I thought those were eggs stuck to the body.

Rick MacPherson

"Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em,
And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so ad infinitum.
And the great fleas themselves, in turn, have greater fleas to go on,
While these again have greater still, and greater still, and so on."

Augustus De Morgan


(D'oh! Thanks to Rick, this is going to look a bit weak. But I'll continue.)

I was reminded of the Jonathan Swift verse (that de Morgan expanded upon).

So nat'ralists observe, a flea
Hath smaller fleas that on him prey,
And these have smaller fleas that bite 'em,
And so proceed ad infinitum


Another creation of a benevolent & loving god.
