I’ve Got (Candied) Crabs


Right now the world is divided into who will and who won’t eat these. They’re Thai Candied Crab. They smell like the sea. Okay, let’s amend that. They smell like the garbage cans outside a seafood restaurant kitchen where the cats hang out. I don’t know what they taste like cuz I refused to eat them, as predicted by my friend Nancy. I love my friend Nancy for a. buying these to begin with, and b. popping one in her mouth. Nevermind that she had a moment just like Tom Hanks has at the buffet table in the movie “Big” if you know the scene, spitting the dang thing out as fast as it went in. She still rocks. My thirteen year old son, however, devoured one happily and said it “tasted like crap” but he’d eat it again if he had to. Nancy has since bet him twenty bucks that he can’t eat twenty of them, no water to wash them down. He took the bet. Would you?

Someone recently passed me a bowl of party snacks with these in them as a practical joke, Since Im a human Garbage can myself I didnt even realize what i was eating at the time. To be honest not half as bad as you would think, shell and all. Now Im still waiting to pass my recent meal so Ill post my results on the exit strategy. That is if I dont end up at the hospital and have half the emergency room in stitches when they x-ray me. ( no Pun intended)

Lastly the scene from Big involved Beluga Caviar not these candied crabs.
