Writer's Workshop - Dude Looks Like A Lady




The Mama Kat assignment I chose this week was to write a haiku about what I saw out my window. The first thing I saw was a ladybug crawling across my window screen and I thought about how funny it is that male ladybugs are still called "ladies" (Do you think they get insulted?)Here's my haiku devoted the cross-dressers of the insect world.




Creeping ladybug
You're not a "lady" at all
Sex changes aren't cheap



Ok, I think this post proves I need more sleep. Off to bed soon to dream of ladybugs with mustaches. Can't wait to read what you all wrote tomorrow!

Too funny! Know what's even weirder? In Britain they're called 'ladybirds'... wrong in EVERY way!!

Tiffany said...

LOL...Man-bug. I may have to call them that from now on...but how can you tell a Manbug from a ladybug? Hmmm....

Erin, Nick and Merrick said...

Just the fact that the word "bug" and the word "sexy" are near eachother is funny : )
