Uncle Bob, did you prepare that delicious looking repast? And the presentation! Bravo! But, forgive my ignorance, what is a mudbug?
Your newest fan,

A mudbug is a food slang for crawfish or crayfish.

Miss Terry....

Mud Bugs = Crawfish

Not Crayfish mind you, but Crawfish!

Ahhh, I should be ashamed. My maternal kinfolk are from Louisiana and they always referred to them as crawdads. (That's the same thing, right?) I never ate any because of an uncle, whom I adore, but who loved crawdads and used to do a disgusting thing involving their heads. Anyway, your mud bug cakes look similar to crab cakes, which I also adore. Do they have a similar taste?

Miss Terry...

Crawfish = Crawdads

Crawfish Cakes vs. Crab Cakes = The same basic idea. Obviously one tastes like Crawfish the other Crab.

Pinching (crawfish) tails and suckin heads is traditional fare! You must promise yourself to try it.

Have Lots of Fun!! & Enjoy!

When you're eating whole boiled crawfish, and the "suck the heads", you're not really getting any of the innards out of the head, but rather, the broth and juices that are inside the head.

That's still close enough for me, I'm afraid!

I'm sure it's delicious but I think I'd need Uncle Bob to introduce me to some of his bourbon before I got up the courage to give them a try!

It would be my distinct honor to introduce you to some fine bourbon, and to all aspects of enjoying the culinary delights of boiled crawfish! So ya come on down and we will be sure to pass a good time!!! Oh along with the bourbon, several dances to a Cajun band would be required. Talk about fun!!!!!!! What a way to work up an appetite

Have Fun & Enjoy!
