Gag Me With a Scorpion

As my job continues to keep me traveling I always try to look for little things to bring home to the kids -- not always, but sometimes. And when I was in the Houston airport last week, I spotted something I just instantly KNEW they would love.
Scorpion suckers --I kid you not this mass of hardened syrup on a stick has a real scorpion in it. Now it dead and all, but at some point and time it was alive and venomous.
At least that was the talk on the street from my spawn.
And while I thought there might be oooohs and squeals -- I was wrong. Dead wrong.
They were bitin and chompin to get to that "real live" dead scorpion.
And overjoyed with the fact they might be able to star in an episode on Animal Planet one day --
Yep, that's me -- settin the bar high and all.
College? Maybe Grad School? Eh, who knows. Animal Planet? Priceless.

i think you need to pile some bricks on MT's head. He is growing too fast!

I leave animal planet on the tv for Daisy when I am gone. She loves it.

I am glad I had finished eating, cuz I am not like your boys my stomach would a turning. I don't believe I would eat on a scorpion stick. But, I would have bought it for my son too. :)
