I never would have thought to look there.

Ray Harryhausen would be proud.

You'll never find a live one in a package of brussels sprouts.

Add scorpions to the list which seems to confirm that Australia welcomes any uber lethal lifeform that makes it onshore.

I've always suspected that broccoli iwas deadly anyway.

Aldi's response to the lady calling about finding aa scorpion in her broccoli.

"Madame, we are so sorry. We will pay you $500 compensation if you will sign a confidentiality agreement. We can't have publicity on this incident or then everyone will want a scorpion in their broccoli."

This is only one of the many reasons I never buy broccoli.

"She said the eight-legged creature became aggressive when she and her husband attempted to capture it.

"It was very angry," Mitchell said."

If I were the scorpion, I'd be mad too. I certainly don't blame it.

From the news: "Three flights from Australia carrying food, water, medical supplies and telecommunications equipment landed in Tonga on Saturday, as the Pacific nation grapples with the aftermath of an underwater volcanic eruption"

I wonder what else they were bringing? Scorpions in the food?


It was sold as "spicy broccoli".
