Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

How to eat crawfish.


Crawfish or mud bugs are like shrimp in shape but have a different bite and taste. You grab the crawfish like the person in the pic. Then you twist off the head. Some people suck on the head before placing the head in the trash dish. Then you remove or strip off one or two segments of the body covering at the neck. Some of the body is then exposed. Pinch and pull on that body while you squeeze the tail. Once you get the hang of it the body will pop out of the body covering. You now have a bite of crawfish in your hand. Dip it in sauce and enjoy!

Repeat 50 to 100 times.
