    Are they raisins, or dried flies?

    Hey, the Cul de Sac TV talk show is on the air with Alice offering a topic for discussion, Beni, the moderator of course, with legs suitably crossed, and Dill trying hard to come up with a serious take on the subject but floundering instead into comic relief…

    This silly conversation is just Petey’s way of wasting Alice’s time as revenge for her face-attacking Alien plant. Plus, Petey is a known incorrigible food-o-phobic.

    How on earth did they come up with that figure? Sure Attenborough has made up for my low average – but then again I like raisins – hum.

    Jain extremists wear face masks so that they don’t accidentally kill insects by breathing them in, they’re so pro-life.

    Eldest Daughter, the Republican, has been ranting about food shortages and how Nicole Kidman wants us all to eat bugs. I shot her off a list of places where eating bugs is quite common. She sent me another rant. I have no idea where this kid came from!

    FDA allows a tiny amount of bug parts in our food. It’s all cooked, so no big deal.

    Well, there is reportedly an “acceptable amount of bug parts” (among other things) in food in the FDA guidelines.

    At 5 I was pranked into believing that the black dots in a cut banana were from a spider trying to walk across it and losing some of its legs.

    In 7th grade, I had a biology teacher who would show us how other cultures ate chocolate covered ants and grasshopper heads. He’d have a beaker of chocolate up front and show grasshopper heads on a towel and he would dip them. Then he told us that he’d done some earlier and invited us to try them. A few brave kids did and said they kind of tasted like chocolate covered raisins (which, of course, is what they were). The rest of us started to take them from the teacher’s hand and from the table. At the end, some said the heads were also kind of crunchy. Our teacher smiled and said that raisins weren’t crunchy. Several students turned an interesting shade of green.

    If they go crunch, they weren’t raisins.

    The saying in our family (used after kids complained about getting dirt in a picnic sandwich) was, “You eat a peck of dirt in your life. (Get over it.)”

    My grandfather once ate a slice of apple pie after he realized that what he thought was cinnamon was really little red ants.

    Figs have dead female fig wasps in them. It’s the way it has to be; neither figs or fig wasps can survive without each other, and burrowing into the fig flower (a one-way trip) is how the female pollinates it. The resulting fig fruit mostly digests the dead wasp, but…it’s not perfect. But contrary to popular belief, the crunch of a fig is not the wasps, it’s the seeds….mostly.

    Dill speaks the truth! Raisins are a plot to get us to eat more bugs! Down with raisins!

    Nah, kids. They hide the bugs in the bushel of dirt that my Grandma said everyone eats before they die….
