November 2018

Panel 1
Liz: What the hell are you building in here?
Greg: Fruit fly trap. I don’t know how or why, but our kitchen is officially overrun with fruit flies, and I aim to change that.

Panel 2
Liz: I thought the easiest way to trap fruit flies was to put out a cup of cider vinegar with a funnel in the top, so they fall in and die.
Greg: SURE, that’s what they want you to think. But these little bastards are too clever for that, and they just ignore it altogether. But there’s one instinct that overrides all others in their tiny insect brains: go to the light.

Panel 3
Greg: So I figure, strap a light bulb to the intake hose of the vacuum cleaner, turn out every other light in the house, and you’ve got a purpose-built fruit fly murder machine.
Liz: So what, you’re just going to leave the vacuum cleaner running all night long? Do you have any idea how much that’s going to cost in electricity?

Panel 4
Greg: War is hell, Liz.
Greg: War is hell.
