No Dave - they're crustaceans. They just look like insects. Come to think of it, I wonder what the person was thinking when he first decided to eat a crab. Had to be a guy, no woman would eat it first.

I don't think I could eat BUGS! The sight of them on the food would already bother me a little.

GF - Yeah. Would would even give them a clue it wasn't a rock?

Cayla - Check out the average percentage of bugs in ground, roasted coffee. (Sorry) (I no longer drink coffee)

I bet the termites are good! Small bugs make nice little crunchies, with not too much of the "gross it's a bug" thing going on. As long as I don't get bug goo, I am OK with bugs.

Another food that had to be "discovered" by a starving person: gizzards! (Which I love).

Good point. I eat them and love them but I would never have eaten them first. AAACCKKK. And good point about them looking like rocks. Who would think oysters could be opened?

And how about squid. Just the sight of them makes me gag, but I love calamari. I just don't want to see them alive. So eating bugs may not be our thing, but there are many cultures in the world that eat them regularly and think nothing of it. We eat animals and birds, they eat bugs.
Thank God I'm in the USA. rofl.

I might eat Daffy, with a bit of orange sauce and some nice sweet potatoes. But Bugs? Naw, I'd never try to eat Bugs. You ever see what he did to the witch, or to Elmer Fudd? I'd be too scared to even try, even if he weren't so cool.

LOL @ Gummi Worms. I myself wouldn't eat bugs. I have a hard enough time eating something a bug landed on ..
