Just when everything was so perfect! A wasp! Wasp: Hey! That’s not very nice! Narrator: And neither are you! Always making a nuisance of yourself! Wasp: Well, I do love those picnics! Narrator: But we don’t love you! Especially not your stings! Wasp: Well, (looking at the cast) if you wouldn’t all wave your arms around! That just gets me really angry!
