Let’s lighten up Monday with a little bit of silly fun. I think it’s fun to try exotic foods, but this guy takes it way, way too far.
By the way, it’s also available from Amazon.
The Blurting Beetles of Baloogo Loogo by Mathew Ferguson. $0.99 from Smashwords.com

Probably the last thing a lot of us need right now is more cold and ice, but you know what they say: if you can’t beat ’em, read something about a place colder than where you are. If that’s possible.
