This Post Stinks So Incredibly Bad

I know, I know. The Yankees didn’t make the playoffs. The Steelers are 0-4. Oh yeah, and Congress has decided to throw a temper tantrum and now the U.S. government is shut down. Awesome. But do you want to know what really stinks? Yeah, Stink Bugs! Stink bugs. I’d never even heard of them before we moved to our current house.
