Cockroach Sombrero

Fashion protection wear

  [vote for,

The brink of nuclear Armageddon.

And as we all know,the cockroach is favourites and possibly odds- on to be the sole remaining survivor.

However by adopting revolutionary insect-weaving technology the Cockroach Sombrero is able to withstand a direct hit from a 50 (fifty) megaton nuclear warhead.

By donning the sombrero in the case of such an incident you are sure to protect yourself and anybody or anything within 1(foot) from yourself.

(available in dark brown & brown)

       I thought this was going to be about hats for insects. La cucaracha, la cucaracha...

       I don't know why everyone seems to think the cockroaches would survive - after we're gone, there isn't going to be any garbage for them to live off. My bet is on the ground hog.

       Why? What do they eat?
k_sra, Oct 29 2003

       I dunno, but they're all but impossible to kill.

       I would vote for this idea if it involved putting tiny hats on cockroaches. As it is, I don't see how this will help the survival of our species, since someone will have to breed cockroaches in order to make the hats and that is just handing them our future.

       //I don't know why everyone seems to think the cockroaches would survive - after we're gone, there isn't going to be any garbage for them to live off.// Is this one of those instant evaporation bombs then? If not, there'll be garbage until the 'roaches eat it all.   

       Personally, I think it'll be those weird looking deep sea fishies.

       Also a tasty, high-protien snack!

       After all the bombs go off, WE will make a tasty, high protein snack.

       I think there might be a problem keeping the hat still: it might get the urge to go crawling away but it would be better if somebody could genetically engineer roaches as big as humans so that we could scoop out their inards and use their shells as protection against the nuclear blast. Then as long as we learned to survive off of eating garbage and feces, we'd be covered. I've been reading too much Kafka.   

       If survival means living inside giant cockroach carcasses while feeding off garbage and faeces, then frankly I just hope I go in the blast.

       You could wear the mega cockroach in the link as a hat just by itself. ewww

       With Putin preparing for nuclear war in the event of Trump Retard being elected, I'm ordering up my sombrero now. It's also an excellent example of halfbaked thinking at its best, so have some cake to be washed down with a glass of heavy water.
