Reminiscent of that bit in Raiders of the Lost Ark, no?
For a stronger reaction…
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.
Some people insects will do anything to get on TV.
“Hey Robert, I have a breaking story for you…”
I would would much rather have seen this kind of response:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4qB6DWWUPXY
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.
The lizards in the media are too smart to do that on camera.
Paging Mr. Pratt, are you there? Talk to me!!
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.
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).
Is that species very common on the west coast? Looks like Periplaneta americana.
Is that Latin for “big honkin Florida palmetto bug?” Because yea, it does.
Can’t even think of one of those, which I have never seen, and I get the heebie-jeebies
Yeah it is, and the Giant Texas Cockroach too. 2 inches of flying loathsomeness.
We have them in Palm Springs. They’re huge, much larger than the one in this video.
Then stop talking about it already!
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!
Is it just me or does this look less like a dog and more like a tarantula with an oversized head? http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2220165/Small-dog-big-dreams-Tiny-terrier-Suni-hopes-crowned-worlds-smallest-dog-dwarfed-owners-phone.html
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.
