There simply are no words to adequately describe the insanity at work here. Even as each misadventure winds down in disastrous fashion, the new ones follow the same perverted script.

emptywheel @outofideas4anam I'd say the 6' fence would prevent them from competing w/anything OUTSIDE the fence. But I thought that abt the egress too.

emptywheel @KanysLupin They've taken over my egress window--hope the firemen don't mind stepping on strawberries. But they've escaped now.

emptywheel @JimWhiteGNV Well, we're still at the initial, 10 pod stage. And there's plenty of space there.
