Not everything on this slowly dying planet has sex the same way. In a world of penises (corkscrewed and otherwise), vaginas, and cloacae, there’s more than one way to generate offspring. In fact, this became a topic of discussion on the latest episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers. Whether he likes it or not.
Seth introduced one of his writers, Dina Gusovsky, and there was only one thing she wanted to talk about: cockroaches bumping uglies. According to Gusovsky, a story about how cockroaches get frisky and how that could soon change popped up in her curated newsfeed. While others may skip such a story, Dina Gusovsky reveled in it.
I’m always a fan of straightforward, reserved delivery when discussing something ridiculous. Gusovsky nails that in this sketch. She’s comfortable, charming, and thoughtful while talking about cockroaches’ proclivity for making food for their partners before jabbing them with two penises. It gets funnier the more she gets into it and the more Seth rejects it. Seth is a great “straight man” for comedy bits, and he’s even funnier here being out … straightened.
The fact that this bit is also not so secretly educational cracks me up. I did not expect to learn about the zoom zoom zoom in ya boom boom habits of cockroaches when I woke up this morning. Yet, here we are. I am also eternally grateful that men don’t have two penises. Can you imagine how insufferable they’d be?
