Entomophagy

Gross.
Crunchy.
Disgusting.
Tasteless.
Nasty.
Coarse.
Foul.
Dry.
Sickening.
Awful.
Uncouth.

All these adjectives sum up my experience today pretty well. To say the least, my Food and Culture class has been studying taboos. Needless to say, bugs were a part of that. Normally I like the food provided in that class and will eat it without gagging. Too bad that couldn't be the case today. I ate a bug...

Crickets are yucky.

Crickets are worse than yucky.

And any attempts to flavor crickets fail miserably.

Crickets are HORRIBLE!

Don't eat them!
