No worries. We all make mistakes.

Of course, if you let it happen again, you'll have to go in the crawdad tank for an hour. ;D

"crawdad" tank is ? is that like crowded with a different accent? LOL

Bite your tongue! I am a northerner born and bred. I live in Minnesota, and have always lived here.
But yes, I am referring to crayfish (which is what we call them around here).
"Crawdad tank" just has a little better cadence to it than "crayfish tank". ;D

I am Texas born and bred, so it certainly wasn't meant as an insult! I agree, "crawdad" does have a better ring to it.

Sorry. There should have been a smiley there. (in fact, I'm going to go back and put one in). I have some friends who used to live in the South, and we have a sort of North vs South rivalry going. ;D

In TN would too, we went to a cajuin resturant on the road going to Gatlinburg and that's where we get it at. That's our fav meal starter there. The crawdads, that was a food I just had to try back home in WV. My stepdad was eating some and I was too tempted, now when I go out and see them on the menu I order them. (of coarse us southern people eat a lot of strange stuff, my stepdad and my father when he was alive both loved frog legs, I couldn't imagine killing a frog to eat it, besides the thought is gross!)

I won't eat crayfish, but then, I don't like lobster (or pretty much any shellfish other than scallops).

I didn't know how far north they were, I know we had them in wv, when I would help my dad sain minnows we would catch a couple here and there in the nets. I also ran into a couple when I was gathering rocks for my fishtank, here in tn.

Don't think of them as bugs. Think of them as minI lobsters (which they pretty much are).
I will probably try them at some point. I've been working on broadening my food horizons. About the only things I won't eat at least once are creatures that have passed a sentience test (or are just super smart, like octopI and sharks) and bugs (I have a minor phobia).

I couldn't eat shark or octopI myself! Couldn't eat bugs either! Yuck!

Oh, we eat crawdads here too! I personally don't like sucking the meat out of the heads, though. I prefer to buy it already out of the shell and cut up in a good etouffee or somthing. We love to eat gator tail, too! Tried the frog legs - not a big fan.

I live in PA, and catch crawdads in the creek take them up to the fire and steam them myself! they are little loberstery bites of goodness!

And they are cheap, expecially when you catch them yourself, and you own the creek where you catch them!!!

I know they are mudbugs in Louisianna. In fact the mascot for the minor league baseball team in Shreveport is the Mudbugs.
