Jobless Wasps bored and getting Drunk – Yes Drunk
The British Red Cross is warning citizens of the increased danger from drunk wasps, and the problem basically stems from a lack of anything to do or as we call it, ‘unemployment’, and an ample supply of booze.
With their queens fully supplied with all the nectar they need, worker wasps now have nothing to do but laze around getting drunk on fermenting fruit, according to environmental authorities.
Perhaps better described as retired than “jobless” – since all the workers will have died out by the time winter comes around – the insects are becoming increasingly bold and angry in their old age.
“It’s hilarious that, now worker wasps have finished their life’s work, all they are doing now is feasting on fermented fruit and getting ‘drunk,’” Joe Mulligan, head of first aid at the British Red Cross, says in a news release.
They need to get stoned instead.
