Pop Culture Frenzy: Round 6

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.  Here we are in Round 6.  Now our question.

Hostmaster: Scientists have recently discovered a "facebook chromosome" in fire ants.  What is a facebook chromosome?


 Well, ants are very social so they LIKE facebook.

Hostmaster:  uh huh.

 Fire ants are looking to infest in new areas. 
Social networking is one avenue they are
 pursuing to increase their exposure.

Hostmaster:  incorrect.

 The facebook chromosome tells the ants where they are in
 the social order, such as drones vs queen?
Hostmaster:  close.  Bryan?
The facebook gene determines whether the colony has one
 queen or several.  The drones can tell who
 the queen is, or are- if there are more than one, by smell.
  Also the drone's ananomy, you know, his
 penis, fits only in the correct queen. 
He can't mate with a queen from a different colony
because his penis won't fit.  It's like a key and lock. 
Hostmaster:  correct.  This is the end of Round 6.  
Round 6 
Fluffy/Molly    3
Bryan/Cyndi    3
 I don't like that facebook has become so sexualized.


  1. This is was a very funny post.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  2. Too bad men aren't like fire ants.

  3. I think I've learned more about ants than I would have expected to!
