Target, the Grasshopper

Target, the Grasshopper

While shopping at Target, I noticed this beautiful grasshopper, trapped in the store. It was just a matter of time before some asshole saw it and killed it. So I trapped it in a plastic box and decided to take it home and release it in my yard.

I scanned the checkout for a boy, found one, and told him not to freak when he saw the bug. Figured a boy would think it was cool, not freak out and not be a jerk about ringing up a plastic box with a bug inside. He was perfect.

Took Target home and released him back into nature.
