This is a public service announcement: Keep all your doors and windows locked, and the drapes closed. This monster will attack anything that moves. When you least expect it, the Giant Mantid will appear overhead, striking with lightning fast speed and deadly accuracy. Running is futile. I repeat: Running is futile. Your only hope is to remain out of sight. If we are lucky, it will only attack Congress, which will contaminate it with the most deadly form of toxin known. It will then suffer a horrible and agonizing death, brought on by a tremendous loss of blood, nausea, heartburn, and acid indigestion!
