Not to be outdone by Bernie Marcus Georgia Aquarium, millionaire hip-hop star Lil Jon says hes going to build the worlds largest ant farm on the southeastern corner of Centennial Park!
Itll be a gift to my homies, the crunk king declared.
Visitors to the tentatively titled ANT in tha ATL will be able to view massive ant colonies sandwiched between 40-foot-tall panes of inch-thick glass holding more than 30,000 tons of sand flown in from South Africas Kalahari Desert. The attraction will include exhibits for the whole family: Kids can peer through huge magnifying glasses to view the wonders of symbiosis as cornfield ants milk common garden aphids. Mom and dad will enjoy watching Costa Rican leaf-cutter ants and Samoan weaver ants in giant terrariums that duplicate their natural habitats.
At the end of the half-mile-long ant farm tour will be a tasting bar offering indigenous ant-based delicacies from around the world, including fried carpenter ants from Botswana, an ant-flavored rice dish popular in Manchuria and, for dessert, delicious Australian honeypot ants also available in a low-carb version.
Yo, this place is going to be an 80-proof tourism generator, predicted Mr. Jon, who subsequently advised Mr. Marcus to step off.
The rapper added that if the ant farm is as big a success as he hopes it will be, Ill open a giant flea circus next door, fo shizzle!
