Mega Sticky Trap

A group of scientists are testing a new kind of sticky trap. To get accurate information on its effectiveness, they sent various types of humans across a 20-foot section of the material. First, a scientist as a baseline, then a sprinter, then a sumo wrestler. I was hoping the sumo wrestler wouldn’t get his loincloth caught in the sticky stuff. He does.

Of course, this is an ad, for a Japanese cockroach trap. For such products, we’d hope they do their testing on actual cockroaches. -via Tastefully Offensive  


I think it is also a tie-in to the Japanese TV show (based on the anime) called "Terraformars", in which an attempt was made to terraform Mars by putting algae and cockroaches on the planet to create a simple biosphere. By the time the planet was ready for colonization, though, the roaches evolved into giant humanoid monsters.
