Crawfish feels like it's literally worth its weight in gold this year in Louisiana, but we're still jonesing for a big 'ol pile of bugs. Here are a few of the things we'd give up just so we could afford some spicy, juicy crawfish goodness.

I won't lie, at this point, I'm considering giving plasma to buy some crawfish, but I just can't bring myself to make the appointment. Times are tough, man! Inflation, taxes, and insurance are all higher than Snoop Dogg, and crawfish aren't far behind... apparently, they're still hanging with Willie!

Seriously, the price of crawfish is so high, we're concerned about the Mudbug Madness Festival coming up Memorial Day weekend in Shreveport. If they have crawfish, will they be too expensive to eat? Heck, lobster is looking more affordable than crawfish at this point! Let's just put it this way, I've never been brave enough to eat a straight-tale crawfish because of all of the wives' tales about them... but at these prices, I'm eating it all!

If you're a crawfish fan, we want to know, have you had any yet this year and if you did, what did you pay? If you haven't, is it because of the price? How much is too much to pay? And if you had to give up something you love for crawfish, what would it be? We're pretty desperate, we won't lie. Here are a few of the things we'd give up for a nice pile of hot, spicy crawfish sitting in front of us right now!
