As I watched them carry another corpse from the ER, I asked an intern if that was another victim of the Super Bug Strain.
"T'ird dis week, I can't beliff dis happenin' to's" he responded as he rushed off to assist a small child to correctly put the plastic bag over his head, the ER waiting room having slowed down.
About an hour later, I was allowed to talk to a survior of a Super Bug attack.
She lay in the hospital bed, propped up with three pillows and covered with two blankets. Gauze and bandages cover most of her face and all of what is left of her left arm. She speaks in a muffled voice through the gauze.
"I was out walking Poopsie, my poodle, down by the lake when a Super Bug attacked me. It was about 3-4 feet long and I think it was some kind of beetle. After it attached itself to my arm, two more appeared, a lady bug and an ant.
"The ant got my face good, but the lady bug did the most damage. I..(sobs)..really wanted another child.."
She broke down at this point and was unable to answer any further questions, though I continued to ask for another 5 minutes.
When I questioned her physician, Dr. Albernasty, his comment was that the Super Bugs are bad, but pregnant women or those wanting children should flee from the super lady bug.
Scientist are still searching for answers to this sudden appearance of Super Bugs. Right now the only theory is from Dr. Mindramski of Glendale Communitee College in Glendale, AZ.
He believes that humans using swatters, shoes and hairspray to kill insects has given way to the more resilient Super Bugs of today. He also adds that the strain of human oppression may be a large factor.
"If the bugs become too strained, the strain will make them morph into these Super Bugs", he states
When asked if he was high and just thinking of old Hulk re-runs, he said he must get back to work.
The CDC has asked Americans to stay inside, duct tape all cracks and crevices and do not step on little bugs for at least a month.
The remains of 215,093 victims have been reported and most were found in the feces scattered across the nation.
