Mosquitos, sandflies, and lice all have a meeting about how to find food for the next year. Tiu Namunamu, the chairperson, points out the parts of the human body which are best for food, and the hazards to avoid. The invertebrates all discuss their strategies, and decide which parts of the body they will attack so that there will be enough food for everyone. The meeting finishes with a feast of blood.
