Worst New Yorkers ever.

Everyone knows that eating garlic staves off vampires, but now comes word, via the Daily News, that drinking deters another dreaded bloodsucker: bedbugs. It seems that when the critters feast on sober blood they’re able to grow quickly and lay tons of eggs, while if their human host has been hitting the bottle, growth and egg-laying is severely curtailed. Great news, but bartenders: Please resist the urge to add "bedbugtinis" to your drink menus, mmm-kay? [NYDN]
