Well, ladies and germs, allow me to present to you the inheritor of that acronym: BBTV is now the name used by Bedbug TV, a guy who makes episodic web video content about how to deal with bedbugs. I think he runs a pest control company. His videos crack me up, particularly the first 15 seconds or so. The one above deals with how to cope with bedbug infestations in your home electronics products, like if your "electronics, books, paintings, pictures, dvd players, radios, alarm clocks, boxes and just clutter in general" is crawling with bedbugs.
I stumbled on them because back in 2007 when we started Boing Boing TV / BBTV, I created a Google News vanity search for "BBTV." We stopped using the acronym in 2009 and switched to "Boing Boing Video," but recently I'd begun receiving new hits on the "BBTV" vanity search -- all of them bedbug videos. B-B-T-V. Four immortal letters. Immortal and unkillable, just like bedbugs.
