We sell insect repellent!

A Wall Street Journal Headline reads:

Against Insect Plague, Nevadans Wield Ultimate Weapon: Hard Rock
Tiny Tuscarora Counts on Stereos Arrayed In Desert to Repel Hungry Mormon Crickets

This isn't even a joke! Man, and I thought Sunday's LA Times front page was good! Fighting off Mormon insects with heavy metal music? It's too good not to talk about!

Apparently this little desert town in Nevada deals with a yearly infestation of crickets. And it gets so bad sometimes that they march along highways, get squished by cars and make the roads so slick they cause gross car accidents! People drive with brooms in their front seats so they can sweep a clear walkway from car door to front door!

In their desperation to keep the crickets at bay, the townsfolk tried playing heavy metal music and it worked to ward them off and away from the desert homes... like a reverse Coachella effect. How did it come to that? Check out the Wall Street Journal article and spread the word... Origami Vinyl sells insect repellent! Make 'em run to the hills!
