It looks like one to me - is it a good weevil or a evil weevil?

Pretty much. The bigger species are more of a pest than the smaller ones, which are generally regarded to be the lesser of two weevils.

Nice shot, JJ. Looks like you've captured the likeness of the infamous Cocklebur Weevil.

The Cocklebur Weevil has a similar, but larger cousin, the Ironweed Curculio. If this is actually the Cocklebur Weevil, it is truly the lesser of two weevils!
