But what about the maggots??


Who is this man and why does he have a waffle on his head?

You might not believe me if I told you. Hell, I'll tell you anyhow just because it gives me the giggles to think about it.

John Rolls, Director of Animal Welfare for the RSPCA, is now campaigning for the welfare of maggots, roaches and ants.

I kid you not. Scott has the scoop. Have you got a caption?

I have no idea on this one, can't even think of a semi-serious thing to say.

I feel sorry for him. Now people are going to think he's a crank just because he tied waffles to his head and let rats eat them. Haven't we all done that at some point? I say let he who has not tied waffles to his head and let rats eat them cast the first stone.

We have found what we were looking for.

"Look, I'm not a perfect person. I have my warts. I sometimes say things that get me in trouble. I wear suits that are cheap. I strap waffles and rats to my head with panties.
