to name some new species of slime mould beetles after the three ' Powerstars' of America..

    The International Zoological Commission isn't so sure its a good idea [don't wnat this to become the butt of jokes ] but..discussions are underway to designate: Agathidium bushi, Agathidium cheneyi and Agathidium rumsfeldi into the long line of bugs named after politicians.

    Nelson Mandele has a parasitic wasp named after him, former Canadian Prime minister Brian Mulroney has [ appropriately ] a dung fly named after him and even Gary Larson, the Farside Cartoonist has a bug - the owl louse with his moniker...

    Bet there could be fun in assigning appropriate insects and such to certain people..

    I'd be partial to having a bug named after me if it was one that favoured hanging about young blonde large breasted women...
