On the Mating Habits of Cock-a-roaches - Part 2

Thanks to budget cuts (I presume) here at the building in which I toil, I am able to follow up with you gentle readers about the fate of the cockroach I have labeled female. (There's a post down below about this entitled "A Cockroach Orange". Go there. Read it.)

Some 10 hours after the first sighting, as I was leaving the office for the day, there she was, still flat on her back. Still wiggling her antennae back and forth. But where was he? Nowhere to be found. His lack of loyalty disgusts me. Next time I see him, he's getting squashed. Probably he just found some younger, more vibrant female cockroach who wasn't stuck on her back and scuttled off with her for some time between the floorboards (if you catch my drift).

CONCLUSION:

Cockroaches don't mate for life. At least not any more than humans do.

Oh, and to respond to The Game (he of the silly comment as to how did I discern the gender of the supine cockroach on the other cockroach post):

Don't you watch the X-Files, dude? I'm sure you remember the fabulous episode where Mulder and Bambi examine the genitalia of an alien cockroach.

My familiarity with the exchange below has proven valuable to me on more than one occasion, I assure you:

===========
Bambi: (Looking at cockroach genitalia) Oh my god!

Mulder: Is it abnormal?

Bambi: I'll say. He's hung like a club-tailed dragonfly
===========

Bambi was played by Bobbie Phillips. The hottest actress to play a doctor ever on tv.

This confuses me. Is a club tailed dragon fly well-hung? I would presume not, but then this runs counter to the exclamation by Bambi. I am under the impression that a woman would react this way more times than not to a large genitalia rather than a small one.
At least they do when I'm drawing a map of some polynesian island chain on them.

I much prefer the phrase: Hung like a Yak. This always confounds and amuses the person to whom it is told.

Yo, Dongley, you better stick to cartography. Vocabulary doesn't appear to be your game.

Unless you are just saying something that doesn't make sense, from my reading of this definition of confound I think you are confused. You should chug a little less prime meridian, my man.

To cause to become confused or perplexed

That is exactly how I meant it.

A passable pop culture cockroach reference, although it pales next to Al PAcino's "Frank, ju a cock-a-roach". However, one must admit, your reference is more on point, if not more obscure.

I recommend eating some cinnamon toast crunch today. I'm enjoying some right now and it is the cat's pajamas!

Cinnamon takes a backseat to no bobka.

Anytime someone says, "Ooh, this is so good - what's in this?" the answer invariably comes back, "cinnamon." Cinnamon. Again and again.

I am a power-hungry, petty little man of small genetalia.

Forgive me - my alter ego is a poor speller. Notwithstanding that the word "genitalia" is correctly spelled in other comments in this thread.
