    Here's where I have to wonder whether or not I should post my typical response.

    Heh.

    Seriously, though, doesn't this seem like a risky gambit? Even if the younger male cuttles are swifter than their elder competitors, wouldn't some of them be, ah, violated by the males they've duped?

    :goofysca:

    I doubt that the eminent Herr Doktor would be jealous, Kat...but then again, he does listen to NEIL DIAMOND !!!! :shock:

    Well, 'sneaking' behavior (smaller males being tricksy rather than taking on large competitors head-to-head) is a pretty well-documented reproductive strategy; I did a study on it once in wetas (really big, ugly bugs). Though they hadn't evolved into the cross-dressing phase yet... does seem like it would carry certain, er, risks. :roll:

    But you shouldn't smack them with their own stolen articles, though. That's just a little bit too tacky.

    :lol: Executive tranvestite cuttlefish, oh boy, on the subject of the subjectless, you can pick up a good deal on the Dress to Kill DVD at Virgin Records. Strangley, I find executive transvestite cuttlefish easier to swallow than action transvestive cuttlefish. As for love newf's pic, well... it reminds me of when I was seven and my mom and sister kept on getting "ideas" :bonk: I wonder if it had anything to do with triggering my borderline insanity.

    And they all akwardly backed away, leaving the thread to die and decay...

    Pretty soon, the larger males will try to mate with every single femaling looking cuttle to be on the safe side, but that evoution, we'll see that in the next decade I fink.

    All of the Republican cuttlefish are going to be up in arms over this.
