La Cucaracha macabre by Pika-la-Cynique La Cucaracha macabre by Pika-la-Cynique
"~We've been around for a hundred million years and we'll be here long after yooooouuu!!!~"



So I guess I missed the December 12, 2012 deadline for this take on a rather classic joke. Majorly influenced by WALL-E, also.

Published in a collective of "The World of Tomorrow!" short stories in comic form that I worked on with kids.

--

Watercolours on ink, deliberate emulation of the style of hilarious and insanely gifted geeky French BD artist Boulet ( www.bouletcorp.com/blog )

Some of the singing roaches in Joe's Apartment were played by members of Rockapella

Just a note, but most roaches would not live long without humans. They are very hard to kill inside a heated structure to be sure, but they are tropical insects, they wouldn't last long in northern climes, and without the easy food that they depend on humans to provide them with, they probably wouldn't last long outside of a house in most environments either. Assuming we are talking about the 30 or so species that humans commonly think of when they talk about cockroaches. There are actually about 4,500 species of roaches that most humans will never encounter.

I'm going to be the nerd and add a interesting science comment:

Studies have shown that cockroaches probably find humans just as gross as we find them, because after being handled, captive cockroaches clean themselves extensively, and it's theorized that it's because they want to get the human smell off of them.

And now for a normal comment:

This is adorable!
