What kind of insect is that?

Kelly's grandparents live on a farm about an hour east of Lubbock, and that is where we were staying the last few days. While we were there, the girls played very hard outside with Kelly's cousins' kids. One night, Kora and one of the cousins caught a large grasshopper, and brought it inside to show the grownups.

Lauryn got very excited. "Mama, look! A gas-opper!"

Well, that got a laugh from all the aunts, uncles, cousins, and great-grandparents in the room. Then, bolstered by the reaction, Lauryn ran off to the other room to tell Kelly's mom. In a VERY loud voice:

"Gwanny, Gwanny, they got the ass-gopper!"

Needless to say we were all rolling on the floor, crying.
