Rainforest Ragu

It's just like a hot tub, really, except hotter. Yeah, dude, keep telling yourself that.

His trip into the rainforest had been uneventful, other than the constant assault by mosquitoes the size of Hueys. He’d found everything he needed. When he won the Nobel for medicine, it’d all be worth it.

He never saw the net, until it fell on him.

When the native came again to see if he was done, he said, “You won’t like me much. I’m a tough old bird.”

Grinning, the native answered, "Buddy, I can eat anything if it’s got enough sauce on it.”
