Red Wigglers – The Cadillac of Worms
Another busy week on the vermicomposting business front I’m afraid. I’m certainly not complaining, but I really miss being able to write on the blog more often.
Anyway, this isn’t much of a post about anything – just an excuse to get something up for all y’all. One of my customers this week asked me if I was familiar with the funny worm advertising that ran during Johnny Fever’s radio program on ‘WKRP in Cincinnati” (sit-com from early 80′s). The slogan for the company was apparently “Red Wigglers – the Cadillac of Worms”.
I used to watch that show, but the fact that I was a kid at the time and didn’t yet have an interest in Red Worms helps to explain why I don’t have any recollection of that line. Anytime I hear references to composting worms anywhere these days I certainly sit up and listen.
So IS the Red Wiggler really the ‘Cadillac of Worms’?
Well, I guess that up to you to decide. It certainly is an amazing little creature!
In case you are curious, the worm pictured above (out of focus as it is – grrrr) is one of the large Red Worms I found in an aged manure pile. This particular specimen is pretty well the same size as many of my European Nightcrawlers.
Oh, and believe it or not, you can actually get a T-Shirt with the above-mentioned slogan on it. Check them out here: http://www.zazzle.com/krw_red_wigglers_the_cadillac_of_worms_shirt-235494087101854505
Speaking of which – I am actually planning to put together a little online shop for worm t-shirts etc, hopefully in time for the holiday season (so you can surprised your friends a relatives with the ultimate gift – haha). So keep your eyes peeled!
