Speaking of cooking misadventures, here is another. A young Strange-Tripper, residing in Hawaii (and whose birthday it is today!) was frying up some eggs. Mmmmm, some paprika would be good, so she reached for the jar, sprinkled it on, then flipped them "over easy".
"These taste funny", she thought, but ate them down. Then she had a look at the jar. Completely inhabited with some strange Island beetle! Her Hawaiian friends laughed at the crazy howlie who didn't know to keep all of her spices in the fridge or sealed in plastic zip-locks.... I think she knows now.
