Links in the Food Chain

And lest anyone think differently. Yes, that is a REAL fried spider Natalie is attempting to, and eventually did, eat. P.S. I just noticed that the critter in the top shot only has 7 legs. Rough life.

"Spiders And Snakes"

(As recorded by Jim Stafford)
JIM STAFFORD
DAVID BELLAMY

I remember when Mary Lou said she wanted to walk me home from school
Well I said yes I do
She said I don't have to go right home
And I would kinda like to be alone some if you would
I said me too
And so we took a stroll and wound up down by the swimming hole
And she said do what you want to do
Got silly and found a frog in the water by the hollow log
And I shook it at her and I said this frog's for you, she said

I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I wanna be loved by you
I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I wanna be loved by you

Well I took out that girl from time to time, I called her up when I got a dime
I said hello baby, she said ain't you cool
Said do you remember when, and would you like to get together again
She said I'll see you after school
I was so shy and so for awhile most of my love was touch and smile
So she said come on over here, I was nervous I guess
Still looking for something to slip down her dress
And she said let's make it perfectly clear

I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I wanna be loved by you
I don't like spiders and snakes
And that ain't what it takes to love me
Like I wanna be loved by you

Fried spider! I'm sitting here with my five year old granddaughter looking at pictures and I agree with what she said - GROSS!

lol, Rock! Then she really wouldn't want to see the plates of fried crickets, grubs or beetles either. :) I have to say, I couldn't bring myself to sample any. Nat said it wasn't awful, but I couldn't get past just seeing the hair on the long crunchy legs.... Blechh!

I got to try fried crickets last fall. They were spicy, salty and had a pretty good crunch. The bowl full of them on the table almost fit in with the doritos and pretzels next to them, just another munchy food. I had several, as did my kids. I think Tano actually liked them, whereas I was just eating them to one day be able to claim that I had. I guess today is that day.

Emily still calls Nat "your sister who ate the spider". Nat sent that photo to me back when I still had webtv so it was big on the screen. Then I think Nat must have left a note or something signed your sister in Christ. Oh occasionally it is your sister who took me ice skating and ate a spider!

Hi K!

Scanning your wonderful photoblog and loving it, until now. I'm having a gastrointestinally unstable moment on this post. My breakfast has just come to an unscheduled end.

Eating fried critters, now that's just wrong. :-)
