Discovered via Futility Closet, the best non-entomological blog on the Interwebz:
A mosquito was heard to complain
That a chemist had poisoned his brain;
The cause of his sorrow
Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane is better known as DDT. But this mosquito can’t complain to me – I use cyanide in my kill jar!
(Incidentally, Wikipedia thinks cyanide is no longer used in kill jars due to “extreme toxicity”, but a few specimens of mine would beg to differ…)
