That Which Crawls Out From Under a Rock

Now that I have launched on my anthropological journey of exploring the four genera (plural of genus) of the family "Geekus Corporus", I have discovered an interesting subgenus. My theory is that this subgenus is somehow a result of crossbreeding of the "Other" genus and Gromphadorhina portentosa, more commonly known as the Madagascar Hissing Cockroach.
The defining characteristic of this new subgenus, is that unlike the mostly harmless and unremarkable "Other", these inDUHviduals have the fortitude of a Nuclear Cockroach. Through RiFs, re-orgs, floods, hurricanes, tsunamis, and even attempts at crushing them with large inatimate objects, these "Others" continue to thrive under the visible surface of the company. Attempts at destruction will irritate these creatures, causing them to emit lots of meaningless hissing noises, and make them scurry away, hiding from the exposure of open areas and light.
No matter where you go, or what happens to a company, the Nuclear Hissing Cockroach "Others" will most likely be the ones that turn off the lights when the doors are finally closed for good.
