Yes, there's such a thing...usually followed by a "Bless You!"

A spricket, a spracket, a green and yellow basket...a song by Ella.
Yes there are real Jackalopes, but not Jackelopes. I have one stuffed hanging in my den over the fireplace.

Jackelope. No matter how one spells it....it always reminds me of a young man's puberty.

I doubt they were pulling your leg! They were just misinformed.

So is there such a thing called a Spricket?
a cricket is an insect and a spider is an arachnid. You could no more cross them than you could a turtle and a butterfly. (notwithstanding tinkering with the DNA - I mean if you can put pig dna into tomatoes *anything* is possible n'est-ce pas? - but you cannot cross them in the "natural" way.

Wha-a-at???? What do you mean you can't cross a turtle and a butterfly? I just paid $250 for my swallowtail turtlefly and the guy who sold it to me swore it was real! If you can't trust a guy selling turtleflys on the street corner who can you trust?

What, you too. I had a guy trying to sell me a Crabbitt the other day. He claimed it was a cross between a crab and a rabbitt. He said it was rare and there were only 6 in the world and I could have one for $1000.00. So I told him I would buy one as soon as I get my million dollar check from Nigeria
