Tumblr contest winner!

Tumblr contest winner!

Another biking story. That wasp was ... it was huge. Someone in Brooklyn is doing experiments on wasps because that thing was not normal. When Yuko drew this comic I kept telling her to "draw that wasp BIGGER" but she wouldn't because she doesn't believe me. 

Well, I am here to tell you. That wasp. Was not messing around. Definitely on 'roids. Definitely almost died due to unecessary wasp aggression. 

Yuko's Hey Chickadee Tumblr contest is over! Head on over to her blog to see who won. And as promised, she blingee'd the heck out of the winner's name. Thanks everyone who participated, that was fun! Maybe we'll do it again some time, but as a JW contest! We'll see.

That's all for us! Catch you Thursday.

Maybe a cicada killer wasp...

I don't normally comment on these things, but I've seen cicada killer wasps, and thought of one immediately after reading your comments about how big the bug in question was. Cicada killer wasps actually dig burrows, and are truly huge. If one of these thing came anywhere near me, I would have totally freaked out as well. Maybe if you show Yuko this link (http://saltthesandbox.org/cicada_hunt/CicadaKillers.htm) she'll be more disposed to believe you.

Good luck!

I watched an episode of Doctor who which had agatha christie and a GIANT wasp as big as a person.

When I was 6 I had the misfortune of being bitten on the eyelid by a wasp, ever since then I have been known to jump into bushes if I even hear a wasp. That rarely turns out well.

aaauuugggh!

*sees pictures of CK wasps*
*fears*

Those are Hornets, surely? And I was getting wound about my kitchen starting to fill up with dead wasps, but all of the ones that are collected so far would probably only just make up ONE of those bad boys (if you glued them together voltron-style).

Eeesh.

Even if you were exaggerating a little, I don't blame you for freaking out. I got stung just a couple days ago. It was terrible. Wasps suck.

How to fix this problem.

I once worked at a camp, in the range sports section. One summer we had go through the woods behind the rifle range and restring the prerimiter cables (the ones that have signs saying "NO TRESSPASSING SERIOUSLY GUYS YOU'LL GET SHOT OR SOMETHING"). While I was waiting for a co-worker to finish with the hammer and toss it to me, I felt something prick my ankle. As the hammer arced gracefully through the air to me, I looked down to see I was standing in a wood-bee nest. I don't recall if the hammer ever landed.

In the end, I received 30+ stings and was somewhat immune to bee stings for several years. :) During the next summer, I ran into a bee with my face while biking. I know it stung me, but it was totally meh.

That's all gone now, I'm back to being somewhat edgy around stinging flying bugs.

Oh god T-T...

PHOBIA.

When I was five years old, an active wasp nest got tangled in my hair. I have had a phobia ever since. TT___TT

When I visited Moundsville, WV to ghost hunt, we went to a Native American mound thing and climbed it. There were freaking hornet/bee/wasp things I swear they were the size of hummingbirds. They were yellow and black, and had RED STINGERS. Holy crap.

Giant Wasp? Did it look like this?

My friend actually just got in a horrible accident because there was a wasp in the car. She drifted over the line, then over corrected and flipped her car over the bank. She's fine but if there had been a passenger...

Was this the kind of thing that attacked you? I live in Florida and we have total infestations of these "Cicada Killers". They're scary as heck and HUGE, but they don't sting! (They can sting, but they don't usually sting humans or dogs or cats or whatever unless you're, like, hunting them down and attacking them.)

Your freak out, however funny it was, was unnecessary.

I see them all the time at a local park, and everytime I have one of those "OHCRAPIT'STRYINGTOKILLME" moments, then move on to another part of the park, until I see one again, then leave for fear they are all out to get me. I'm allergic, so i freak worse.

It's okay Ananth

I believe you. If my sister is justified in throwing her bike on the ground and running for it because she heard a buzz in her ear that might have been a bee maybe, then you're completely justified in freaking out when Lord of the Wasps lands on you.

I SAW IT!

I work at a park and I was driving the golf kart around checking on the park when all of the a sudden that exact giant freak bee flew at my face and I swerved and almost ended up in a small ditch... THE BEE IS NOT A LIE!

I had a horrible experience.

Grrr I know how you feel! I've seen a wasp fly infront of me when I was doing 100 meter at the finals thing. I actually had to slow down because I hate them and j have a feeling I'm gunna be stung by them...αgain.
Just yesterday I was riding my bike with my dog to the park and some huge black dragonfly with a yellow stripe flew infront of me and I screamed lol (people were staring at me)
We even had wasps make a nest I think it was on our heating duct or something for a whole summer, spring, fall, and the first part of winter. So we were invaded by wasps 24/7. They even came in the bathroom while you were in it, which was a horrible feeling. Like, HORRIBLE. Plus I have a huge case of arachnaphobia and I'm the only one who gets spiders crawling around in their room in every house. ; ^ ;

Big-a$& wasps

A few years back I was sat in my car, and a wasp landed on my shoulder.

I shook so hard to get that thing to fly off I shook my glasses off my face so far they were nearly BEHIND the car and on the other side of the road.

Another time I smacked one with a clipboard, that was my revenge :D
