Just Think Of Them As 75,000 Tiny Constituents...

The Prank Instinct Is Warming Up!

Did y'all see in the news where they released 75,000 ladybugs inside the Mall of America up in Minnesota?

It was done intentionally.  There's quite a bit of plant life in the mall, and it was infested with aphids.  Ladybugs eat aphids, and are otherwise inoffensive to shoppers, so they make a good natural pesticide.

It got me thinking about all the two-legged pests that inhabit Sauron's Tower across the street.  A jug or two of ladybugs released near the Nazgul's offices might have a beneficial effect.

Hmmmm...  Calloway's Nursery sells 'em for $9.99 per jug of 1500.   It might take the better part of a C-note to get the desired effect.
