    I feel like bug jokes are quite underrated now a days. They are very well liked by young individuals that have interest in insects but you have to make sure that the joke is age suited considering some are too young to understand and the ones that are older are just not as interested anymore. Insects also make easy targets due to the amount of them and the magnitude of characteristics that they have.
