Lunch time?

Would you eat this?

 Research by scientists at the university showed that insects could provide the best source of protein to meet the needs of a rising population. Currently, 70 percent of agricultural land is used for livestock production.

My human mom has tried crickets. She's hooked on that Bizarre Food show... I think she would definitely try the first one, but she said 'no' on the second one, because it looks like worms. She would be willing to try ants and scorpions though. Go figure!
