anybody see the Vanity Fair Video? She is getting eccentric in her older age. I suspect Keith has his hands full. :o btw I have always been a fan of Kidman. :roll:

What, you never tried any bugs? I recommend chapulines as a good place to start. :-)

Bugs may be the most nutritious part of what we eat. Anyway, that's what I want to think, since we're eating them anyway.

For instance: In a regular-sized 16-ounce jar of peanut butter, the FDA will allow up to 136 insect fragments and four rodent hairs. Yum!

I have to say, even after checking out google images of Chapulines, I'm not sure about the appeal.

Mmmmm, those pea crabs are delicious! As for that taco.......probably not so much, but i would still try a bite just to make sure. I mean, humans have been toasting grasshoppers with spices for like 3000 years. I feel like we should have stopped eating them by now If they taste terrible.

I was thinking about going to random people and ask them if they have any spare bugs to eat and see their reactions? :lol:
