Wow…I felt emotion from something on holy taco…ok everyone, make fun of me now.
Fuckin’ bat huggers.
This literally made me cry first time I heard about it. I do have a painful childhood memory involving bats though, so…
On a cool spring eve, March 15th, 2009, a bat, crippled and wistful, clung to the Space Shuttle Discovery as it was thrust toward the great beyond. Goodbye and godspeed, my magnificent Spacebat.
At some point during the countdown, Spacebat,a Free-Tailed Chiroptera,was spotted latched to the foam of the external fuel tank, occasionally moving but never letting go. Wildlife experts deduced that he had injured his wing and shoulder, leaving him with little chance of survival. He remained on the tank until launch.
After the smoke cleared, a few select NASA scientists were treated to Crispy Bat ala Tarmac. Elaine Richards, NASA’s highly acclaimed Logistics Officer was quoted as saying “It really does taste like chicken.”
Man, I can’t wait until they start selling the silver plated Albanian 20 dollar bill, hand painted to commemorate this tragic event, with a STRICT limit of 5 per household.
What gave it away?
THAT’S A DUDE!!! THAT’S A DUDE!!!
Oops, sorry, wrong picture.
You know, if it’s your time to go, you might as well go out in a blaze of glory
What if the bat had really been that size, now that would’ve been newsworthy.
One small step for man..
One giant leap for rabies…
I get it now.
Don’t get it.
