    All ants are communist/socialist. It's their only common trait other than their creepiness and unbelievable strenght-to-weight ratios.

    Last year, when there was no cool, formal golf outing, COGatorboy #2 and I showed up anyway and played the country club and Meadow Brook. Trucker warned us about the fire ants. Having grown up in FL, I warned the kid not to take this lightly.

    At Meadow Brook, I hit one bad shot (literally, it was bad - every other shot was awful). I was in a pine needle cover and not paying attention. Got them all up my leg. Only one bit before I screeched like a girl and did the "ants on me" dance. I still have a scar from the bite. My son, after seeing the alligator on the pond at the country club and the fire ant dance, is convinced he has no desire to golf Florida again. Wuss!
