Boing Boing informs us that:
The Houston Museum of Natural Science will pay $0.25 each for the first 1,000 living cockroaches brought in by the public at specific times over the next two weeks. The roaches will be part of an exhibit on the “ ‘sanitary’ engineers of the insect world’ ” within the new Brown Hall of Entomology. Those who bring in cockroaches after the 1,000 are already collected receive passes to the new exhibition hall.
Somehow, I suspect there are quite a few Texans sitting on biological goldmines right now. Just remember, the cockroaches have to be alive.
