I realized, as I started recording, that Halloween is only a week away and I don’t know what we are going to do this year. As I thought about that I started thinking about the holiday season and how Halloween kicks off the season of spending. Between Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas time, you just start purging cash at the end of October. I also reflect on how my general introversion makes me uncomfortable with holiday travel, and I have a callback to last week’s psychological breakdown.
For the Jackass of the Week, I’m off to Spain for some unnecessarily expensive worms.

-Jackass Of The Week-
Angulas, which in Spanish translates to “baby eels” are a super expensive and rare food in Spain. The thing is that even the people who eat them admit that they really don’t taste very good. They are just limp slimy flavorless white worms. But these flavorless worms can cost over $500 per lb. Why eat them then? Because they are rare and expensive and it shows that you’ve got money to burn on stupid tasteless food.
