Crunchy Big Butts

Caught your attention? Caught mine when I was reading a Discovery news post.

The first loud crackle tastes and feels like popcorn, but by the time the juices spray wildly in your mouth and the filament-like legs slide down your throat, there's no mistaking this toasted ant queen.

Yaa... that just about made me barf... then I read this:

"In France, they're so highly regarded people started calling them the caviar of Santander," said Stephane Le Tirant, curator at the Montreal Insectarium.

Ok... I guess I'm just not 'classy' enough. I can't imagine eating chocolate covered big butt queen ants.
