Manhattan Beach Mottled Roach
While the common cockroach
continues to hold its own against the encroachments of mankind
and the reduction of its food supply through the inhumane methods
of tightly sealed waste containers and insect resistant
packaging, the Manhattan Beach Mottled Roach has an additional
Cockroach, Periplaneta Americana Mottled Roach, Periplaneta manbeachia
As you can tell from the images above, the Manhattan Beach Mottled Roach bears little resemblence to the common Cockroach. The glorious coloration of the Mottled Roach closely resembles certain flowers, and the delicate aroma of the leavings of this amazing insect reminds one of the bouquet of vintage camel urine.
This majestic creature survives only in a small area, completely contained within the city limits of Manhattan Beach, California. It has become dependent on the special nutrients contained only in its small enclave. When this area becomes developed, the Mottled Roach will become extinct, following the path of the Southern California Giant Tree Slug and the Death Valley Yellowfin Tuna.
The special nutrients required for our fellow earth dweller include manganese dioxide, vanadium pentoxide, cadmium chloride (and several other cadmium compounds,) and lead. These compounds are found in other locations, but no other locations seem to have the quantity and quality of these chemicals required by this special creature.
Help us in our quest to save this important member of our ecosystem. Remember to save one roach today, that tomorrow we may save millions! Save a roach today, and pass it along to your neighbor!
This is "Bogart," the official spokesroach of the Friends of the Mottled Roach. Sadly, Bogart has left us. Uncountable millions of his brothers and sisters beg you not to "Bogart" that roach, but to pass it along, and to help keep Metlox Pottery toxic.
