As a child, once or twice I put my foot into a shoe to hear and feel a nasty crunching sound - squash Parktown Prawn!

In our house my elder brother or father would dispose of nasties like Parktown Prawns into the loo (isn't done anymore). For years as a child I would be paranoid about said nasties crawling out of the loo and jumping up onto my nether regions.

Last year or the year before, my dad put his head onto his pillow while going to sleep, and didn't see the Christmas Beetle on the pillow. The beetle crawled up into his ear. He had to go to the hospital that night to get it removed.
