(Associated Press)

RED LAKE FALLS, Minn. – Christopher Ingraham, a Washington Post reporter based in Minnesota, had some trouble Friday with the crickets he purchased to feed the lizard his family adopted for Christmas. 

His social media posts about what happened after he opened the box containing the bulk insect purchase are now the stuff of online legend

Read the hilarious tweets below. Mistakes were indeed made.








Ingraham appears to be following the story intermittently, including sharing the fact that his marriage is still intact. 


And shouting down his haters.
