|Weevil, weevil, rock U by minouette|
This linocut on Japanese paper illustrates a terrible pun: 'Weevil weevil rock U' rather than "We will, we will rock you," of course. The larger of these two weevils is the extravagant, long-necked red and black giraffe weevil (or giraffe-necked weevil or Trachelophorus giraffa) from Madagascar which can grow to as long as an inch or 2.5 cm in length. The smaller of these 2 is Neocoenorrhinus germanicus, a blue-black weevil, merely 3.9 mm (0.15 inches) found in Southwest Asia, southern Siberia, Russia, and parts of Europe. They are shown roughly 4 times life-sized.
I found a way to use a single block for two terrible puns. It's the lesser of 2 weevils rather than the lesser of two evils, of course.

This print would make a great gift for the entomologist with a sense of humour or a passion for music, the bug-loving fan of Queen or idiom or typography, the punsters and those who always seem get song lyrics hilariously bumbled. We all have a friend like that, no?
