For what, pray tell, does a praying mantis pray?
Fresh blades of grass to eat?
A hot lady mantis for mating?
A healthy green sheen on his carapace?
No birds around to eat him?
No humans around to step on him?
I'm sure he's thankful that he's not a germ or a dung beetle. To give thanks is one reason to pray.
But what if a praying mantis is an atheist or an agnostic? What does he pray for then?
Or what is a praying mantis would rather be a playing mantis? If he is, what game would he rather be playing?
