How To Survive a World-Wide Depression

Fears of New Dark Ages Mitigated by Mississippi Survivalist with Earthy Proposition

by Winsip Custer  CPW News Service

     With the announcement that Russia and China will begin to trade their currency, thus threatening the value of the dollar as a benchmark, survivalists in America have gone into high gear.  Many have sought out Mormon friends to get their suggestions on a one year survivalist food pantry and on how to can fruits and vegetables for the long haul should the world face a mega-depression.

     John Walker Jones of Enterprise, Mississippi is not concerned.  He says "you have to start with your basic commodity for humans....protein.  Where will you get your protein?  If you can get it, you can survive with little else.   Matches?  Don't need 'em. Got two sticks. Electricity?  Abe Lincoln became President of the United States without it. So if you have a source of protein you're gonna' survive.  When you think of the Pilgrims' first winter in the New World, many starved because they didn't know that the Mayflower was floating above a huge source of fresh protein.  Clams and oysters.  Why they'd of been just fine if they could hold their breath or, heck, just get their britches dirty diggin'.  But did they?" asked Jones.

     "I had a friend sailing along the Somalia Coast in a forty-five foot sailboat.  They made the passage at night to to avoid pirates, but they could see and hear gunfire on shore in the distance and they heard about people starving there on their radio.  Meanwhile they were fishing using a static line, a line tied to the back of the boat while trolling a hook tied to a beer can tab.  Had all the fish they could eat and they thought 'what a shame it was that the people ashore were too selfish or stupid to look around and make use of what they had.'  Life at sea presents some unique survival problems that you don't face on land.  On land the answer is simple: earthworms."

     He's right.  Darwin calculated that most arable lands contains about 50,000 earth worms per acre, but more recent research from Rothamsted Experimental Station shows figures of even poor soil supporting a quarter of a million earth worms per acre.  Some say that rich farmland may yield just under two million earthworms per acre.  That means that the total weight of the protein beneath the soil could be greater than that of his cows on top of it.  
Up to between 1,500,000-2,000,000 per acre in better soil.

     "Earthworms are definitely an acquired taste, but wasn't the first raw oyster?  I like mine fried in a little olive oil and if I run out of olive oil, I can saute them in a little lemon, orange or grapefruit zest from the trees in my yard.  You get them to come to the surface with a wooden stake and a wood rasp or file.  Pound the stake down about two feet and vigorously file the top of the stake and then just look around you and you'll see breakfast, lunch and dinner. And if we have a world-wide depression, just think of it as support for your new Atkins Diet and work-out regimen," said Jones.  "In a year you'll have bulging biceps and the flattest abs in the neighborhood," he concluded.

     Mr. Jones whose patented earthworm pate and dinner spread called Suculmonet  has provided his favorite earthworm recipe which he combines with egg noodles or rice and which he has stockpiled along with powered milk and powdered sour cream should the end come and wipe out his new business. Onions are grown in the garden and mushrooms in Jones' basement. Whole wheat flower is also stockpiled in airtight containers. Margarine is optional..."as is everything else, but the worms," said Jones.


1 c. earthworms
1/2 lg. onion, chopped
1/2 c. water
1 bouillon cube
1 c. yogurt or sour cream
3 tbsp.marjarine (optional)
1/2 c. mushrooms
Whole wheat flour

Wash the earthworms thoroughly and put them in boiling water for three minutes. Pour off water and repeat the boiling process twice. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F. for 15 minutes. Gently roll the worms in flour, brown in butter and add salt to taste. Add chicken or beef bouillon and simmer for 30 minutes. Saute some onions and mushrooms in butter. Add onions and mushrooms to the worms and gently stir. Then stir in sour cream or yogurt. Serve over rice or noodles.
