It's an acquired taste.

RE: Steamed Cockroach anyone?
I'd found the picture, gotten through the first two pages and nobody had posted it. Refreshed the thread and saw that there was a new third page and BAM!

The only insects I've had are ants, spicy, deep fried ants.
I'd have them again. Prawns used to gross me out more and they no longer bother me.

Soulless mutants of muscle and intent. There are billions of us; hardy, smart and dangerous. Shaped by millions of years of death. We are the definitive alpha predator. We build monsters of fire and stone. We bottled the sun. We nailed our god to a stick.

In man's struggle against the world, bet on the man.

Answer: "Oh, I measure mouse hairs in peanut butter and count bug heads in fig paste."

ummmm ... yeah. I used to do that for the USDA. Suffice to say I never saw a single sample that was 100% critter free. You're already eating insects whether you know it or not. Why not make a committment? Entomophagy for the win. Whenever the cicadas come out I round up a harvest. Drooling

I find figs all year long. When I buy them in the winter they're probably from South America somewhere, in which case the figs probably have tarantula brains in them with the outside chance of being laced with cocaine.

Ugg.

Oh. Um. Hahahahahaha.

Actually, I try not to think about religion much so religious jokes fly over my head.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

It is the capital of the Carolina of the North. It is a strange land of wolves who wear red and an international citizenry. There we have insect festivals, food truck rodeos, and artists who, well, you know artists. A thing called IBM lived here and we have a city-sized area in which many work and no one lives.

But, yeah, lots of weird things. Smile

Food truck rodeos.

That is the most American thing I have ever heard of.

Funny thing is, I've eaten bugs but never ate at a food truck.

If you've eaten from a road truck, you've definitely eaten bug. Big Grin
