Not to worry. It was my idea to end it and it probably should have been done long ago.

As for below the belt, it's where i do my best work. ;-)

At least you don't sound terribly heartbroken, Shel. How long were you lads an item, anyway?

When you consider that wasps eat spiders which eat flies which eat poo, that just has nastiness written all over it.

Of course, the plants that make up most of the rest of the cracker eat poo directly.

Just because they're caught in the wild, doesn't mean they haven't been eating food that's full of hormones and insecticide. And just how brutal are those 80 year olds to the helpless wasps they slaughter?

Why they boil them like lobsters... throw them screaming into the cauldron, while they do that old man cackle. The nicer ones only do it to wasps cutting across their lawn.

Am I the only one who is wondering how, exactly, does one "hunt" wasps?

I'm guessing a powerful insecticide sprayed from far away. Think: RAID.
In my experience, you have to SOAK them with it. Wasps are tough SOB's.

So, maybe the boiling is more to clean off the bodies than to cook?
(I'm sure they're totally safe to eat after boiling!)

Maybe they don't use pesticide to catch the wasps. Maybe they just suck them up with a vacuum cleaner like this guy.

That's one day's worth of wasps, from a single location.

Maybe they catch them one by one with chopsticks.
