I was in Shopper’s Drug Mart earlier today and saw gummy tarantulas. Seriously. A big clear plastic tub filled with 8 legged gummies, complete with cartoony looking spiders on the label. I wanted to take a picture of it to put on my blog to say “This freaks me out!”
But I couldn’t do it.
Sure the picture on the label was so cartoony that you could have told me that it was an octopus, I would have went “Cute! An octopus!” But it didn’t say “gummy octopi” on that label, it said “gummy tarantulas”1. And so I’m totally freaked out. To that point that I couldn’t even stay in that aisle. Gah!
1Even typing that word sends a chill up my spine.
