Google Books has given me a late present–many past issues of WWN are now online! Readers of WWN (via the grocery checkout isle, anyway) will remember that they often feature amazingly badly pasted together stories about giant insects!
As a trip down memory lane, I give you–the 23lb. grasshopper (from New Zealand. In theory).
The stories are usually hilarious, and can serve as great classroom discussion points. For example–why isn’t it likely that a 48 inch long grasshopper would exist? I’ve included a shot of the story below (click to enbiggen).
