Fly poop. An education.
Conversation I just had with Mister:
Me (K): Do you think flies poop when they fly or land?
Mister (M): When they fly.
K: Why do you say that?
M: Because doing it when you fly is cooler.
K: Do you think flies think it is cooler?
K: If flies eat brown poop, what colour do you think fly poop is?
K: I think it is white like bird poop.
M: You think it has something to do with the flying?
K: No. I think that if they are eating poop then their body is cleaning it and it is coming out white. And, their diet might be similar to birds. Therefore, white poop.
M: Why are we talking about this?
K: I just wondered if I should kill a fly if it lands on me so it doesn’t poop or should I leave it and examine it a bit?
M: Are you purposefully trying to annoy me?
K: No, I was just really wondering about fly poop. I think I am going to look it up. Then I can tell the kids the answer so they don’t have to find out when they are 45.
M: You are so giving. (I think he might have been being sarcastic?)
K: That’s right! I am a very giving person.
Btw: Fly poop is in fact white and they poop when they land and sometimes they vomit too. You are welcome!
I found this fabulous proof video on YouTube. Someone captured a fly pooping and put it on YouTube! The internet rocks.
I might not kill flies who land in me after all so that I can watch the vomit poop spectacle on my arm and show off to the kids.
Mosquitos don’t count. Mosquitos must die.
