La Cucaracha

La Cucaracha isn’t just the title of a Mexican revolutionary song (or Spanish for cockroach) anymore. It’s also a meal. A UN meeting is currently debating the merits of edible insects.

Now, I’d normally file this under humour were it not for the fact that, well, actually, I’d not mind eating insects (if they turned out to taste any good). They’re a good source of protein, better all round than eating mammals and, who knows, maybe they taste like chicken.
