This is the 62.4cm (24.5-inch) stick bug collected in the Guangxi Zhuang region of China by Insect Museum of West China researcher Zhao Li. That is a bigass bug. In my mind everything past its back legs is penis, making this insect more than half penis and four times the man I am. And that person's touching it!
"I was collecting insects on a 1,200-meter-tall mountain in Guangxi's Liuzhou City [when] a dark shadow appeared in the distance, which looked like a tree twig," Zhao told Xinhua. "As I went near, I was shocked to find the huge insect's legs were as long as its body."
The bug would later lay eggs in captivity and the smallest of the offspring was 26cm long.
Oh, so it's a lady stick bug. So I guess that isn't penis after all. Still, a man can dream. "Wait -- about a stick bug's penis? You're talking about dreaming about a stick bug's penis?" Hey listen pal, I don't tell you what to dream about.
