Bedbugs Attack Empire State Building!

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:

"Daddy! Daddy! What'd you bring us back from New York City?"
"Real, Live New Yawk Bed Bugs!"
