Everyone knew that the tsetse fly never could evolve beyond his original size. What they didn't know was that it was for this exact reason that he gained an enormous following among the hollyhocks.  Taking up residence in the old Empire State building, he could be seen often perching on the roof watching the hollyhocks sway with the wind until the day he died.
