Grasshoppers

As a kid, in the Dark Times Before the Internet, we had to play outside. Outside, for those not in the know, is a place so boring we had to catch bugs. With our hands. For fun. Anyway I have never caught a grasshopper that didn’t poop on me, which is rude as heck. But I have it on good authority they are essentially the Cheez-its of Mexican cuisine, which is kind of intriguing and at least all the poop is probably out of them before anyone cooks one. 2.0/5

Fenton Crackshell

Fenton Crackshell is Scrooge McDuck’s accountant. He’s also the secret identity of Gizmoduck, but we’re not talking about that here. His accomplishments stand on their own. This is a duck who can romance the single hottest bird person in all of Duckburg despite living with his mother in a one-room trailer. A duck who won a counting contest against an alien computer. A duck who can wear green and purple together without being the Joker. An inspiration. 4.9/5

Psilocybin Mushrooms

These are ‘shrooms, or magic mushrooms. The kind you eat, or if you’re smart make a tea out of, and then you get really interested in Pink Floyd, and, in my case, what ants are up to when it is nighttime. I can’t do them anymore because, in the past, every time I did them I climbed a tree and vomited out a rainbow made up of my own insecurities and that tree fell down a few years ago so I’m not sure where my insecurities would even go. 3.6/5
