    Default Bad Boy

    Check this bad boy out! This is what we deal with here in Florida. He was very strong and didn't want to come off! It was a good wrestling match

    They are. When I'm mowing, I don't wear safety goggles because of the debris - I wear them because of the grasshoppers!!

    OMG! hahaha.... If I could get people to eat them, we could supply the whole market! The one thing that grows in abundance here in Arkansas every summer are the grasshoppers.

    I've eaten some pretty strange things in my travels, but unless I'm offered this as a cultural thing in someone's home, nope, not tempted. haha....
