The story of the boatman's singing penis - It sang loudly and often!

Singing penis wins insect the loudest animal title

Audio here

That boatman’s stridulating like a motherfucker!

Why are all their songs 30 seconds long?

If my math is correct, if that little bug were a 6-foot man, his penis would sing at 90,708.48 decibels.

(The loudest known single event in human history was the 1908 Tunguska Meteor, at 300-315 decibels.)

And I thought this was going to be about a previously-unknown pre-war Disney short. :slight_smile:

I was picturing a Venetian gondolier.

So was I. :slight_smile:

So glad I only have to deal with the occasional cricket that gets in the house.
