Years ago I searched the racks at JC Penny for my size pants (32W 34L). After no success, I asked for help. "We don't carry that size" said the guy, and he was kind of smug about it.

Actually, they taste kinda buttery. I picked up one I was showing to my troop, fresh out of the bug shell. It was was just hanging out waiting for its wings to dry and harden. I just ripped off his head, legs, and outer shell and popped him in my mouth.
The boys were impressed; at least the ones that didn’t nearly puke. 🤣
