Would a wingless fly be called a walk?
Hammerin on Anvil.

'59 Nuke The Screw-worm    Posted 08-13-2004 at 22:30:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
Male Screw-worms were irradiated and released throughout the southen states to save the livestock (primarly cattle)industry. Sucess was so great that the USA soon started releasing male Nuked Screw-worm flies into Mexico and South American countries.

As a result of the mutations, wingless flies had to chase livestock on foot. This was a salvation for the livestock industry here in the USA.

Very quickly the Lemmon-aid processors learned that fly wings added fiber, bulk and a "naturally" appearing pulp to their product.

So, they took over the "Nuke the Screw-worm" project so the could have an unlimited supply of fly wings for their processing plants.

Works pretty good too!
