> > Homosapien Desicus are small, delicate, two-winged insects found
> > predominantly in the Indian subcontinent. They can be
> > distinguished from other such species by a drooping proboscis
> > (jaw) loose due to perpetual talking. Some of them also talk
> > through an air tube at the posterior end of the body. Its
> > mouthparts consist of seven elements: a food channel, three
> > saliva channels, a labium and two channels for talking. There
> > are more than hazzaar of these species, which can be divided
> > into 31 or more genera. These are found worldwide, in all but
> > the most extreme habitats.
> > Large colonies of these species are bred in special habitats
> > called the IITs across India. During this larva stage, these
> > creatures are cocooned from external environment and this is
> > where the anatomical development of body parts like mustache,
> > ego, programming ability and lust takes place. While still at
> > the IITs, the species make tentative jabs at sexuality,
> > primarily during the cultural festivals which are marked by the
> > arrival of the Queens of the species. The primitive fertility
> > rites include producing blood-curdling obscene yells at
> > appropriate intervals and occassionally wooing the female of the
> > species with such offers as "Do you want me to explain the Unix
> > operating system to you ?".
> > After the pupal stage, certain advanced members of the species
> > tend to migrate to other habitats, called American Universities.
> > These young adults have crumpled polyester pants, shirts with
> > flowers on them and are directly interfaceable to computers.
> > They usually follow the money gradient. At first, the adult
> > males tend to congregate together in the same ant hill for
> > greater security and survivality. Less charitable members from
> > habitats other than the IITs would complain, not untruthfully,
> > "Look at them. IIT se keede makode ki tarah aa jaaten hain".
> > Initially, the male sublimates its libidanal energy into

> > After watching some adult movies and visiting topless bars, the
> > insect exerts blood pressure on its body, the abdomen soon
> > expands and very soon the exoskeleton becomes darkened and the
> > male is ready to mate. The mating season lasts approximately
> > twelve months a year, during which the male comes to heat many
