It's Alive!

Pardon if I make mistakes. I am trying to set my sleeping schedule back to normal by staying up all day. To stay awake, I have the TV on. Currently, I'm watching the View. After the lovely test of the Emergency Broadcast System, it came back to a segment on Outrageous Fashion. The first two I saw weren't really that outrageous. And then....

They showed the most ridiculous accessory ever (at least in my opinion): the Roach Broach (or is that Brooch? whatever...) This is a LIVE cockroach decorated with little jewels on it's back. It's attached by a chain to a broach that you pin to what you're wearing so that it acts like a "leash" for your decorative pet roach. It can actually crawl around on your shirt. I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes. These roaches were MOVING *shudders* Evidently the contestants on America's Next Top Model had to wear them at some point. I wouldn't know as I don't watch ANTM. Poor models.

Listen up people: Buy me one of these and we are no longer friends lol. I have a bug aversion, especially to cockroaches after my trip to Costa Rica. You might too if you reached for your bag to locate your flashlight in a blackout only to encounter a cockroach crawling on it. Ick! I sooo do not consider a cockroach a pet, sorry, entomologists and fashionistas.

What I really want to know is how and why the bleep someone came up with this idea?! Ugh. It even has an entry on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roach_brooch . What will they think of next?
