I hate bugs.
Even ladybugs. Did you know that smelly yellow stuff ladybugs leave on you is blood? Yeah, you heard me. They have a bleeding reflex to deter predators from eating them, apparently peeing out yellow blood does the trick. But why are you bleeding on me? I don’t want to eat you. Trust me.
Not a fan of ants, either. They gross me out beyond belief. They don’t even have lungs. They just, like, breath through the holes in their body. WUT. I also kind of feel like they get in the house just to point out that I don’t sweep and vacuum as much as I should. They’re like entire colonies of mean mother-in-laws or something.
Spiders. Flies. POTATO BUGS. Bugs–no thanks.
So, if I hate bugs so much (so much, seriously), does that just testify to the greatness that is Ant-Man, because it convincingly made one of my most detested bugs actually, well, kind of cute?
Maybe it’s the fact that Scott named him Ant-thony. I love that little guy.
Ant-thony is actually a carpenter ant, who you could basically chalk up to a bunch of d-bags who are infamous for being a widespread nuisance, wreaking massive amounts of destruction to wooden buildings. But I’m almost 100% certain Ant-thony isn’t a d-bag. He’s a cool carpenter ant, I’m sure. Or maybe Scott has to chastise him for destroying the furniture.
I hope you guys enjoy a little Ant-thony in your life! You know, the safe, picture-based way. Because ants are still gross. Sorry, Ant-thony.
What bug grosses you out the most?
