Ladybugs

I feel bad for male ladybugs.  They are in a constant state of emasculation.

(I wonder if emasculation used to be “demasculation” and then they forgot the “d”.  Nope, apparently not.  But apparently it means “to deprive of effectiveness”.  Ouch.)

Some people call ladybugs ladybirds.  As if there are gentlemanbirds and ladybirds, but when you get to ladybirds you’re now into bugs.  How did that happen?  I like bugs.
