or as I like to call it:

Billions of Inbred Ants Threaten Humanity With Extinction


...whenever ants from the main European and Californian super-colonies and those from the largest colony in Japan came into contact, they acted as if they were old friends... as if they all belonged to the same colony, despite living on different continents separated by vast oceans.

The most plausible explanation is that ants from these three super-colonies are indeed family, and are all genetically related, say the researchers.

'one thing is for certain: there is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. and i, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. i’d like to remind them that as a trusted tv personality, i can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.'

So it is settled. Antartica shall be our rebel base of operations. Down with the Empire!

Aren't you going to check out the fishing there first, before we make such an important decision?

Scary thought. Maybe even scarier than ants.

Perhaps the mastermind of a billion nation strong incestuous global ant empire is at last revealed.
