Deep fried crickets are very crunchy but when you bite through them
their insides squirt out and its horrible so my friend tells me. I can't
bring myself to try a larvae type sqiggey looking bug. I've had deep
fried crabs, shells and all which are really good. Kangaroo is pretty
tasty as well.

>....thought Idi Amin was the epitome of African political leadership

there have been a few rumors in the local media since idi amin dada's
bbc interview that he might be coming back , there was even a rumor that
he had left arabia and was hiding out in mombasa ! if I see him i will
tell yu people first....

>....do stupid things like eat a bug ...

IMO some of these things can actually taste good ,its just a matter of
getting to taste it -  of course it has to be cooked properly not eaten
raw... : )   ,  i have experienced eating stuff like  crocodile (tastes
like a bony fish) ,   ostrich (kinda tough but tasty meat) , zebra ,
(this was apparently a somali  speciality) , camel milk tea (this stinks
but doesnt taste so bad) , common egg-eater snake (pretty tasty - had it
a camping trip) , omlettes from ostrich egg ,   - most of these are
available at some speciality restaurants where the meat comes from farms
which grow the animals for human consumption.  Dont really have
experience in the bug-eating department though...., might taste good ,
yu never know ;

While the US does not have a monopoly on stupidity ... it does seem to
be an overly abundant natural resource.
