Bed Bunnies

Today's comic was inspired by a real-live event. I was staying in the second-worst hotel I've ever seen (the first being a hotel in Mexico where I stayed as an international hostage in a commercial fishing dispute; true story) and I was laying in the bed, which I noticed was kind of lumpy. I got up to investigate, and between the mattress and the box-spring I found this: A few scenarios ran through my mind as to how a plastic, light-up bunny ornament got under my mattress. None of them made me feel any better about the thoroughness of the hotel maids.
I've always wondered, how do bed bugs know to set up shop in a bed? I think an insect that can differentiate beds from other types of furniture deserves more research.

On a high school band trip we discovered pornographic VHS tapes and an, um...electronic device under a mattress. We opened the window and flung the device on the roof of the hotel and left a vulgar note saying "I've gone where you can't get me."

We didn't use the word "can't".

But what would you expect from high school boys? There was a cassette for each of us so we split them up and took them home. One of them was Crocodile Blondie. I got an unlabeled one. When I pressed play there were two guys in overalls sitting by a fireplace.

Not that there's anything wrong with that!

I pressed stop, broke the tape, and threw it in the garbage. We checked under every mattress on subsequent trips. No further luck.
