Don’t forget to poke air holes

Bwog reader John Shekitka reports there is an abundance of fireflies (or lightning bugs) darting around on South Lawn.

Go catch some while a humid twilight descends.

    @Publius What’s all this “John Shekitka” nonsense? The young man to whom you refer is most definitely named Rudy.

      @Junius verily.

  • fireflies says:

    @fireflies or high school students? all of those bratty, angsty teens are scurrying arund south lawn, not unlike the rats that call that turf home.

  • people says:

    @people are closer to curing cancer than to making our asses glow like that when we’re horny. I say that’s a disgrace.

      @Here here.

  • Death says:

    @Death comes for everyman. Let’s absorb it with the fireflies. They will gladly absorb us while they dance above our graves.

  • impressed says:

    @impressed Best batch of comments in awhile.

    @les bleus WHO CARES???

    France just made it to the World Cup finals and will face Italy–how bout some commentary, or is not a single bwogger willing to condescend to such a commoners’ game as soccer??

  • soccer says:

    @soccer I would note that Panini Sportivo has been absolutely packed for the last few games, with standing room only, and even quite a few outside in the italy/germany match-up yesterday. also, soccer is hardly a commoners’ game in the u.s. and is certainly watched mostly by elitists.

    completed unrelated, the plaque commemorating the battle of harlem heights has a hair pick stuck into george washington’s sword case.

    1. reinterpretation says:

      @reinterpretation to consolidate yours and my comment:
      elite = us
      commoners’ = rest of world
