A reader commented underneath a recent post: "Dude. What's with all the Asian stuff? As far as I know you are a total WASP!" Well, yeah. You're point being?
Perhaps he (or she) has overlooked all the non-Asian stuff, like British pipe tobacco, Dutch references, and sneering at Christianity. Plus Ganneval Bondier and Donninger, mentions of a turkey vulture (surely the paradigm of American birds), the Avon Lady, and existential angst.
Or perhaps he (or she) thinks that a wasp should not have any truck with Asian stuff.
Wasps, obviously, are absolutely NOT inclined toward Asia.

He (or she) is thinks unclearly.



Bad vespid; no biscuit for you!
Some distinctions are just not worth making. Food and drink are universal, and world-wide almost everyone wears clothing, made of largely the same fabrics. If you prick them, do they not bleed?

Quote: "Regardless of sex, the hornet's head is a light shade of orange and its antennae are brown with a yellow-orange base. Its eyes and ocelli are dark brown to black. V. mandarinia is distinguished from other hornets by its pronounced clypeus and large genae. Its orange mandible contains a black tooth that it uses for digging. The thorax is dark brown, with two grey wings varying in span from 35 to 76 mm (1 3⁄8 to 3 in). Its forelegs are brighter than the mid and hind legs. The base of the forelegs is darker than the rest. The abdomen alternates between bands of dark brown or black, and a yellow-orange hue (consistent with its head color). The sixth segment is yellow. Its stinger is typically 6 mm (1⁄4 in) long and contains a potent venom that, in cases of multiple hornets stinging simultaneously, can kill a human." 
End quote.
