So, I was sitting here thinking about the odd things people eat. Like chocolate covered ants, for instance. Then I googled it - just for fun and found this site.

There are some people who may be getting some of this for Christmas. I particularly like the chocolate covered scorpions and the salt and vinegar crickets. (Who thought that idea up?)
The monkey tea actually sounds kind of fun. I might try it just so I can tell people I had tea that was picked by specially trained monkeys. Or perhaps the coffee bean that are "regurgitated by weasels". That might even start a bizarre trend. If I was famous - I'd use my fame to mess with people. I'd seriously drink "regurgitated by weasels" coffee and try to make everyone do it too. I'd make it cool.

I'll leave you with some food for thought...

My next dinner party will include the following; Oyster and strawberry milkshakes, marshmallow and spam fried sandwiches, jello sushi and -- for dessert... I'll have to include some of those gross insects from the site above.

Who wants to come?

But did you scroll right to the bottom?
Right to the bottom where the link to the Naughty Knot is?
"Members of the Roly-Polys will probably struggle to squeeze into them and midgets may find them to be a bit baggy so we suggest you only purchase this if you are within the above measurements."
The tact is stellar.
I wonder though. Are the members of the Roly-Polys those who've eaten too many Chocolate Covered Giant Ants?

That is frickin' awesome!

It's a British site too, I think I'm going to have to order some of that stuff. My wife's a Scorpio, maybe I should get her some of the chocolate covered scorpions for her birthday?

Kat, I'll have to have a boo...

green fish - glad you neaked on over here...extra chunky just for you!

eloh - seriously. Think xmas. If they do an anonymous gift at work - you are all set. Wouldn't that be fun?

Stef - absolutely. But I think you should have a back up for the beloved. (maybe some of the Pearl Lollies -- wink wink)

Did anyone check out the "lawn chairs" (http://www.lazyboneuk.com/store/pro132.html) or the dinosuar shrimp?

Cheezy said...

Unbelievable... do you think they were inspired by that 'crunchy frog' sketch that Monty Python did all those years ago...?

That pearl lolly thing is strange... "Subtle hint"?

Pearl necklace more like!

Actually one year on the American Amazon site, I saw an ad that said "Give your mother a pearl necklace for mother's day"

I so wish I'd taken a screen capture
