Who Wants A Tarantula Burger?!?

Pretty straight forward question. It's a burger, with some fancy cheese, chili sauce, and a giant OVEN ROASTED TARANTULA ON IT! It's JUST $30! So, you want one?
It's real and you can grab one if you're in Durham, North Carolina this month. Coincidentally, they are celebrating Exotic Meat Month!
But adults seem to be onboard with items like bug ice cream, bug burgers, rabbit meatball subs, plus creations made from camel, elk, alligator, python, duck, ostrich, boar, turtle, caribou, reindeer, goat, and Rocky Mountain Oysters - otherwise known as cattle testicles.
The food creating the most buzz is the tarantula burger and the Tarantula Challenge.
The tarantula burger cannot be ordered, rather, interested eaters come to the brewpub and sign up for a raffle.
If their number is drawn, Bull City contacts them to set up their mealtime.
The burger is made with pasture-raised North Carolina beef, gruyere cheese, and spicy chili sauce. It's topped with an oven-roasted tarantula. Bull City says the tarantula is lightly-salted before being baked.
Some people prefer to eat the tarantula first, while some take it all in at once.
As of this writing, eight people - four men and four women - have enjoyed Bull City's tarantula burger.
