MIRP: John Roblin/ Ants of Babylon

John Roblin

Babylon, NY, late October 2008, dusk.
Apparently disturbed by an incessant car alarm (the black SUV nearer to the boats) this rare species of giant ant (Formica whitmora) came ashore on the Babylon, NY docks and crushed the offending SUV. It proceeded to raid a nearby 7-Eleven, looting it of it's entire stock of Slurpee syrup and then disappeared back into the water.

MIRP: Matty Long/ King Frog

Matty Long

“King” Frog has supposedly ruled over the East Sussex countryside with an iron tongue since his status as a land-owner was recorded in the Doomsday Book of 1086. He imposed an instant fly tax upon his subjects, and to this day has never lost a siege. As for the crown, historians are baffled as to how he got it.

Matty has 1 post on his blog, and it's amazing! Check it out,
