You forgot the last part, gwdMaine:

God:  And make it so some of them JUMP!!
Angel: All due respect, Lord, but you gotta stop smokin' that green stuff...

And as far as the 'eight legs' thing goes, it worked for the octopus, didn't it?

Octopus mating is a very dicey activity.
Females are known to eat their mate
instead. They're considered the smartest
invertebrates on the planet and the
male has evolved quite nicely to this.
Instead of mating, it rips it's penis
off and throws to the female so she
can inseminate herself. Then it just
grows another penis.

God only knows, but I thinks that's
the most awesome way there is to tell
someone to go f*** yourself.
