    Have you ever considered the powers that mght be harnessed from such a creature? The withering exoskeleton; the crunchy internal compositions.

    You could wear them one as a piece of jewelry!

    I was thinking more of the dance move where you lay on the ground and put your hands and feet in the air. Although that's not really as much of a "move" as a chance to take a rest.

    Maybe you should call that the "Dying bug" since they flail their legs all over the place. :p

    Okay.

    Well, I'm not sure about dead bugs, but I do know that there is quite a bit of insect extracts in many of the foods we eat. A common red dye put into many juices is actually beetle extract. I'm not sure how they remove it from the beetle, or why it makes such a good dye, but it's "all-natural".

    EDIT: Nevermind, I realize now this is another 'inside' type reference. Sorry for trying to actually strike up a real conversation in your thread.

    -- Err.. no, it's not. Though, there are some references to inside jokes and all.

    And do you know what beetle the red dye comes from...?

    Whatever, I wasn't being critical, just retracting my comments which had no bearing on anything else at all.

    Anyways, here's an article on the beetle extract. Well, it's actually beetle egg extract:

    Ever wonder how they make pink lemonade pink? Well, me neither -- until I learned that the answer is beetle eggs. Called alternately "cochineal extract" and "carmine," this substance is extracted from the crushed eggs of cochineal beetles -- tiny critters who hang out in cactuses in Central America, the Canary Islands and parts of the Southwest. Strolling through the aisles of two chain grocery stores, I learned that the following products contain extract of bug eggs: Fruitopia Berry Lemonade, Hi-C Pink Lemonade, Langers Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice, Ocean Spray Pink Grapefruit Juice (and all their Ruby Red combos), Smith's Pink Grapefruit Juice and Big Tex's entire line of "cocktail" juice blends. Snapple and Minute Maid use berry extracts to color their pink lemonade and pink grapefruit juice. None of the concentrated or powdered pink lemonade and grapefruit juices contained cochineal. Clamato contains no insect eggs, but it does contain monosodium glutamate and Red No. 40 -- along with clam juice -- so you probably shouldn't go drinking that stuff anyway.
