I tried swatting it and spraying it with RAID, but the little bugger has at least 9 lives! What is it anyway? A beetle? A cockroach? A wandering case of the crabs?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who tried to swat it.

Then I adjusted my bifocals and tried to swat it again.

UGH!

This is NOT funny.  I thought I was losing my mind.  I kept squashing the screen.  Then I spent several minutes thinking of how it could get UNDERNEATH my screen.  Then I spent several more minutes thinking of how it could actually be only on the website I was looking at.  Seriously, can this damn thing be removed, please?
