These little buggers will go into you, and grow, then turn into flies, and fly out of you. Cool, huh?

I'M THE FIRST POSTER IN THIS FORUM!

Wow…my thoughts are mixed between “awesome” to “what the HECK?!?” to “dude…I wonder if I have one…”

Agh, I saw a thing about botflies on Animal Planet's The Most Extreme. It's fascinating/disgusting. On the show, the doctor put some kind of oil on the woman's head (she had a botfly bump thing on her scalp) and then they showed them extracting these HUGE maggots with tweezers. Well, huge in relation to what I thought they would be…

Ew. D:

I think that particular episode was one of the most disgusting ever. It was all about “body-snatchers” of the animal world (the botfly was on there because of it laying its eggs on mosquitos or whatever).

BUT on the bright side, I don't think these botfly bump things are all that common. I've never even heard of them til I saw that show. Plus it's pretty easy to find and get rid of them, judging from the woman on TV.

Lumi: That's the third video I put up.

Luigi: It's supposed to be like that. Also, you shouldn't have one, unless you've been bit by a mis… mous… mousquito? Hey, that's a hard word to spell. In Central America.

Chelano: Like I told Luigi, it's supposed to be that way.

First off: Wow. That's one hell of a way to reproduce.

Second: Where in America is this happening, so that I know never to go there? EVER.

At the end of the first video, it has a website. Go there, and you'll learn all about bot flies, and then some. And then some more.

I've heard of those bastards.

It happens in Africa and South America, and I know I will puke my own body weight if I ever have one.

Long live the WTH forum!

I agree.

And I agree with you.

And thus was said by the first poster of the forum, and one of the funnier people of Drunk Duck. If we could get the moderator-to-be/ top contributor-to-be, Subcultered, and the-thinker-upper-of-this-forum, Chelano to both agree, it would be law.
