Random WOW: ' Fastest Hot Dog Eater '

Strongest Insect

An oft repeated legend is that "an ant can carry ten times its body weight". While sounding impressive, what this does not take into account is the fact that an ant is an ant, a tiny, rather rubbish insect that spends all of its days wandering around the patio looking for crumbs.

But while also fairly useless, the strongest insect is the woodlouse, also known as the 'cheesy bug'.

The woodlouse's great strength comes from a mutant ability to transform into a little shiny ball.

In 1992, one of these louse-balls was fired from a specially designed cannon, and gathered enough kinetic energy to kill a louse!
