DRUNK WASPS: Just When You Thought They Couldn't Get Worse

Humanity's worst fear has been realized: wasps are getting drunk. And they're not fun drunks, either.

The British Red Cross is warning citizens of a record number of wasps in the UK that are out of a job. That is, their queens are fully supplied with nectar, leaving worker wasps to do nothing but laze around and drink fermenting fruit.

The Independent reported that as winter approaches, wasps are becoming bolder and angrier as they get older. And now these retirees are getting wasted and stinging with more frequency.

“It’s hilarious that, now worker wasps have finished their life's work, all they are doing now is feasting on fermented fruit and getting ‘drunk,’" Joe Mulligan, head of first aid at the British Red Cross, says in a news release.

"Hilarious" is not the word we'd use. "A threat to the well-being of everything good in the world" seems a more appropriate line.

A recent video of a wasp literally tearing a bee in half recently made waves online, and that wasp was sober. We can't even imagine what kind of atrocities this new breed of angry old drunks will commit.

When i was about 12 we had an Allotment to grow Vegetables in, and fruit.
There was this Eating Apple tree with juicy Apples, and a Conference Pear tree.
About August when the fruit was ripe the Wasps gorge themselves on this fruit until they were pissed up (Drunk) so it's not a new thing.
I remember about 6 or 7 Wasps attacking my little sister, and i scooped her up, and headed towards a big shed what we had, only one Wasp stung her, and i managed to shut the rest out.
I don't like to kill anything but i will make the exceptions to a Wasp, and Flies, evil little creatures.

When I was ten I made my first atomic bomb.. Well not quite I took the black powder from a few fireworks (pigeon scares) my dad had. I made a big mother of all pigeon scares.

I had been stung on the tong by a wasp the week before, when I drank the tiny bit of beer which my dad had been drinking and was left in the bottom of the bottle. But the wasp had beaten me to it and swimming around in the beer. Anyway I needed revenge. A suitable target for ground zero. The wasps nest was in the top corner of the garage. I couldn't reach that high so I tied the bomb to the end of a wooden broom handle. I lit the fuse and rested it against the nest.

I ran to the open door and waited. Bang. I blew the fucking nest to pieces. But what I never took into consideration was that a wasp nest is made of paper. Apart from hundreds of pissed off wasps heading my way, there were flying bits of burning paper settling around the garage about to bring death and destruction to my world. I wont bore you with what happened next, as it's still to painful to recollect. Needless to say I have a healthy respect for wasps and a better understanding of how hard my dad can swing a stick.
I question everything. I don't believe anything I'm told or anything I see. Prove it, or fuck off. And that's not me I see in the mirror in the morning.

Wasps do get aggressive late in the year.

There was a renaissance fair, (faire), I went to a few years back and in addition to the interesting bodices around the grounds..

Image

they served up some delicious deep fried turkey legs..

Image

Those darn wasps, all having the munchies from partying no doubt, wanted some of that fried turkey. Granted they didn't eat much, but when one of 'em stung me, my hospitality ran out.

:lol:
