Miracle breakthrough

Dr. Sigfreed VanDerfly of the Institute for Diptera Research located in Brussels, near the site of the Langlaglfuer Landfill, recently announced that after many years, had a breakthrough. After all the research, experiments, training and crossbreeding, they had developed a fly that could walk on his hind legs.

He was quoted as saying, "This could cut some disease epidemics almost in half."

He further explained, "The Diptera, (di meaning two and ptera meaning wings), is of great importance as disease transmitters, acting as vectors for malaria, dengue, West Nile virus, yellow fever, encephalitis and other infectious diseases."

He was asked how this research could cut down disease on such a large scale, he replied, "If their feet transmit the disease, and we are not sure, his hind two feet would transmit half of the diseases, rather than all four feet. We have cut the "transmition possibility" in half."
