What It’s Like to Eat A Live Minnow.

As a kid, I loved when my uncle Whitey took us ice fishing.

When they weren’t biting, he’d amaze/horrify us kids by eating live minnows. He said it was for good luck. I never really thought he actually did it– I mean, what kind of sick individual eats a live minnow?!

Apparently, Whitey… and now, me. 

This just might be the most horrifying thing I’ve done on Hey Eleanor (and quite possibly in my entire life). That being said, we did catch a bunch of fish after eating a little live sushi. Maybe there’s something to this legend.

Don’t try this at home UNLESS you have a cold beer handy. Trust me.
