Hat tip: hill buzz
In New York, we actually know someone who discovered cockroaches in her kitchen late one stomach-turning night, only to be told by her landlord the next morning that those were not, in fact, cockroaches, but were actually hug-a-bugs.
“Oh, don’t worry about those, they’re just hug-a-bugs. They won’t harm you. In fact, they’re more afraid of you than you’ll ever be of them. They hardly ever eat anything at all, and only come out at night in the dark, so if you leave all the lights on all the time, they won’t bother you.”
Obama clearly bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia and prostrated himself to kiss the king’s ring, in much the same fashion Catholics bow to the Pope and subjects of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth bow respectfully to her. The current President of the United States, however, shows this sort of love and adoration to the King of Saudi Arabia.
Think of that what you want, but it was indeed a bow.
No matter if the White House wants to call it a hug-a-bug-hug or a doubleplusgood prostratedhandshake or whatever other sort of malarkey they choose to serve up today, to endless cheers from the media.
We all know what it is.
We all know what cockroaches are.
The rest is just semantics.
