Subject: Kissing Bug or Stink Bug?
Geographic location of the bug: Marrero, Louisiana
Time: 07:32 AM EDT
On November 23, 2017 the children at the daycare I work at found this insect on the play yard. They think it’s a stink bug, but I’m almost sure it’s a kissing bug. I said the back legs look like he takes steroids and hits the gym regularly for leg day. I’ve never seen a stink bug that looks like this.

Dear Not A Bug Fan,
None of the above. This is a Big Legged Bug in the genus Acanthocephala.
