Like the finest tequila, manufacturers put maggots inside.

Remember to sup them down in one gulp!

Always happens, this time of year.

Specifically this month, too.

And uncannily, on this very date, too - one could almost think there was something a bit special about the date.

I usually put air in my tubes. I'll try maggots but I can't see it working well...

Der'

These maggots are the way ahead and are put in by the makers!
They have proved to be successful in repairing the tube!
If you had mashed them up, they would have turned
into 'Slime' you know that green stuff.

OK I'll shut up.
