Nothing to see here folks, just another nightmare-inducing species of bug! This is the scorpionfly. You can just go ahead and file it under “Insects I do NOT want to f*** with” and “Oh heeeeell naw!” Despite its appearance, that scary tail part isn’t actually a stinger. It’s a wiener. You know, like a ding-dong or whatever. I… still haven’t decided on whether or not that makes it better or worse. Sure, on one hand, a stinger could be dangerous. But on the other hand? Well, on the other hand, right now I’m feeling pretty violated. I’ve been staring at this bug-dude’s peen for like five minutes now!
