Pop quiz: Which is a praying mantis and which is Ann Coulter?

Hint: One is a bizarre, frightening creature and the other's a bug.

Hmm. I can't tell, either.

Jim, your difficulty in distinguishing between the two is probably partly caused by your innate sense that Coulter is also a carnivorous insect who often eats her sexual partners after mating, starting with the head and working her way down. Unfortunately, Coulter is not nearly as beneficial to nature as the praying mantis. (By the way, as a former copy chief myself, I liked your reply to the complaint about "proof-reading.")

Unclewilly: In addition, they both hold their wrists at seemingly impossible angles.

OK, this is really just a guess, but I'll say that A is the former teenage TV star and B is the flaky religious sect. Am I right?

Also, notice that you never see a praying mantis and Ann Coluter _at the same time_.

Ann Coulter is the blonde one. That was pretty tough, but it would have been even harder if you had a picture of her eating her young.
