    Weird Things In The Mail

    Advertisements
    My baby brother has informed me that he's sending me a chocolate covered tarantula (confirmed, he read the back of the package and it is a real spider) in the mail. Because he can.

    I fully intend to eat it - of course I will, it's chocolate - but still. There's a dead spider working its way through AusPost on my behalf, and apparently this means my brother loves me.

    What strange things have people sent you? What strange things have you sent?

    Edible insects are a thing. I've eaten roasted crickets before, and liked them.

    He had the choice of a bag of crickets, a bag of scorpions or a spider, and he picked the spider.

    Idk I'm not gonna eat a bug regardless but it seems like they should be savory, if anything.

    The crickets I had were kind of like roasted peanuts (they were done in chilli and garlic) so I could see crickets working either way. God knows what a spider tastes like.

    I genuinely think he just wants to know what I'll do. I have no confirmation of this, but knowing him I'm SURE he's bet his girlfriend that I won't eat it...

    I've had chocolate covered crickets and they tasted a lot like chocolate covered peanuts!

    Did she like them as potato chips?

    Hmmm. I'm not so sure about that logic. On the other hand, it's not as though I'm not going to eat it...

    Yes, I like crickets. The spider remains an unknown quantity, but I like crickets. How bad can it be?

    I received my spider yesterday. There are a lot of legs, and it's too big to eat in one mouthful and pretend it's a peanut.

    ...I'm going to have to bite it in half. Oh God.
