Ahhhh, the hornet.
Fascinating little winged creatures.
The sting can be quite painful.
Unlike honey bees, they do not die after a sting.
The hornets sting is not barbed, so it can sting a human multiple times. A hornet can even bite and sting at the same time. Ow-eeee!
Most hornets, are relatively passive.
So, if you see a sight like this....
Good advice would be to keep a safe distance. Those hornets - are just doin' their own thing. It's okay to marvel at the power and toxins these little creatures have in their arsenal.
that's not such a good idea.
If you kick a hornets nest,
you should be prepared to feel a sting.
And those stings carry toxins.
Like I said ...
NOT a good idea.
Bin Laden kicked a hornets nest.
And the Navy Seals delivered the sting.
I want to take this moment to thank all of our armed services.
And a President that knows how to take care of business.
We can sleep soundly because of these brave men and women. It's easy to forget sometimes... But there are still Armies of Men and Women out there, that have HONOR, and VALOR. A code that they live by.
I SALUTE YOU!
There's a simple lesson here, too.
We have a saying down here, in the South.
(pay attention now)
Don't start none....
Won't Be None!
