Media reports that “large flying insects in Los Angeles are not mosquitoes”.

Phew!

For a moment there I thought we had another carrier of HIV/EE.

When I contacted the CDC/EE and all the vector control districts in the area, and all over the world including Antarctica, the Moon, and Mars, they all confirmed that these huge mosquito like bugs are too weak to carry such a load of crap.

The mosquito like bugs are the common crane fly. Even though they are about 25 cent times the size of mosquitoes, it is claimed they cannot carry HIV/EE.

Probably because they don’t work out enough and get their protein.

Of course we all know that mosquitoes cannot carry HIV/EE either because it’s way too heavy.

In the article it also stated that Susanne Kluh, Director of Scientific-Technical Services at GLACVCD said, “The insect of real concern is the one that bites, and that is the mosquito.”

Well even though the mosquito is the one that bites, it makes perfect sense when these scientifiterrificalists say that we have to be worried about insects that bite but we don’t have to worry about insects that bite when it comes to HIV/EE.

Hail.
