Enjoy a nice spider, open up wider!

September 15, 2009

Eency Weency spider, climbs up my favorite cup
Along comes this dude who eats the spider up,
Juicy, juicy spider, it meets an awful death,
And off goes the weirdo, Mr. Spider Breath!

Blog Guy, it’s a dreary day. Give us a story from some far-flung place, to enrich our appreciation of other cultures.

How about watching our video report on this guy, who earns money eating spiders while people watch.

That may be a little TOO enriching for my gag reflex. What does he eat, like two or three?

Nope, he gobbles like a hundred at a time, and he wants to get into the record books by eating a thousand.

Ewwww!!!! Stop it!!!! Stop right now!!!!!

He says some are juicy, some sweet, some bitter, and some have a milky flavor…

No!!!! What can I do to erase this from my mind?

Only one thing will do that. You have to send this blog item to ten other people, and they must do the same…
