I’ve been throwing words out there fairly fast and I need to take a break from writing for a day or so.

Steamboat McGoo has been advertising my “Know your roach” t-shirts and found Joe Sixpack and Susie Homemaker on the street at large at least get a good laugh. And if that is as far as it went, I’d be happy.  Getting someone to laugh these days, or even smile… is a big deal.

But there’s another idea that has been around for some time – The Dude and I were part of something great years ago.  It was the birth/formulation of the idea that since cockroaches are near to lobster on the evolutionary chart (h/t to Alton Brown) why not use cockroach meat to make faux lobster?

Update: My buddy EW1(SG) just gave me hell for grossing him out with cockroaches. Oh, this will really strain a friendship, but what the hell, no guts no glory. I can’t claim credit on this one but I can give it where it is due. Go to this site and look at the T-SHIRT.

Look at the bright side:

1) You have a bugzapper

2) You have incense

3) Both were for no more price than that of watching TV

My post for tonight is the tool I used for the gross-out. It is something I cooked up – the cutting diagram for the American Cockroach, Periplaneta americana. I assume it is called the American Cockroach because they are so well suited for the BBQ.

It was buried in the UN-Bug Eating Post, but here is the TerraLobster™ (AKA “CockTails”) concept along the same lines.
