Desperately Seeking Bedbugs

Posted: October 24th, 2010 | Author: | | Tags: , | 5 Comments »

What’s a girl got to do around here to find a bedbug? Your intrepid authors have been on a hunt through the streets of Greenpoint, but we’re just not connecting with bedbugs. Do they not like us? Are we legally dead and not emitting CO2?┬áDo you have any idea how hard it is to get a bedbug when you actually want one?

We’ve resorted to Craigslist ads. We have noble purposes, we assure you. Sciencey purposes. Our readers will not be disappointed, although PETA might be, but we can’t do it without you, bedbug infested scourge of the city.

You: bring America’s Next Top Bedbug in a jar. Already domesticated, see. We will pay $20 cash for one properly contained sample. Yes, we know it might be pregnant. Those damn things are like hamsters. Meet us at Tiffany’s.

**We could find nothing about the legality of such a transaction, but do advise, and we will re-evaluate our project goals.

    It is true: nothing will be released, bred, or otherwise coddled. If the good folks at Carolina Biological would just ship us a slide of one, sheesh, we wouldn’t have these problems at all.
