    BBC - Earth News - Ant mega-colony takes over world

    I think I like the quote at the very end of the article:
    Whereas earlier we have this:
    It won't be long before the wisen up to their sole remaining competitor on the planet, I'm sure, and move in to take care of the problem. ;)

    Oh well, at least we didn't help create a world-spanning colony of fire ants, or African army ants. That wouldn't have been funny at all.

    Once they kill all our leaders and destroy the framework of our society, they can farm us for food.

    ...if I add "and the political lethargists", will there be anybody left? :wink:

    I'm proud to announce that I have struck a successful bargain with our new ant overlords.

    I've sold Roman to them in exchange for granting me the title of Arch-Duke of Colony Cluster X4-J92-B.

    You may now refer to both Buzzfloyd and I as 'His Grace'

    Why thank you, Clay. Our ant overlords have been quite excited by some of the technology I have produced for them - the very idea of refrigerating food never entered their collective hive-mind!

    In show of thanks, they have given me near-limitless resources as part of my new job - Chief Harvesting Supervisor.

    You will also be pleased to know that, for ants, 'Arch-Duke' merely means 'meat-farmer'. I expect you to provide a rich yearly yield from Colony Cluster X4-J92-B, Arch-Duke.

    The Ant Collective has no desire to be at war with Ba. I have been sent to inform Ba that they desire trade - they possess unparalleled building capabilities, and are willing to provide Ba with his own subterranean domain (accessories such as lava pits not included).

    In exchange they have ask for an end to hostilities, as well as and an updated edition of "To Serve Man".
  12. Ba Lord of the Pies

    Ba will agree to cease hostilities and supply the ants with pie in exchange for Roman and improvements to his Lair, as outlined in these blueprints.
  13. Roman_K New Member

    Having reviewed the blueprints, and sampled the pies, the Ant Collective agrees to Ba's terms.
  14. Ba Lord of the Pies

    Excellent. Now prepare Ba's footbath, slave!

    It was a brief respite, but it was good while it lasted...
