Yellow-headed Moth With Tiny Genitalia Named After Donald Trump
"A yellow-headed moth with tiny genitalia now shares a name with the nation`s soon-to-be 45th President.
Scientists have named a new species of moth Neopalpa donaldtrumpi after President-elect Donald Trump - partially because the yellow, puffy scales on the critter`s head look like the Republican`s signature coiffed `do.
`The specific epithet is selected because of the resemblance of the scales on the frons (head) of the moth to Mr. Trump`s hairstyle,` taxonomist Vazrick Nazari wrote in a new paper."
New York Daily News
It makes perfect sense to name a moth after Donald Trump, moths are attracted to artificial lights, and we are all familiar with Trump`s attraction to klieg lights.
A moth that`s attracted to artificial lights, who has puffy yellow scales on his head that bear a remarkable resemblance to Trump`s hairdo, and has tiny genitalia -- even in comparison to other moths, how could scientists not name it after Trump?
Moths are considered major agricultural pests in many parts of the world, Donald Trump is considered a pest, not only in America, but throughout the world.
When a moth invades my home I kill it with a fly swatter with a flick of my wrist, would to God it were as easy to get rid of Donald J. Trump.
