a colleague has just come into the office and asked us this...he says its too intelligent for us..he's a bit of a 'thick' himself so help us out with this would ya to shut him up? there are 3 maggots come up from cork to do their shopping in dublin. they go to boyers first and then across the tram lines to wynns for lunch, then the baby maggot says 'thanks be to god all 4 of us made it across safely' why? my first response was that one of them was cut in half on the tram line and the 2 halves go on living so now there are 4. apparently its not that my other colleague suggested one of the maggots was pregnant.. wrong its also not that they're living in something/someone and that the 'host' is the 4th.. any ideas? x

Is it because maggots from Cork are thick and can't count? :o0 :ooh >:o) This will be eating me all day now....pardon the pun!

IS it something to do with them being like worms and rebuilding themselves if they get cut in half? I think worms have 2 heads...maybe I'm tired O:|

could it e that the baby maggot wasn't going up for the shopping, only the older ones were,and they didn't count the baby maggot as one?

Aren't all maggots babies though? Isn't the adult of a maggot a fly? Did you find out the answer Rock n Roll?

yeah I would've thought that perhaps baby maggot lived in Dublin and the other three from Cork, so when they arrived in Dublin that made 4?
