Fumigating your house is not fun. You can make it fun by holding some sort of beer bash in your garage while the bug bombs go off, I suppose. At least that’s what I do. Having a Cornhole tournament usually gets things going nicely.
Nonetheless, I think we can all agree that bug bombing is an annoyance. What I didn’t know, however, is that it can also be explosive:
Something smells a little fishy to me. I’ve never had a random pilot light problem. In fact, I spent much of yesterday trying to figure out how to turn ona pilot light in a professional gas oven/stove. Hint to me in case I forget: it’s waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay in the back and can only be reached if you shrink to the size of an atom.
Sorry . . . got distracted.
The bug bombs I’ve used in the past wouldn’t ignite anything. They just sprayed a huge cloud of gas all over the place. Call me naive, but I’ve never seen any bug bombs that had to be lit like something from a fireworks factory until I sat down and started working on this article.
I’m not leaving any ignited substance unattended in my house. That’s just. . . well, it’s just crazy.
While the guy above obviously didn’t have much fun with his bug bomb, this guy used his experience as inspiration:
If only it were that easy…
And then you have The Mythbusters. Bug bombs inspired them in a slightly different manner. And, if you watch that show, you know there always something that’s gonna blow up.
God, I’d love that job. . .
