So how do we follow up a story and poem about disgusting worms you ask? Why, we post a disgusting story about maggots, that’s how!

From the May 1953 issue of Adventures into Terror #19

Kids,before you read this story,go out and get some Eggnog left over from new years that daddy mixes with his vodka,spill it all over the floor,add some spaghetti,strip your feet bare(leave the flesh,mind you),turn out the lights,and stick your feet in the puddle while you read this story!,believe me this feet,er feat makes it more effective!.

Blaaaahhhh!!!!
They use maggots as therapy for certain kinds of wounds. I would have a hard time with that. I'd be tempted to tell them to just cut off the wounded limb!

fyi - Tried something similar years ago w/ chicken skin taken from sealed packages bought from local grocery store. All three times the sealed Ziplock baggies were full of live maggots after a few days...
