So of course, with the weird associations I tend to make, all I could think of was the scene in Men In Black where the bug grabs Edgar. (You know the scene... "You can have my gun... when you pry it from my cold, dead fingers." "Your proposal... is... acceptable." Then the bug reaches out of the crater, grabs Edgar by the head, and turns him into an Edgar suit so he can go - as K so eloquently puts it - "tear-assing around Manhattan.")
Anyway... does that mean I'm Edgar and the VLA is the bug?
So, you know. Um. Sugar. Give me... sugar. In water. More.
