“What is this? A strip club for ants?’ Well, by the looks of it, yes it is.
Patrick Tobin from Brooklyn recently had some persistent ants loitering around in his apartment. After setting out poison traps for a couple of weeks, he noticed that the insects weren’t really interested in them.
“They seem to just walk around them,” he told BuzzFeed News.
His solution? He put out some creative and hilarious signs. One was about a miniature strip club – for all those hardworking ants who just want some entertainment after a long day.
Another was a tiny Blockbuster store.
This one righteously made a reference to Zoolander.
And because this is Brooklyn, he also put up an organic market too.
The internet, of course, was impressed with the man’s creativity.
Sure, it's 5 Ant St. in Antville

I texted this to my brother and he only saw the first one and responded "It worked in Beetlejuice"

Ants don't live long enough to have remembered Blockbuster.

But did the signages work? In a follow-up tweet, Tobin said that the strip club had at least one horny ant passed by to take a look.
