Maggot Dance

Imagine my surprise when I read in Eric Zorn’s blog this statement today:

“One of the problems with my life is that it doesn't have enough maggots in it.”

You see, maggots are something we have to deal with at times (actually not infrequently, depending on the season) in the Coroner’s Office. They can be interesting at times, but there does seem to be an inborn aversion to them that can be difficult to overcome. So I was very surprised to find out that there is a ‘fun’ maggot. A maggot that is a dance, not to be confused with a dancing larva (there are times that some of those little creatures are dancing, particularly when they have been exposed to ‘happy drugs’). There is always something new to learn.
