: Good morning, Go-Between! Thanks so much for your timely warning. Let the Dutchie do her worst! I'm fully armed with my trusty flit gun, a 55-gallon drum of something from the 20th century called "Raid" (which apparently makes all bugs shriek, holler, and drop dead) and a vat of Moth Bee Gone sent to me by the Bee Holder, who, unlike SOME, seems to appreciate Sassy's efforts to be helpful. I think any six-legged, winged critter that tries to take a bite out of MY carpets will rue the day he listened to that untrustworthy Dutch Trader, who, BTW, will be MOST surprised to see what Sassy has decided to send HER way!

Dear Mme. Claire Voyant,
It is with great that concern I view the threats to your joyous buzzing of the roofs and towers of Mohicanland. Although the Moth Bee Gone is very effective for protection of fabric, might I suggest some re-engineering of at least one of your remarkable Turkish carpets to include a little innovation we have developed here at the Hive? Particularly I refer to our Bee-2 engine consisting of 5000 worker bees welded together in harmonious union. Provides vertical takeoff and 180 degree instant turn capability as well as other breathtaking features. We can also install hardpoints on the underside of your carpet to enable you to carry a maximum payload - four Stinger missiles and two 1000 lb. Bug Bombs (each bomb releases 1000 lbs. of high-concentration stink bugs). If you wish more information on the features, cost and installation contract, please contact me at our Bee Convincing Sales Division.
Must hurry on to beesness, now.
