If all ladybrids were females, then how do they have babies?

If all ladybrids were females, then how do they have babies?

It never before came across my mind how a ladybug (ladybird) got its name. If they are all ladies, then how do they reproduce?

Before anyone makes any smart comments, let me just say that I am not and have never been a science stream student. I have always been with the arts stream.(hmmm... I can just imagine, all those who know me, would be thinking that I am joking as my mother is a Biology teacher). But note, I really am not a science student, and you will realize why when you read below.

Here is how I think ladybugs have babies.

Well, ladybugs are such pretty creatures. So I would think that they obviously pamper themselves, just like us humans in a rose petal bubble baths. Theirs would most likely be an aphids bubble bath. (Aphids are green insects that eat plants. Aphids are what ladybugs eat.) So yea, as I was saying, they pamper themselves so well... and in that luxury experience the utmost pleasure which is so divine of the soothing bath. That is when they decide to go lay some eggs, and let more ladybugs experience those divine baths.

Alright. Now I know I sound real juvenile and as you should already know, I just made up that bit of bullshit. Yup, I just read it off the internet on how ladybugs actually have babies. However that is not what is important for this blog.

I am giving out a ladybug award to the person who comes up with the most creative and imaginative explanation to how ladybugs got its name, and how they have babies. It must be totally what you think, and try not to think too scientifically. Just put your answers in by adding a comment to this post. Remember it does not have to be the right answer. I am looking for imagination. The award will be placed in this blog and will have the winners name on it.

This is what the award looks like.

well as lady bugs grow up... they have spots on their backs...the older they get the more spots appear. When it gets too crowded they lay eggs, and a few spots dissappear. then the lady bug prob hatch without spots, and wait till it grows with some spots..

what you say dear?

Well ladybirds originated from a depiction of the virgin mary. So if you look at it from a religious perspective, the same way Mother Mary had Jesus ladybirds give birth to babies just the same.

It is also interesting to note, that Jesus being born was someone who is regarded as the "light of the world". Similar depiction to a ladybug would explain the happiness when people see a ladybird. It's still a bug which crawls but yet people don't mind if a ladybird were crawling on u as it brings u good fortune and does put a smile on your face.

On that note, a qwerky version of how ladybirds give birth could be, when women give birth, in many times kids are called "bundles of joy". Maybe babies from ladybirds are just that. The more joy,happiness and smiles a ladybird brings to people, collects as joy in their wombs until finally a bundle of joy is too overwhelming that it pops out. Hehe ;o)

Happy Reading,

I don't think I'm losing the monitor, it's a fairly new laptop designed for Windows XP by Dell. I'm renting to own it and before I'm done paying it off I want to make sure nothing is wrong with it. I don't use up a lot of space more 2/3rds of the hard drive memory is still available. No viruses ect. The laptop tends to get hot, so I have an icepack wrapped in plastic to keep it cool and protect against moisture. It's doing a great job at keeping cool. So if anyone has any suggestions as to what it is and what I should tell the ppl at RAC, I'd like to know what. Refs preferred. [url=]santoramaa[/url]
