Hmmm... Let 'Em Eat Bugs?
This article just begs for some kind of flippant commentary:|
At least he didn't say that they taste a little like chicken! The article goes on to discuss several aspects of 'bug eating', ranging from the difficulty of getting the poor farmers to harvest them for sale rather than for personal consumption, their (the bugs) tastiness and nutritional value, and that the additional nutrition available from insect consumption allows farmers to avoid pesticides and bio-engineered crops (Greens should like THAT).
Somehow, as culturally indoctrinated as I am, I don't think this would make it past my 'eeeeeewwwwww' filter. But, to paraphrase what someone once said: 'Let them eat bugs'.
We'll leave this subject with another quote from the article:
