Saturday Matinee – Hercules Beetle Pupa, The Husbands of Target, Chapelle on Smollett & The Pips

Just when we thought we’d seen it all, the internet dishes up a fat, red alien baby that looks like it’s been ripped from the scorching sand dunes of Venus (we wish).

In reality, it’s just a Hercules beetle in its pupa form, enshrined in a chrysalis as it prepares to take on its adult form. But let’s not talk it down too much – this writhing cocoon is about to become one of the largest insects on Earth.

More about that beastie here.

I heard this on The Tim Conway Jr. Show KFIAM 640. The video is even better.

Heh. “Jucet Smolliet.” Dave Chappelle is one funny guy.

In 1977, _____ & The Pips appeared on The Richard Pryor Show sans Gladys Knight. IIRC, she had laryngitis that night.

Have a great Presidents’ Day weekend, folks, and we’ll do some stuff tomorrow.
