@msolga,
Diner: Waiter? Why is a snow pea walking off my plate carrying a carrot?
Waiter: I told you our produce was extra fresh. Surprised

@tsarstepan,
I don't even eat lobster, and the Spanish word for lobster is remarkably similar to the word for locust

Bugs--an untapped source of protein, in this hemisphere.

Yeah, I'd try a well-cooked well-prepared bug.

Hey, Roger. Lobster is my favorite food. Not in the bug family, but if bugs taste like lobster, I'll be out in Central Park with a net by the end of the week.

@Letty,
Me too - is that considered a bug? I always thought and said I'd try just about anything - except bugs and monkey brains.

@Roberta,
Losters are the best - they are shell fish - isn't snails like that some sort of shell fish?

When sozlet was very little -- signing but not talking yet -- she examined a ladybug closely and then popped it in her mouth. (I dove to intercept, but too late.) She chewed it thoughtfully and then signed "spicy!"

@sozobe,
When I was little (6-10), we'd ride minibikes and motorcycles at my grandparent's farm in Nebraska.

Occasionally, one would swallow a bug.

Some of them were, indeed, spicy, and we called 'em "pepper bugs."

I love escargot

I'd be willing to bet that a bug dipped in garlic butter would be pretty tasty.

I'd certainly join you in that endeavor! We could open a Red Bug franchise and profit as from the venture too.

@tsarstepan,
Oops, sorry tsar. I thought you meant any kind of unusual critter.

I guess we could add three drops of black bugs blood in this bottle and serve it with drewdad's meal
