Re: different sort of bug?
The ultimate screen reader, maybe they have some sort of micro-transmitter hidden away to send all your characters and other information back to some greater power somewhere.
When my kids were younger there was a fantastic DVD called G-Force. It featured some guinea pigs doing a mixture of James Bond, Mission Impossible and Charlies Angels. In the film they had various insects with cameras and listening devices. The G-Force guinea pigs had some cool comms kit as well.
