    Paris hoteliers play the blame game, via Le Parisien:

    A hotel on Paris’s left bank told the French newspaper that every time they have a bed bug problem, the pests are “brought each time by American tourists.”

    The newspaper also noted that bedbugs are a regular fixture at Disneyland Paris — a spot popular with Americans.

    Odd how they're smart enough to figure out the recurring source yet are unable to control the situation.

    What whispers the whisker?

    From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bed_bug#History :

    Bed bugs were first mentioned in Germany in the 11th century, in France in the 13th century, and in England in 1583

    Those were due to American tourists too.

    It's okay, I blame European hoteliers for not understanding constants and variables and the scientific method.
