    Fireflies are toxic to most amphibians and reptiles! Unless you prepare them correctly… Be very careful not to puncture the ovaries or liver when filleting the firefly and you’ll probably be OK…

    I figured fireflies would taste very bitter!

    What kind of beetles did he have this morning?

    I’m just wondering because Fireflies (Lightning Bugs) are a type of beetle.

    Also: Fireflies will probably only provide a truly light meal after sunset.

    They both look like they could stand to pass on more than a few flies.

    They need to find a place without the “No shoes, no service” rule.

    Fireflies? That’s blasphemy. How about mosquitoes, horse-flies, or those new biting Asian lady beetles?

    They work at a lighting company so they can write it off as business lunch.

    There’s quite a surprise in a similar vein when Milo, the protagonist of The Phantom Tollbooth, suggests “a light meal.”
