CONTEXT: Woke Myrmecology

We can also tag this with #AgeOfStupid, in that they appended the English plural/epicene pronoun β€œthey” instead of a Latin plural suffix such as β€œayersorum”. Just jamming an English pronoun on the end is as inane as renaming Aleiodes gaga (a wasp named after Lady Gaga) Aleiodes gagashe (or would that be β€œgagshe", if you drop the final β€œa” as a Latin feminine ending?).

The one redeeming thing about this age is that it will give its survivors plenty to laugh about as they dig for grubs with dull sticks among its ruins.
