Last night pirateguillermo found a Jerusalem cricket at the bottom of the stairs leading into the garage. Despite the verbage from the people on the link provided, this thing is NOT cute, it's NOT sweet-looking. It's gross. It's the kind of thing that would make Henry Kissinger girly scream. This thing is 2 1/2 inches long and just looks DEEE-sgusting. I'm writhing all over in disgust just thinking of it.

We put it in a jar and let the Baby Goddess take it outside for disposal. She was amused, but grossed out all the same.

Oh, god, I HATE those things! They are scary and creepy looking and make you want to drop something heavy on them, like a really big shoe!

No WAY!! I'm not squishing something that bulgy. I just have this heinous image of half a quart of green bug-yogurt spurting out and staining the carpet.

BLEAGGGHHHH!
