What is the function of the colon in the grasshopper?

The function of the grasshoppers colon is to move the grasshoppers poop out of the grasshopper. The grasshoppers does not have pockets so the colon can also be used to carry things around like an ipod, phone, keys and grass. You know, grasshopper stuff.

Crickets do not have colons nor do they poop. They exercise more than grasshoppers because of this. If they don't burn the food in their stomachs they will explode.
