Zapping mosquitoes for fun and … fun

I have to admit, I have a hate-on for mosquitoes. Growing up on the prairies, I used to look forward to mosquito-free winters, when the sting came from a lesser evil—frostbite.

In the time of West Nile, Zika and other mosquito-borne diseases, dealing with the pests is a serious business. But what’s business without a little fun?

… given the dour threat of the diseases the insects carry, perhaps a little dark humor at their expense is warranted. As Conlon puts it, “Killing mosquitoes is one of life’s simple pleasures.”
