I'm using a blowtorch to get rid of weeds but the smell of burning foliage is making me slightly nauseous

I can't cut back the big overgrown shrub at the back of the garden, it's got a nest of little blackbirds in it.
Make a pie

"Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye.
Four and twenty blackbirds,
Baked in a pie."

Even when a cat is being annoying, they're doing it with a specific aim in mind. There's a favourite cat toy under your pillow.

I know you don't
what did you call them? Bland?

Leads to mine: I can't buy crumpets in Switzerland.
