Bat on a Plane...

... a plane leaving Madison.

What Madisonian vampire do you think was trying to light out of here on recall evening?

It was just the Very Reverend Jackson leaving after tiring of trolling for poon and trying to suck Wisconsin dry.

The vampire is either a union official or union-affiliated. After all, vampires are basically leeches that suck on the blood of the producer of said sustenance. All vampires produce are more vampires.

Had a bat in our house last week.
I dispatched it with a mop head.

Flying, they seem about 20 times larger than they are.

When I fish at night they are everywhere. Little unnerving at first when they fly by your face.

I tried, without success, to attract a bat colony into a backyard bat house in an effort to combat the mosquitoe menace we usually face each summer. While the bat house didn't work (still trying to figure out why...placement a la sun was pretty good), there has been a curious lack of little blood suckers this summer.

My hip-pocket theory is that two cicada cycles that hatched earlier this year ate most of 'em.

People on the plane are laughing.

Leaving Madison like a bat outta' hell...

That bat is just spreading his craziness from the capitol.

Or alternatively, maybe Madison is so bad shit crazy even the bats are trying to get out.

Bats scare the hell out of me. It's my phobia.

Has the Freedom From Religion Foundation succeeded in doing away with all Madison's belfries?

Cue Samuel L. Jackson.

And Meat Loaf.

ScottM: Your lack of bats may be due to Wbite Nose Disease, a relatively new fungus outbreak that's killing a lot of bats, mostly in the Northeast.

We used to have mosquito-clearing swoops of bats every evening through our backyard. They made a huge difference in the numbers of mosquitos pestering us for maybe half an hour afterward. The bats have been gone for the past 2 years, but I did notice a couple a couple paying their evening respects a few weeks ago, so there may be some hope.

I dislike bats as much as the next person, but anything that kills mosquitos can't be all bad.
