Now seriously, I don't know why the powers at be thought it was necessary to close the courthouse for such an ordeal. The media bombards us citizens with reports of how crowded the court docket is and warns against frivolous lawsuits. Well hell, there's your answer folks. Imagine how fast the attorneys would go through the court docket if their asses were sitting on chairs filled with bed bugs knowing those little critters were hungry and just dying for a taste of their sweet meat. Those lawyers would be settling cases and makin' deals so damn fast your head would spin. No clean cut counselor wants to tarnish his or her image with a nasty old case of bed bugitis. Think of the undesirable clients the attorney would be forced to represent if he looked like the photo below.
Bed Bug Rash- UGH!!!!!
I'm also thinkin' lame brains would be less apt to bring frivolous lawsuits too if they were in danger of getting a nasty rash from having to sit in a courthouse infested with bugs just waitin' to get under their skin. Long gone may be the days when some holy roller will sue David Blaine and David Copperfield demanding that they reveal their secret magic tricks to him (actual frivolous lawsuit). And there will no longer be a dumb ass who drinks a case of Budweiser, and when he fails to see two rockin' hot babes like on the commercial, sues Anheuser-Busch (another actual frivolous lawsuit). Perhaps every courthouse in America should plant bed bugs all around their courtrooms. Seems like it would cut down on the riff raff fo sho'!!!!!
And in the absolute stupidest move to date, a spokesperson for the courthouse came on the news last evening and clarified that the bug infestation was NOT bed bugs as originally thought, but rather carpet beetles. Now how does New Hanover County, NC expect to deter crime, move those cases through the system at lightening speed, and prevent frivolous lawsuits without a bonafide threat???? Come on, who is afraid of carpet beetles????? I'm tellin' ya, the county had a legitimate shot at cleanin' up this town with the bed bug story. You blew it big time guys!!!!!!
