Saemon85 : Imagine a world where land mines are only food source for humans...

windtalker : Sometimes evolution makes bad turns. Eating only food that explodes and sends you flying has to be one of the worst diets ever. Such specialized species are often evolutionary deadends because they're so fragile compared to their more generalist counterparts.

Emo Gi : I already touch that and it’s so satisfying when it explodes🤤🤤🤤

Premier112 : Plant vs. Caterpillar. Fascinating. I don't think there's any saving these particular caterpillars from extinction. Seems adapting an "explosion" defense mechanism vs. specialized 1 food source rival spells doom. Ye have been bested, inching wurm. Well played, plant. Well played.

Mr Shambleface : Lol were the kazoos really necessary though?

Lost in confusion : Reminds me of an episode from family guy when peter griffin made exploding cupcakes
