Can of worms

Earthworms are very benificent creatures:
Charles Darwin said "...it may be doubted if there are any other animals which have played such an important part in the history of the world as these lowly organized creatures."

So "Opening a can of worms" is a good thing, it seems.
Earthworms eat up rotting matter and their shit is a wonderful soil nutrient.
Nothing to fear there, I'd say.

    "Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, I'm gonna eat some worms..." That's a song my dad taught me to sing as a kid whenever I was in a bad mood. Does sort of give perspective and cheer one up.

    Can we have some worms? No, seriously. For our compost...

    Why, certainly, little lady!
    I love the wriggly little critters! Apparently they don't taste bad
    either. And they are good for you!
    I'll see if Ican separate some out for you. I'll bring them over when
    I come get the TV stand, if you like.

    Canned worms should definitely be freed.
