    Oh Hai!

    dieAntagonista

    My favourite insect. Next to grasshoppers.

    lolcat

    I’m a fucking mantis!

    nyoki

    The kung fu is very strong w/ this one.

    Looks more like the mantis is saying:

    “I’M SUPER, THANKS FOR ASKING” hahaha

    Sticky

    @lolcat:
    FUCK YOU, I’M A MANTIS

    joodles

    “Fuck you, I’m a mantis.”

    Alternatively,

    “Ok, from the top, once more with feeling.”

    Sticky

    @joodles:
    Beat you to the first one Joodles. 😀

    This looks more like a “Ta-da!” pose to me.

    “Y. M. C. A.”

    joodles

    @Sticky: No wai, he’s definitely saying it in lower case. He’s a little more sophisticated than your average anteater.

    Sticky

    @joodles:
    …He’s a cannibalistic thing that goes crunchy-crunchy under my shoe sole. How sophisticated can be be?

    iamevilhomer

    Jazz Hands!!!

    joodles

    @Sticky: He’s conducting a mo-fo’ing ORCHESTRA. He’s going SYMPHONIC on our asses and he’s a MANTIS. That’s pretty damn sophisticated.

    @killing_loneliness_58: It’s important in life to take time to stop and smell the mantises.

    @Sticky:
    Don’t step on him! He eats a bunch of the other stuff that bothers you!

    Sticky

    @RSIxidor:
    I’LL DO WHAT I WANT YOU GODDAMN HIPPIE.

    …And no, I don’t usually crush bugs. Except spiders. *shudder*

    Sticky

    @Sticky:
    Well, technically a spider is an arachnid, but whatever.

    Elepski

    Ya think he knows anteater?

    Xenon2434

    I have never seen one with that peacock-like thing coming up out of its ass.

    I would assume its similar to the peacock’s use though-attracting mates and asserting dominance. Is this correct?

    joodles

    @Xenon2434: You said, in a perfectly innocent comment, coming, ass, mates, dominance, and cock – twice. FYI.

    Praying mantis sez, “It’s on now, motherfucker!”

    It’s more a defence mechanism to avoid being eaten, mostly by birds. Some of them strike this pose if you walk to close to them and they think you might harm them. They eat a lot of other pest insects so they are very good to have around.

    Give a small grasshopper to one. Its kinda cool to watch, but I’m kinda fucked in the head.

    dieAntagonista

    @AppleSauce: Nice. I know. And it’s fine, I’m fucked in the head also.

    VanZant

    It’s gooooooooood!!!!! ……the only insect that can turn it’s head (I think).

    TSU_Beast

    this is probably what the male mantis sees right before his maniac wife eats him…
