BALTIMORE, MD - John Hopkins University entomologist Greg Eddy announced that a Banded Tussock Moth had been discovered inside Joe Biden's head. According to Eddy, he received a copy of the vice-president's weekly brain MRI and spotted the insect nesting in pile of decayed vegetation. "Haven't seen that one before," said Eddy. "But the yellowish-orange coloration made it stand out among the other moths." Normally ranging from Canada to Texas, the moth may have entered Biden's head during a speaking tour. According to Eddy, "The adult Tussock Moth is attracted to decaying leaves that have alkaloids. Moths regurgitate on the plants, then drink the fluids to acquire defensive chemicals." File footage shows Joe Biden engaged in similar behavior at outdoor press conferences.
