The grossest thing hecklerspray ever had to eat was a neck-hair shish kebab made with marmalade and the obvious ingredient. We did so because our mother spent so long making it, to leave it uneaten on the plate would have been plain rude. Plus we were extremely hungry.
And you know what? It was actually pretty good – so good, in fact we've been licking the back of people's necks ever since. That's not easy you know, because after the first neck-lick people are always on-guard. The trick is you gotta get the lick in right when you meet somebody, like in the first two minutes. It's always "Hello George, we're hecklerspray. Hey look at that money on the ground," or "The pleasure is ours Eileen. Is that a tick back there?"
Not all culinary surprises turn out quite so well. Why, just recently Christian Bale choked on un-seasoned maggots – possibly the kind with teeth, tongues and stingers.
Our maggot anatomy has not been verified by any house of science.
Christian Bale is an actor who made women cry when his character died in Newsies, but then Demi Moore got to see him one last time as the light of heaven fell upon his soul. Then he pushed the top button in the spiritual elevator and left Moore to struggle through the rest of the eighties and maybe make-out with Whoopi Goldberg some more.
Now though, Christian Bale is such a famous actor he's in movies we haven't forgotten and then made up plot-lines for. He's currently making a film called Rescue Dawn, a tale of a Vietnam prisoner of war who escapes captivity and sticks it to Laos in the process.
One scene in the film required the actor to eat maggots from a bowl. These aren't CGI maggots mind you, they're the real wiggly deal. As the story goes, Bale choked and gagged quite a bit. Movie director Werner Herzog explains the logic of Bale not faking his meal:
"There are too many computer effects in movies these days. I wanted audiences to start believing their own eyes again."
No word on whether Bale used ketchup.
