If poli=many and tics are small bloodsucking animals

The world makes so much sense

What do you call a group of non-monogamous bloodsucking government workers?

Poly-ticks.

What’s the collective noun for a group of bloodsucking parasites?

A Senate.

If Poly means many then...

Politics means Many Bloodsucking Insects

I always thought the origin of the word "politics" was a strangely accurate description of itself.

"Poli-" meaning "many",

"-tics" meaning "bloodsucking parasites."

So to celebrate the Halloween season...

... I was going to go to a 200 year old building that was apparently set up with shriveled up old corpses, dangerous bandits, bloodsucking vampires, hellbent soulless demons, and the like. But it turns out the Capitol Building is closed for tours until a budget resolution is reached.

What is the etymology of the word "politics"?

*Poli*, from the Greek *polloi*, meaning "Many".

And *Ticks*, from English, meaning "little bloodsucking creatures."
