REGGAE fans reacted with disgust yesterday to reports that a newly discovered, blood-sucking parasite had been named after the legendary Bob Marley.

A chorus of “Why? Why would they do that?” was heard around Half-Way-Tree, Kingston, as the Jamaica Observer showed a picture of the microscopic, milky-white, eight-legged monster to a random selection of music lovers.

Bizarrely, the choice of name was intended as a tribute not an insult by Dr Paul Sikkel of Arkansas State University who so admired Bob Marley’s music he choose to name this discovery after him.

Tell us Stush peeps, was this an outstanding honor or a hidden insult?
