If you pull the wings off a fly, do you call it a
Todd realized this:
Nice one but no. You can call it a dead fly soon
because it will die if it can't fly. Try it! :)
Amr Shalakani came up with this idea:
well i'll call it a wingless fly!
Justincredibe added this thought:
The wingless fly would then transform into a
"crawl", and then you would need a crawl swatter to finish him off
properly. I think K-mart keeps crawl swatters in housewares.
cubedwellerGEA thought up this:
Well, if you take off your shoe and pound on a nail
with it, would you call it a hammer? Probably not...
If you pull the wings off of a fly, you'll probably be most accurate
calling it "dead".
TB summed it all up:
A fly is a fly is a fly. Losing body parts does not
make it anything else. A eunuch is still a man but with an important
piece missing. The lifespan of a fly is too short and the
deletion of body parts is not common enough to call them anything
but a fly
