I believe everyone can agree with this.

That sounds amazingly dangerous.

- which is interesting, because I've heard it said that if you don't want to or can't carry a gun, never mind pepper - the best “personal defense spray” to carry is wasp & hornet killer. You know, the cans that blast a firehose stream of high-potency insecticide up to 25' distance? I promise you this will ruin your attacker's whole day. The good news is, it probably won't kill him. Unless his mouth was open…

And it's “street legal” everywhere!

"Only dead roaches are good roaches".

Ha, my grandfather used to say that.
Oh, wait, no, it wasn't 'roaches', it was 'communists'...

What about inlaws?

We never throw out our roaches unless they're dead.

Wow. I vaguely remember one of these floating around the house somewhere. I probably handled it and ingested the chemicals in it (I can almost remember what it smelled like). No wonder I'm in such great health today...

And I just love the name! WHIZOOKA!!! It seems like the packaging and design were geared towards mean and boys, but the ads to women. Unusual for the time. I'll bet there is an ad out there for this with the lil' woman up on a stool, watching her man, her hero, Whizookaing the crap outta some silverfish.

Lots of roaches in her kitchen ... I think I'd avoid anything food-related there.

I wish my name was Whizooka Winnie!

Seriously, I am going to have to remember that for future user name possibilities.
