"Rest Assured.... no flies were harmed in the making of this movie...." OH MY GOD!!!! I thought only my friends were that gross!!! I think it's a girl..... it's a girl......... it's a girl.... ha ha ha ha h aha ha ha ha!!!!!!! "I'm a supporter of biodiversity and I couldn't kill it.... " "I could see its little face peering out at me".... All I can say is OMG because I'm watching it again the 2nd time and laughing even harder and I've got tears in my eyes listening to him talk about how it was rescued and put in the soil and this is the 2nd one he's raised to maturity and how he's come closer to experiencing birth than any other male human being.... OMG... I'm about to pee down my leg.... this is a depends moment.... I'm hoping he got himself a nice tube of triple antibiotic oinment and loaded up his hole!!!

This guy's a riot..He says he didn't want to kill it so what's he going to do with the adult fly near the end...You'll have to watch the whole birthing now won't you. Oh how precious even a face like that little face is.
