If deer ticks are keeping you awake, wait til mosquito season

Attack deer

Oh, the humanity! Chased from Binney Park by vicious deer

The Zika virus is coming, just to keep us from totally worrying about chikunguna, yellow, and dengue fevers and malaria and bed bugs.

We could reintroduce the judicious use of DDT, but Rachael Carson’s else polemic against it in her 1962 book “Silent Spring” has convinced the public, as all good big lies do, that “everyone knows” we’ll kill off the birds if we do that.

So enjoy your summer indoors, and don’t let the bedbugs bite.

    Her book was/is inspirational for the Watermelon Movement Racist Wing
    DDT Ban has killed more of our African Brothers & Sisters than anything else.

    Travel to Caribbean, Mexico and South America is done. Forget about young honeymooners (or anyone else) going down there. Donzo. It could be 10 years before we get a vaccine.
    Interestingly, if you get bitten down there, bring it back (in your bloodstream) and happen to get bitten again down in the Civic Center, the mosquito in OG will now carry the virus to the rest of us.
    We have so many south and central Americans here who travel south living and working here in town, there are interesting times ahead.
    It’s not that your nanny and gardener are contagious but they could spread this virus to this area very quickly.

    Dude –

    The debates are really boring without Trump. But do you think any sane person will actually support Trump for POTUS? I don’t know of any Trump supporters.

    Anyhows, this Zika virus apparentlly broke out in Brazil. Does this mean we aren’t going to the Rio Olympics this summer? The Land of the bubble ass? I ALREADY HAVE IT ALL PLANNED OUT!! We are going to have to wait until 2020 for Tokyo? The Mama San Olympics!! While I really look forward to that, I still think we head to Rio. Do you agree?

    Are small headed babies any more alien looking than our current balloon headed babies? Just because you are a balloon head, are you scared of pin heads? Do you only like big things, like all the chubbies you chase? Do you hate all small things? Is this why you are frightened by midgets?

    So I say we still go. What say yea? VERILY!! And at least it doesn’t kill the babies, right? Because that would mean there are DEAD BABIES!!

    Did someone say dead baby?
    What’s the difference between an onion and a dead baby?
    Chopping up onions makes me cry.

    Your Pal,
    Walt
