We have a huge kind of mosquito-looking thing in the south called a cranefly. Grandpa told me they were "galnappers" and that's what I've always called them. Several times recently, though, I've had people tell me they were male mosquitoes, and I didn't think that could be true, so I just looked them up. Craneflies don't bite, and neither do male mosquitos.
The picture on top is a cranefly, and the bottom one is a boy and a girl mosquito. The boy is on the right. Anyway, it just seemed funny to me that some people believed two such dramatically different-sized insects belonged together. In any case, they are all icky, but I'll take the craneflies over mosquitos any day.
