Smelly, pesky bugs known as stink bugs have been swarming the Washington, D.C. area -- and when you try to kill them, they just smell worse.

You sure those aren't congressmen?

fish in a barrel. too easy.

They'll invade your attack and come in for the winter time. But on a nice warm day in February, they're going to say, 'Oh, spring,'

I hate it when my attack gets invaded.

Entymology professors - not known for their command of the English language.

They'll fit right in.

Amazingly when Congress goes on vacation the stink bugs go away.

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!

who said this?

YFNRW - I'm guessing it's not (not it snot) the stink bugs.

*Raises hand*


If anyone would like a sample of these stink bugs, of which there is an amazing supply in my neighborhood, please contact me. Cats love them until they break them.

Answer: Sitting Bull

Haven't seen any in my neighborhood yet. Yet.

When I first read the lead, I thought "Congress" but then it narrowed down to Republicans.

"When you try to kill them, before death, they stink..."

usually when i kill things, i try to do it before death. otherwise i'm like wasting my time. also, a lot of things stink after death too.

"... said Michael Raupp, an entomology professor at the University of Maryland. "They want to find a place to chill out for the winter.""

yo dat bug be chillin. got the s.b. in the d.c., MOTW on the d.b.b. crankin up the stank for the executive branch dem bugs they like to party diggity diggity diggity dank.

"Paging Dr. Mud - you're wanted in Etymology, STAT...."

If it's an attack, why isn't Homeland Security deporting these illegal aliens?

Cuz they're hoping for a big turnout of the stinkbug vote in November?

LOL bon.

Congressmen are sh!+birds, which, amazingly, stink to high, holy heaven when threatened, too.

I have seen them around my neighborhood. A couple were crawling on my ladder at work yesterday. Chastened, I will be circumspect.
