Are these your bugs?
First of all, they’re not bugs. A bug is an insect with mouth-sucking parts. Insects are what we’re talking about here. That’s probably my main beef with Americans’ ideas about insects. It’s like calling all bears pandas. It doesn’t make any sense—the family is called insects and a bug is a type of beetle.When people are like, “Oh, so you like bugs!” I’m like, “Well, yeah, I do like bugs, but really I like insects.” I’m a bit pedantic about that. Hey, man, not all Beatles are called John Lennon. Dominic Monaghan in Maxim Magazine (October 19, 2009)
