  1. Louis, As you know I’m all for fun and jokes. But, this whole ‘Ben Norton head on a cockroach’ thing is just taking it too far, man. I wouldn’t say anything, but this is the second time you’ve done this.

    You owe an apology to cockroaches, the most ardent opponents of chemical warfare. Ben Norton, on the other hand, is a nasty chemical hated by all cockroaches.

  2. Spiders are arachnids, not insects. But I see your larger point. And Tobey Maguire, though not stereotypically hunky, looks a lot better than Ben Norton.
