Agh!!!! Zombies!!!

Well, humans making cockroaches into zombies is old news. Some people feel this is unnatural and icky. Icky is a subjective quality but the 'unnatural' charge is a little weaker after one reads Carl Zimmer's Loom post entitled The Wisdom of Parasites. A wasp performing brain surgery on a cockroach. As Tara Smith at Aetiology says: "Absolutely frickin' amazing."

The possible uses of this wasp as an analogy for just about every aspect of human culture are irresistible and I expect to see it mentioned on just about every political comedy routine in the known universe in short order.
