What is it Tuesday?


Warren brought this home last week--compliments of his boss--to hang in the living room. When I kindly asked what it was, he looked at me crazy and said, "Do you seriously not know what that is?"

I eventually made a guess that was close, but thought I'd see how uninformed I really am. Do you know what this is?

For those of you requiring a (not so helpful) hint, the last "gift" Warren's boss gave us was a cow pelvis.

AND DON'T BE A CHEAT AND LOOK AT THE PICTURE'S PROPERTIES!!

that is a wasp/hornets nest. I would guess paper wasps.
He should put it in his shop.
I would have looked at you the same way, I hope he shook his head and sighed as he exited the room.
Love,
Your Hillbilly

Sweet! A gift that keeps on giving, once the wasp eggs start hatching in your nice warm house...

Actually, the hornet brood will die sometime after the first hard freeze, and whatever remaining eggs that manage to survive will die come spring, as they need adults to tend to them....But the nest is ~10 years old, so I'm sure it is pretty vacant.

But have you considered the very real possibility that the nest is also full of caterpillar husks that could reanimate in the middle of the night? Zombie caterpillars are no joke! They are tireless and voracious and your only warning is the scritchy noise of a thousand tiny feet scaling your pillow. Then they eat your face.

Sure, caterpillars are normally herbivorous, but ten years is a long time to go without human flesh. I tried that once and only lasted a week.
