    Just wondering if anything like this has ever happened to anyone else. I just made chicken fingers and fries for lunch, I got about half way done eating it, I look down at my plate and see a little spider crawling over my French fries, Jesus fuckin Christ, I was really enjoying it too lol

    Hasn't happened, but recently had an ant problem. I don't mind bugs outside but when they are near food, it grosses me out.

    Had one crawl out of one of those slits/slots of my microwave this past winter. I wonder how long it had been hidden in there.
    Also had one crawled up under my pillow recently. When I lifted my pillow to fluff it after getting up, the spider tried to run away. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, creepy :eek:

    How Many Insect Parts and Rodent Hairs are Allowed in Your Food?

    but yes once when i was young i was eating a plate of pancakes at some US southern eatery on a roadtrip and i looked down and WHAMMO there was a dead bug on my plate.

    it is gross to actually see it.

    Not in house, but while working out in Aussie Bush no shirt on i brushed against a plant, that had a humoungous spider on it, seems it bit me first, flared out somehow and spiked me with some venomous type spray
    m/fcker i had to endure severe pain and a rash for a few weeks fortunately it was only on my right arm, that is the entire arm.hah

    Last year a failing student brought me a gift. I opened the paper bag and inside were about six fried tarantulas but no dipping sauce! Needless to say, he did not pass.

    I ate one of these fried tarantulas before. It was in Cambodia. It tastes a bit dry. You are right, I think it needs a sauce to improve the flavour. Maybe mayonnaise....
