It's not over yet. Murder hornet talk is rampant in certain parts of our state government right now. According to reports, the State of Washington is teaming up with folks in British Columbia so that murder hornets don't conquer the Pacific Northwest and Canada, which they say could happen in 20 years if we don't whack 'em all. This could make a great movie that takes place 20 years in the future! They could get some old has-been actor to play Inslee (still wearing a mask in 20 years) who teams with the Canadian government and his constituents to battle the giant (more giant than before), stinging beasts. The only problem is that nobody has bullets because of the ammo shortage that started back in 2021, and you have to wait 6 years now for your background check to even buy a gun. So they decide to build a giant wall around the west side to keep the murder hornets out, and they bring in 250,000 National Guardsmen. But as the story goes, the genius powers that be did not keep the murder hornets out, they only locked them in. And the east side lived happily ever after.

Oh, but if you want to read the real murder hornets story about teaming up with Canada to battle them this summer, click HERE.
