I'm looking through some beetles pics at the moment.

I have ruled out John, Ringo.....

SaintGeorge Wed 17-May-06 12:32:59

And the VW - ruled that out as well.

Sorry, lame joke day today. I'll stop now.

This looks like the beetle in my MIL's backyard on Sunday.

DH said it wasn't a cockroach (but he didn't know what it was!!!)

It's a May Bug or Chaffer Bug as suggested by Throkenholt in the other thread

Thanks for the support and helpful suggestions everyone

Ha - see it is Macca after all.

Chaffer bugs love turf. Turf = grass. Grass = what Macca likes to smoke in large quantities.

Ok, I'm going.

Sometimes called a cockchaffer which I think sounds like a pair of tight underpants.
Just continuing the lame joke theme.
