You Will Itch And Scratch Before You Pass Away

Oh, great: "[R]esearchers in Vancouver report that they've found bed bugs with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, or MRSA. The scientists studied five bed bugs, taken from three patients treated at St. Paul's Hospital. All three patients were residents of Vancouver's poor Downtown Eastside, where both bed bugs and MRSA have been on the rise in recent years. The researchers wanted to see if there was a connection. So they crushed and analyzed the bugs and found three samples with MRSA, the superbug that is resistant to most commonly used antibiotics."

Good night,
Sleep tight,
Don't let the methicillin-resistant-Staphylococcus-aureus-infected bedbugs bite.

Further proof that in the war between the kingdoms, the insects will win handily.

@Bittersweet I wonder if Nostradamus predicted this?

Confession: I cannot remember the difference between the words itch and scratch. As far as I'm concerned, they are interchangeable.

@deepomega: itch is something you feel, scratch is something you do.

@deepomega I hate you.

@HiredGoons: If I stop and think about it for about ten seconds I can figure it out. But if I'm just talking, I guarantee I'll fuck it up.
