Obey the Butterfly

Vintage butterfly
Natural History
of British
James Duncan, 1840.
Jim hated butterflies. Whenever he saw one, he would curse it a blue streak then wait for a reply. No butterfly ever responded. One day, however, after a particularly withering tirade at a swallowtail, Jim asked his object of invective a question: "Why do you take my verbal abuse?" "I don't," said the evil butterfly, plunging its razor sharp proboscis into Jim's arm, instantly killing him. You can only push a butterfly so far.
