OK, Not Even I am This Creepy


I am all about the bizarre and macabre, but I couldn't even do this. Though as is par for the course my dear son, has come bearing this type of cockroach as gifts before. He does it and acts as though it is something I should adore, knowing all the while that he is as evil and vindictive as his own mother. A friend of his worked in the entomology department of the university he was attending, so he kindly presented me with a pair of these creepy little creatures. I couldn't really just kill them they are too big and would be more like slaughtering something than swatting it. I couldn't not feed them or deprive them of air that's kind of cold and I do try to be nice. So I waited till just the right time and gave them away to a boy, whose mother would completely flip out when she saw them. I didn't get to see the actual event but heard it was quite the explosion. As my new best friend says, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree."


"Product information: If you are fan of the show "America's Next Top Model" then you may already be familiar with the giant Madagascar hissing cockroach brooch. This piece of jewelry is made from a living Madagascar hissing cockroach that is decorated with Austrian Swarovski crystals. This is one of the few pieces of jewelry that you will own that you will also be able to treat like a pet.To care for your giant Madagascar hissing cockroach broach you will need to make sure that you provide it with the right type of housing and food. Your cockroach brooch will need a dark terrarium with soil and leaf litter as its home, and you will need to feed it fresh bananas and provide it with a damp cotton ball or paper towel to provide it with the right amount of water to survive. If you provide your living cockroach jewelry with the proper accommodations then it should live for about a year. However, most vendors that offer this product will not guarantee that it will live this long.The giant Madagascar hissing cockroach broaches are unique accessories, however, you may be wondering when you will be able to wear this piece of insect jewelry. Well there are several occasions that you can wear this item. First they make an elegant addition to a Halloween costume. Besides Halloween this item can also be worn to posh dinner parties, friendly get-together's, as well as special events.

Oh geez, just when I think you've "topped out" no...it just gets better and better. Where do you come up with this information, or do we want to know? I am concerned you are spending too much time alone. Could we send say Vincent Price over to sit with you for awhile? Oh yeah he's dead...perfect!
Seriously, don't know how you find your subject matter, but it is impressive digging. Let's get one hissing bug ring and share it. You feed and wear it and I'll decorate it...
Karen from A`Musements, but of course

P.S. Did you notice that not even Kimberlee for E & E wants one?!

Awesome! This is from the fabulous Design house, The Black Chandelier. Jared Gold rocks! I want one! I wouldn't wear it though...ewww! But it would be cool living in a big glass apothecary jar with some cool plant specimens! Always a pleasure visiting my dear...
