“Oh crap, folks.” Jerri the Fire Ant was displeased. Her colony had marched for days across desert sands with little to no obstruction. Now she stared down a green wall thirty times her size and seemingly impenetrable. The colony would have to find another way.
“This puts an end to this path. Let’s camp here for the night. Send scouts to the north and south, see if this…thing has an end,” Jerri commanded.
“Commander, I have an idea,” Frank the Fire Ant spoke from the column.
“What is it, Frank?” Jerri was open to anything at this point. The column had to move.
“Step aside, sir,” Frank walked to the green wall and did what he did best; ate. “Oh my goodness it is delicious.”
“Frank, you’re a disturbing genius. Everyone! Eat!” Jerri ordered.
And that is how ants discovered salad.
