I do, after all, work for the largest Pest Control Company in Singapore. When I was a kid I wanted to be an Entomologist. Sometimes I like to bust pests on this board on behalf of the Admins as well! :cool:

Hi EF, Kids enjoy their heart out. They don't pay attention to the looks for they go straight for the heart. Your kid would have related to the enjoyment and if they were near him they wouldn't think a second more to ask the man to smile again and engage into non stop laughter.

It is from our aspect that we think that they are making fun of his appearance because it is we who see it that way. :wink:

In the states...there was this commecial for a pest control company. Their commercial was this fake TV advert ... and during the fake TV advert, a cockroach would appear on TV and just start "crawling" on the screen as if it were real. One person actually threw his shoe at the TV to try to kill the fake cockroach. After realizing it was a fake commercial, the man proceeded to sue the company...haha, only in america. as Yakov Smirnoff used to say, America!! I love it! what a country!

Edited to add: The advert was in 2005. Orkin was the company.

An irate Tampa, Fla., woman who tried to kill the roach by tossing a motorcycle helmet at it and instead broke her TV set demanded that Atlanta-based Orkin buy her a new one. Another man said his set was damaged after he threw a shoe at it.

Wasn't it Gil Grissom from the tv series CSI who was into bugs and insects? Perhaps you can consider an alternative career sms. :D
