Next, I have the most slight of all S8 #36 comic wanks. It concerns the bugs. Bug One! Bug Three! Spike is their Glorious Leader, and why wouldn't he be? He ought to be appreciated by somebody. When speaking of this with sueworld2003 , I began to wonder if the bugs are a metaphor. A metaphor for Spike fans, to be exact. I mean, no matter what the writers do to stomp us out, they can't seem to ever destroy us. The more virulent the poison, the stronger we grow. We live on the slightest of scraps. In the least hospitable conditions we grow more numerous and less susceptible to the toxins of the 'verse. Spike cannot differentiate between us, but still we faithfully serve him. We cannot be killed! Individually, perhaps, but not in our thousands.
Whadaya think? Do the creators think of us as giant cockroaches? How surprised would you be if they did? /snark
