anyone ever been "engaged" with STUMP-FUKKERZ?? (aka imperial wasps?)


They bore thier eggs in freshly burnt wood-- a fire fighters nightmare!
Almost as bad as the mutant alien bug i kilt!


They fly at you,, take a smackin from a shovel that makes the shovel RING,, and come back for round two!

No, but I was sitting on a rock at about 13K above base camp in Bogustan
when a hummingbird suddenly appeared and hovered right at my boot, drawn
by my flashy red laces, I guessed. I was mesmerized for seconds until I realized,

"THERE AREN'T ANY HUMMINGBIRDS ON THIS CONTINENT!"

Holy crap! It was huge and it had fallen in love with my foot! <cue little girl screams>

Dragonflies are way cool, too bad they are hard to look at in detail usually, since they are often flying around, like butterflies.

"Take me to yer leader!"



Dood was hanging out in a potted plant by the front door. I think he had
the wrong address cause when I told the wife some dood wanted her it wasn't
a gud scene. I thought I was gonna have to call PETA or something.





Some people are born poseurs, n'est ce pas?
