Does it bug you?: Worm and cricket lollipops are displayed during a global Pestaurant event sponsored by Ehrlich Pest Control at the Occidental Restaurant in Washington, DC.
Though slightly uncertain, Erin Kolski pronounced the unusual fare on her plate a burger made from ground-up grasshoppers to be surprisingly tasty.

Hers was one of many such plates served up Wednesday by chef Rodney Scruggs, who helped organize an event to promote the culinary possibilities and ecological advantages of feasting on insects.

Grasshoppers taste OK (had’m in Yemen) but there are not that many scorpions and few are as big as grasshoppers.
Besides, catching scorpions are not without its risks.
Libs want us living like impoverished, protein starved primitives. There is plenty of beef, pork and chicken if the feds start allowing grain to be fed to animals rather than requiring its use in destroying cars.
They taste great if you use Scorpion Helper.
Is that what you call Tabasco?
The Yellens, Obamas, Clintons, Streisands and Gateses of the world will continue to dine on the finest foods the planet has to offer.
You darn right I want fries with that!
And extra ketchup...
I’ve eaten grasshopper in survival school. It was okay, would’ve been better with spices. I have heard the chocolate covered ones are quite tasty.
