    Its claimed that it was the Beat poet Lew Welch who came up with the advertising slogan “Raid Kills Bugs Dead” while working at agency Foote Cone & Belding. Although many have noted that it is needlessly repetitive (can one kill bugs undead?) It also forms a beautiful mini-haiku.

    Ooops. Turns out that it actually follows the humorous and often cynical form of Japanese Senryū poetry, not Haiku. Damn you public radio for exposing me as a psuedointellectual!

    I recently travelled across Canada staying at hotels and hostels. I had encountered bed bugs twice– one time at a hostel and another time at a hotel. I have to say they are terrible, resilient, little bastards!

    I shot a bed bug in Reno, just to watch it die.

    I bet some band will name themselves “Bed Bug Murder” soon.
