Bag 0' Spiders, from Romania


You could be forgiven if you thought there might be lightly toasted spider exoskeletons inside, if and when you chose to crack open the small pod-shaped thingys in this photograph.

But you would be wrong!

Because you mentally added an extra letter, in your mad enthusiasm to get to the point.

It's "ARACHIDI", you fool, not "ARACHNIDI"! Big, big difference here in Romania, and don't you forget it. Jeez, learn to read!

Mister Nut (the manufacturer) and Mona Lott have warned you. 

And if you don't know "arachnid" is Greek for "spider", then I just feel sorry for you. 

But you're already probably pretty good at Romanian. You just don't know it yet.

For example, you can read this, can't you?

Sure you can.

It means, don't block the damn entrance. Easy.

Or this.

Umm. Maybe not.
