Sorry, we're trying to be more copacetic about bedbugs. But, they've invaded the Empire State Building! Towering symbol of modernity? New York icon? Bed bugs don't give a bed bug fuck. They're taking it down, from the bottom up.

The building issued this statement:

"Like so many other buildings in New York City, the Empire State Building had a small incident of bedbugs. The occurrence was specific to a uniform storage area in the basement of the building. The area has been treated and fully cleared."

This tourist from Buffalo was pretty copacetic about it, though: He told the Daily News, "You would think that for $20 a ticket, it should not be infested with bugs." Just think of it as an free extra treat for the kids upstate:
