40 Hornets, The Executioners Of Love

Sorta reminded me of Salem Witch Trials I've read about in the past Similarly, in this case people could point and say: "They are in love" and they would most certainly be given a hornets blast. Oh they would not cut off the lovers heads as t'was in days of yore. Then they just pointed at you and said: "She's a witch" and then cut off their heads to keep from being a bore. Most popular was to burn them tied to a stake so they could hear the loud fires roar. And was by far the most likely way to do it, untill their came a day when the people saw right through it. But then little is known about this I want to tell you to hold on to your seats. Here is one of the worlds most cruel and remarkable feats. 40 Hornets was all it took from their most powerful venom to work They would just net them over the heads and let them do the 40 jerk That method did not get put down as part of mans cruel punishment as of yet But I don't think it's on the books or against the law to hire 40 Hornets I would bet But love conquers all it hs long ago been decided Though love can be a Hornets nest if love is not abided By the way, this is not a true story. So hope you don't feel the sting of it too badly It is just a wonder that it did not happen as some other things have all so sadly Love to all

    I think this is fun and gives one something to consider. Will the 40 Jerk ever catch on? James
