I would not eat them in a house.
I would not eat then with a mouse.
I would not eat them here or there.
I would not eat them ANYWHERE!!!!

Not while I'm conscious and able to fight them off....................

(Taken from Yahoo Answers..)On average, people ingest between 2-3 spiders per year while they are sleeping. Spiders (and other insects) like dark, damp places to hide, and your mouth is sometimes seen as a 'perfect' place to hide. Gross, isn't it?

Don't stress to much about it though, chances are you have already eaten a couple of dozen spiders and you never even knew about it. Just think of it as protein! Sweet dreams...

I eat clams, mussels, raw oysters and snails and love every one of them. But there is no way I will eat a bug. I don't know why people would even think to do that but not me. If you want to see something really gross (and don't we all? ) tune in to Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmerman. This man eats some of the grossest stuff I ever saw including anything that crawls. He travels all over the world to eat what the people in other countries eat, but only the truly bizarre and disgusting stuff. OMG, are these people kidding?? I guess it's better than starving. Maybe.

Want some "fun"?
Research what is acceptable amounts of bug eggs, larva, pieces and bugs
in processed food. Some are amazingly high!
