Indian English? 017

Nothing to worry about if you're not a "Cockroch" or a "Wight Ant" (termite).

However, isn't this a case of racism toward ants of other colors? What about the 'red' or 'black' ants? Or is this some subtle form of cosmic justice where all things 'wight' are persecuted?

Don't miss the little cloud-like puffs in the top-right and top-left corners of this ad. If you're wondering what's inside of these, they are drawings of 'victims'; those that succumbed to the 'pest control' treatment. Ok, that was a bit labored on my part. Sorry.

And what's with "destroying" things anyway? Seen more than my fair share of that and it's never worked. The more chemical products you use to "get rid of pests", the more you are poisoning yourself. And, the more you 'spray' them with "it", the more resistant they become to "it". But we'll leave these horror stories behind, for now.

Hope you thought this was funny.
