Mormon crickets by Swashbookler Mormon crickets by Swashbookler
In pioneer history when the Latter Day Saints came to settle the salt lake valley and while in the already difficult task of growing crops in clay soil in a burning desert; suddeny a plague of huge cricuits (can be up to 2-3 inches long) and came and started eating all their crops. So they prayed and afterward a vast flock of seagulls came and gorged themselves on the crickets until they would vomit then eat them again and vomit over and over until they had consumed all the crickets. That was how the seagul became the Utah State bird because of that incident. Anyway afer "Finding Nemo" came out this joke accured to me. Note this was made many years ago before I had college or photoshop.

Have you ever seen a mormon cricket? Those things are pure evil, they eat each other and they are humongous!
They eat the stucco off of people's houses.

XD The expression on that one cricket's face is PRICELESS. He's like 'O.O Oh CRAP!'
