Yeah. Ant wrangling is apparently a skill that I have yet to learn.

This was difficult.

I thought the hard part would be to find a largish ant.

I thought he'd LOVE the sugar water I put down for him.

Nope! He just wanted to explore my desk. I used a pamphlet to block his way and "steer" him where I wanted him to go.

Over and over...


Anyway, he did a fairly good job at modeling and I put him back outside with some ant water as his reward.

I'm guessing half of the entries will be this mondegreen. It's the only one I found that I could imagine shooting.

Oh! That's not true. I also considered "Doughnuts make my brown eyes blue."

Well deserved - looks so simple but as you have shared - It was anything but. I was one of your 9's and this is a deserved blue ribbon.
