A Sign of Stupidity
Posted by Richard Conniff on June 21, 2012
I saw this billboard recently while driving in Northern Virginia. You would think that someone in the extermination business would know that the animal in the middle (“…ugh!”) is not in fact a “bug” at all.
It’s a spider. (“Lemme see, oh yeah, eight legs.”)
And spiders generally do a better job than exterminators at getting rid of insect pests.
Maybe that’s why they want to kill them?
