American Gothic, Stink Bug Edition

With the late winter warm-up, the stink bug armies are starting to show themselves again in Chester County, PA and other areas. My son came in yelling at me to start caulking every nook and cranny of the house this evening. I asked him, “Why can’t we all just get a long?”

I had been toying with this idea in my head yesterday and figured while I was waiting for a server to restart I’d throw this together. It’s sort of an homage to my grandmother and her collection of American Gothic Parodies that I keep together on a separate site.

The stink bug model was borrowed from Professor Marlin Rice’s article here.

  2. Love this! When I was little, we used to play with stink bug eggs. Have you seen those things? They are as addictive as popping bubble wrap.

      Thanks, SBF! Do you guys have the stink bug plague in Chicago? I’m sure if I venture into my attic I can find all the eggs you need. I’ll ship you a box if I find them. Do you like them plain or chocolate coated?
