HYATTSVILLE, MD - JUNE 04: Pan-fried periodical cicadas are coated in hot sauce as part of the Hot Ones challenge between Mike Rothman and his friends at home on June 04, 2021 in Hyattsville, Maryland. Rothman and friends took the challenge of eating the fried insects with progressively hotter sauces with names like 'Tears of the Sun,' 'Eye of the Scorpion,' and 'Da'Bomb Evolution.' Billions of Magicicada periodical cicadas are emerging from the soil in the eastern United States and Midwest to molt, mate, lay eggs and die after living underground for 17 years.

But I don’t wanna eat bugs!

It’s the next new trend, and it’s gonna be a big money maker.

I knew this was coming.

I know other cultures do it (From article: “2 billion people in 130 countries eat insects regularly”).

But I do not want to eat bugs. No No No No. I wouldn’t even do it for money. (see: Fear Factor).

And if I’m already ingesting them in some form, I don’t want to know about it.
