back in the '60s/'70s, you could buy a package of what looked like dry dirt particles, called shrimp people. add the packet to water and a day or so later you had tiny "shrimp" swimming around in the bowl.

the packaging was very deceiving for a youngster, 'cause it made it seem like you would actually see little sea people -- mermaid-like -- swimming around with little crowns.

of course, a youngster like me would imagine these little creatures could talk, too.

what were they?

anyone know??

They were always pretty creepy to me.
