News reporter oblivious to cockroach on shoulder

  1. Their insect overseers normally remain out of view.  This one looked like a roadie running out to check a cord in the middle of a concert – very unprofessional.  I’ve sent a link to his supervisor, Kkk-kkkakzz-ttk.

  2. I’d like to see his right eye slowly roll right, and a quick tongue flick snatching it up as it runs into view, without a hitch in his reporting.

  3. I constantly imagine bugs to be crawling all over me, so when this happens to me it’s really no problem at all.  Kind of a relief in fact.

  4. Ahhhh!  AHHHHHHHHH!  Seriously though, I kind of wonder if we’re just looking at consumate professionalism here. It moves so fast, it doesn’t look real – far north here so I ve actually only seen one cockroach up close in my whole life (and it took TWO stomps to kill it). 

        1. Then picture this prize photo from our honeymoon: My wife posing with a newborn kitten in her hand.  Grinning as she holds it up next to her cheek.  How cute.

          Oh wait!  Kitten size, but wrong number of legs!

  5. Makes me nostalgic for my “talk to customer and make eye contact to draw attention away from furtively picking up a roach off the counter with a napkin” move when I worked at a diner.
