I have a lot of respect for any person not swayed by social norms in the process of following a "burning" passion of theirs. Scarab workers are just one of the many examples of "taking the plunge" and "submerging themselves" in what "fills their bowels" with the most joy.
Thank you, Kent, for a intricate kind of funny that appeals to an intricate audience, myself included. If there was a news paper for Entomologists, your comic strips would be the hit of the funnys section.
