The Repellent Run

Hear that faint buzz in your ear? Quick, reach for the electric swatter and get ready to zap, because World Mosquito Day is upon us.

On this day 120 years ago, one Sir Ronald Ross discovered the connection between those pesky, biting buggers and Malaria. The female of the species in particular is known to spread other infectious diseases, such as yellow fever, which some male hashers ‘round these parts appear to have contracted.

Apparently, these menacing mites are particularly attracted to the lactic acid they can smell in sweat, the hot air, the sound of heavy breathing, the smell of people drinking beer, pregnant women and overweight people. Let’s hope there’s not too many of the Shanghainese buzzing blighters out on Sunday or we’ll all get nibbled.

So, no excuses, slap on some extra repellent, hold your breath & run like the wind… or failing that hide behind FFB, they seem to have the hots for her, even though I didn’t know mosquitos used Tinder.

Come get some beer in your veins and let’s get those bloodsuckers drunk. On on.
