Marvel is on a roll with teasers this week, yesterday it was death, and today they look forward to picnic season with an advisory about insect awareness.
This one could be about Yellowjacket, but could maybe be the Wasp, or based on the hue, which clothing catalogs call “mustard” or “yam”, possibly Wolverine, who is dead but expected home soon. This DOES remind of of this anti-limerick, attributed to W..S.Gilbert, the lyricist part of the Gilbert & Sullivan duo, written as a taunt to Edward Lear, who popularized the limerick form:
There was an old man of St. Bees,
Who was stung in the arm by a wasp,
When asked, “Does it hurt?”
He replied, “No, it doesn’t,
I’m so glad that it wasn’t a hornet
