Subject:Re: World's Largest Bug From:David Jones/KSBEISD <David_Jones/KSBEISD -dot- KSBEISD -at- DATAHUB -dot- COM> Date:Fri, 17 May 1996 08:23:21 HST
[Jim Grey quoted me as saying:]
>I'm a confirmed CD addict, began with CD 1.0, but I've drawn the line at
>CD3. CD4 is the world's third largest bug (Xerox Ventura Publisher 3.0 for
>Windows 3.0 is the second largest).
[then went on to ask:]
Well, don't keep us in suspense, man! What's the world's largest bug?
[to which I answer:]
Here in Hawaii, we call it a B-52 cockroach. About the size of your hand, flies
with a heavy droning sound, and thinks it vastly entertaining to dive bomb
I shall refrain from other answers, not having any desire to clog this list
with unwanted flame wars. E-mail me privately if you think you know what I
consider the world's largest bug, or if you have other humorous thoughts along
those lines. (Today's Friday, and it's been a *long* week!)
