As though shit-encrusted cruise ships weren't enough: a Greyhound bus traveling from Atlantic City to New York was forced to evacuate because of a roach infestation:

The bus was carrying 48 people and an unknown number of roaches when it left Atlantic City at 10 a.m., according to Greyhound.

"Once the driver became aware of the situation, the driver followed procedures by pulling the bus over to a safe location and notifying our dispatch office," Greyhound spokesman Timothy Stokes said.

The passengers were picked up by a second bus and given refunds. The first bus, we can only imagine, was left to the roaches, who took the wheel and drove off into the South Jersey sunset, the typewriter click of their wings receding into the distance.
