Plot

"I hate all bugs."

-Egon

Egon had an extreme hatred for bugs: he couldn't stand their very existence. Egon would collect bugs to torture and kill. Then, he decided to take things to a new level by covering a wall of his house with homemade flypaper coated with cyanoacrylate. When he was finished, he gazed back at his work. Little did Egon know, his creation would be the death of him. Then a mosquito showed up, and Egon swatted at it with his flyswatter, only to stump over the bucket of adhesive and become stuck to his wall, completely immobilized. He struggled and thrashed, desperately trying to escape his ordeal while screaming for help, but it was completely useless because no one comes to his aide. After 2 days completely stuck to the wall, he lost all control of his bladder. About 5 days later, Egon was scared, weak, dirty, teetering on the edge of life, until he inevitably died. But the story doesn't end there. The bugs that survived Egon's manic tortures escaped. They smelled his rotting corpse and they devoured him. They also laid eggs in his rectum and other internal organs. They ate, and ate, and ate until Egon was completely reduced to a skeleton, sending the evil house cleaner to the hell as he deserves.

"After a week of being pinned to the wall, Egon succumbs to dehydration... and the bugs move in."
