[updated] I need advice...

Last edited Thu Oct 26, 2023, 02:06 PM - Edit history (1)

wasps got into my house and are causing a massive problem. I was going to call an exterminator to treat the wasps in my house, but my buddy convinced me to bring in more wasps to sting the other wasps instead. That should work.

what do you guys think?

I just spoke with another friend who gave me some more advice. I think it’s pretty good. If I pray that the bees go away that will help to rid me of my problem. I should also pray for the good wasps as well to make sure that they have the lord and savior protecting them as the combat the evil wasps. Crossing my fingers. Will keep you guys updated!

The new wasps will join forces with the old wasps. They’ll never turn on one another if it means losing the upper hand.

Yeah but the exterminator is trying to tell me what I should do. I don’t like that. Just because he has years of experience why should I listen to what he says? It’s my right to make my own decisions!

That’s how they start taking away your freedoms. Bit by bit trying to tell YOU what to do!

Spray them, it confuses and immobilizes them, then stomp them. Pretend they are Republicans.

Don't be like the idiot who used a torch and took out his garage. I assume you know better, but the story bears repeating.

Be careful.

And if your story is allegorical, so is mine.

Their human counterparts are members of a cult. Isolate them (where's the spray starch for magats? Speak up, readers. )

Or leave your home take animals with you and use one of those wasp bombs. I never used one myself...I always called an exterminator. Good luck.

Solves all your problems in the House. The Senate, not so much.
