The More You Know

This morning I learned a very important lesson in life:
Never whack a roach with full force. If you do it's guts will splatter all over you.

I feel disgusting right now.

nope. that's what they created raid for.

also, never stomp on one. if it's a female, her eggs may get stuck to your shoe. then you'll have cockroach eggs on your shoe, and you'll track them everywhere. gross, right?

I just get a cup and catch them and walk into my backyard and toss them over the fence.

Or I give them little names like Jimmy or Bill or Fred and just accept their presence. How dirty can they really be? Their little feet are like... size of pinheads. Even if they do walk in cat poo or something and then walk over a plate in my cupboard, it's like an infintesimal amount of poo on the plate. You get more poo in your lungs when you just clean the litterbox. Or maybe people are afraid of the diseases - I dunno. I don't know how many times my illnesses were caused by roach-borne diseases, but I'm guessing it's not many.

Besides, the big ones are pretty friendly.

Hey, Gang! Now we all know what to Evans Tucker for Christmas, don't we? Just Don't forget to poke little airholes in the package, and add a bit of poo to sustain them until the big unwrapping!! Appreciate the gift tip E.T.!

That's why I always cover up scorpions with a napkin or paper towel before pounding them into paste with a large rubber mallet. Plus, it makes clean-up sooooo much easier.

It only goes to prove you didn't have a good working knowledge of bugs in your upbringing!!!!
