Morning Musca Domestica!

You know the feeling.

You’re at the kitchen table.

Excited to chow down on your no-longer-$5-footlong.

You’ve got all the fixings:

  • Bread - hearty multigrain
  • Meat - Italian B.M.T.
  • Cheese - Provoloneee
  • Vegetables - Lettuce, onion, tomato baby
  • Sauce: Sweet onion teriyaki. Light.



You bring that sexy sammy right to your lips and you see it:

Ya, that poop eater wants a PIECE!

And it’s rubbing its little hands together like a greedy gobblin!

So wtf are flies actually doing when they land on your food?

You’re gonna want to put that sandwich down…

When a fly lands on your food, it immediately has a problem:

Flies can’t eat solid things.

Solids don’t fit up its little elephant trunk.

So instead, they start regurgitating saliva all over your food:

The saliva liquifies your food so they can drink it.

It’s basically…fly vomit.

But don’t worry!

Flies like to eat other things beside your food!

They love rotting meat:

They love garbage:

They love feces…

…Oh wait…


You’re eating fly vomit with a side of rotting meat, garbage, and poop.

Stay Cute,
