    For a second from the thread title I thought this was about something else entirely. Or maybe a metaphor.

    You really have a live mother effin' wasp in a box?

    Feed it whatever it eats and never let it out of that box. You won't see it again if you do.

    Ah yes. The thread in which Gish captured Blankington Smythe III in a clear plastic box from his natural habitat in Greenwich, CT, and proceeds to break him of his love for polo, hedge funds, and Nantucket red pants.

    I admit that I was very concerned about your well-being for much of this thread and at this critical moment, I LOLed...

    I wouldn't LOL yet. Gish hasn't been sighted today. The wasp might have taken him out already.

    That is pretty close to how I suspected people talked in protestant homes.
