"Tax evaders" should be "Tax collectors". ;)

Gosh! fetuses? I guess old bag regrets to have kids!!!

K said...

No, the old bag is right. It's tax evaders who are the parasites. And they're usually ill-mannered, too, but that's another Venn diagram for another day.

That made me laugh.

Lessie said...

If you don't think the 'fetus' part is funny and/or true, you are obviously not pregnant right now.

the victims cannot be the same species to be considered parasitic

From merriam webster dot com:
parasite
One entry found for parasite.
Main Entry: par·a·site
Pronunciation: 'per-&-"sIt, 'pa-r&-
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle French, from Latin parasitus, from Greek parasitos, from para- + sitos grain, food
1 : a person who exploits the hospitality of the rich and earns welcome by flattery
2 : an organism living in, with, or on another organism in parasitism
3 : something that resembles a biological parasite in dependence on something else for existence or support without making a useful or adequate return

Jessica is dead on here, though tax evaders/collectors depends on whether you consider the host organism to be the individual or the state. Fetuses fit the definition very well though.
The title says it all, the point here is that none of these things are inherently good or bad but they depend on others for their survival.
And yes Anon. the "victims" (hosts) may be of the same species as the parasite.
