Idaho scientists find the fabled Palouse Earthworm. I find it hillarious and ironic that in the same 12 month period they find this earthworm, reputedly measuring up to 3ft. in length and the UI football team has a winning record. Could they be one and the same creature? Quite possibly! Both live in a dark and musty lair. Both are rarely ever seen. Both are considered somewhat endangered. The one that was caught, earthworm not winning team, measured like 9 inches. Isn't that about the length of Akey's 'stache? Could THAT be the fabled Palouse Earthworm? All 3 spit when threatened. Oh the hillariousness!
