You probably thought you’d lucked out, and I’d forgotten about Worm Day. You’d be wrong. I just went to Connecticut. I would never forget about Worm Day. Worm Day is where I tell you all sorts of things you don’t want to know about worms, with illustrations you don’t want to see. I wouldn’t miss out on this for the world. Last week, we learned that worms are hermaphrodites. That was a lot absorb, so we stopped there. This is also a lot to absorb: Although worms are hermaphrodites, they still have sex. When they do, both worms get knocked up!!!
I think that’s enough information for this week. (You look kind of shaken up.) I should tell you, in name of science, the illustration above is complete bogus. If you want see what a knocked up worm really looks like, you should check out Herman, the hermaphroditic worm, by clicking HERE.
