- Crisis du Jour:
- The heaviest onslaught of June bugs this household's ever seen
Thanks to the one-of-a-kind, custom made Bug Killer Fan installed over my front porch, I awoke this morning to a collection of several hundred dead and dying June bugs lying underneath it. I hope the extra sweeping chore is rewarded by stepping outdoors after dark tonight without being pelted by a swarm of the icky critters.
Bad news / Good news:
- June bugs taste bad: Even toads that try to eat them end up spitting them right back out.
- Poor marketability: Although one website suggested roasting and grinding them into a medicinal bug soup, I suspect Carla's Organic June Bug Farm would be more trouble than it's worth due to high employee turnover.
- The good news: Now I know what all those disgusting worms are that I keep digging up when I weed the flowerbeds.
- More good news: There's no patent on the bug-killing gizmo, so feel free to copycat this design. And who knows, it might even end up being the best-selling As Seen On TV product of all time.
Complete with smeared guts and imbedded insect carcasses

Hint: The secret of the BKF lies in its bug-attracting lights (standard bulbs) and its two-dozen-per-blade swatters. For maximum kills, set to High.
