Let's get one thing straight. The Q ain't squeamish. I'm a grown man, and a big one to boot. I don't squeal, and I don't run from no critter lessen it got a few pounds on me, or poison fangs or a fin on its back. But y'all, these bedbugs have GOT TO BE STOPPED! Who's it gonna be, us or them? I say bring our boys home from Afghanistan and send 'em out to fight these babies:
Look what they're doing our fellow citizens of NYC! This is an actual face of an actual person riddled with bedbug bites:
I haven't seen any at our house, but every time I get an itch I think to myself "they don't care if you've been naughty or nice. they don't care if you bathe regularly or not. they don't even care if you're rich or poor. they just want your flesh!!! ALL OF IT!!"
I stumbled on the bedbug registry, and guess what? There have been plenty of reports in SW Lefferts Caledonian Parkside. Check this crazy site out, and remember this is just a tiny fraction of the actual cases in the area: BBR
So watch your back, WASH your back, don't take furniture from the street, don't hug people in fur coats, and sweet jesus please don't spread 'em if you get 'em! The Q is absolutely BUGGIN OUT!!!
