Well, yet again I did something So You Don't Have To.

vox8   sent me...some...

And then city_of_dis  --whose LJ is great, by the way--and I...we...

OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD...



It came in one of those tins that you open on the bottom so that the top will be all...umm...oh god oh god oh god.



Okay, nutritional information. Lots of fiber--big surprise there--lots of calcium.

Servings per can - 6.5? How the hell do you figure that? Did you count all of the...pupa...oh god oh god oh god.



Anyway, let's hit it.




Oh god oh god...oh, wait, it's over now. Never mind.

Well...it coulda been worse.

Way worse.

Sadly, the pupa didn't stay in M-A's stomach for very long.

Said he about the experience:

"Don't sweat it! I haven't puked since New Years, 1999. So it was fun and nostalgic! Really, I think it was probably just that I mixed my drinks, rather than too many drinks or too many grubs.

But seriously; how many people can claim "last night, I upchucked pulled pork, merlot, kahlua, green beans and larvae? It rocked!"


I'm gonna create some space here so you'll have to scroll down to see inside the can.

Now go buy some of your own!

Next time, an all-beverage version of SYDHT.

Until then, smooches to you, my monkeys.

Love,

I bet they have a nutty flavor. And they're low in sodium!

The video might have been missing when you first looked.

With luck, LJ has stopped assing-up the formatting...

I read another review of this elsewhere and they made it out to be much more horrifying.

Say, instead of silkworm pupae, could I just go and grab a few Armadillidiidae? That's like the same thing, only crispy.

I'm so impressed. Not only did you have a special guest for this one, but he ate more than one! It's like the old Life commercials--"city_of_dis! He really likes tolerates them!" Seriously, you are a brave, brave man and a very good friend to do this one with Ben.

And Ben, as for you, are you sure you don't want to give up your day/night/weekend/every spare moment jobs and go into jingle-writing? If you can sell larvae, you can sell anything.

Once you larva
You won't starva


ROTFLMAO!! Just found out about you and OMG you rawk!! That was hilarious and so well done - the filming and everything!! Can't wait for more!! lol

Oh, btw, I don't know if you take suggestions or anything (or if you would consider this gross enough), but I actually like something that pretty much disgusts everyone else who I've ever convinced to tried it. Dried, salted prunes. Most people can't last 10 seconds with one in their mouth. lmao If you're interested, they should be easy for you to find...and I dare you to try them. hehe

Ah, I am glad that something in the box met with your favor! These people don't know how brave you are considering the can was labeled FISH BATE.

There is no way I could have looked into that can and eaten those. I am so glad that I didn't have to.

But obviously I did not hurt you enough. I must remain diligent and keep an eye out for other tidbits.

Did anything else in the box strike your fancy?

Awhile back I saw a show, and it was talking about how we should move to bugs and such as a food source. Supposedly, crickets taste a lot like shrimp.

This got me thinking about starting up some sort of fried cricket fast food chain. It will likely never happen.

So, that being said I'm interested in what these things tasted like, but they certainly do look pretty disgusting, especially in the brine.

Toasted crickets dipped in chocolate taste like Nestle Crunch Bars. I couldn't eat Crunch bars for years, but I got 50 extra credit points for eating a cricket in science class. And 10 points for eating a fried worm (which tastes like burnt bacon, in case you were wondering).

Best part about chocolate covered crickets though...you can tell someone they have a leg stuck between their teeth.

a) I totally have that t-shirt.
b) I bet you don't get to utter the sentence "I just cut myself on the pupa can" very often.
c) I've eaten crickets - one of the best dessert items of my life was a cricket-pecan pie I sampled at the Brooklyn Pie Social a few years back - but no way in hell would I ever eat anything pupafied.
d) As always, well played.

a) You can't get the shirt anymore 'cause Marvel found out about them. :(
b) That is correct. I also keep tearing that wound open,
c) Ooooh...cricket pie!
d) Thank you.

they would probably taste a helluva lot better fresh and toasted, rather than soaked in whatever the hell that is.

I want you to know something... since V-day is coming and I'm feeling all lovey towards my friends and family...

I adore your SYDHT's. I enjoy the laughs. I LOVE Sara, as always. I even respect that you got a drunken friend to help you, despite the throwing up.

But, sTone, there is something I have to tell you. Something I should have told you a long time ago...














I'm laughing AT you!

Upon first reading this, I figured it'd be like crunchier escargot. But now that I've seen you eat it, I think it was more like peanuts that were once alive.

Wait, they're floaty. So what was the point of having them open at the bottom?

(This coming from a girl who stopped eating the wontons in her soup b/c they looked like brains... and she forgot that pork is gross.)

I dunno what the whole "Can Opens On Bottom" thing is about, unless they want more space for label stuff on the top.

I wanna try brains...
