Eeeeeh! No thanks...I'll pass. Nicely executed, though. Voted

You know they say that unless we get the human population under control we will be forced to eat bugs since there wont be much land left for grazing cattle, personally I try to eat many vegetarian meals per week if I can.

Bugs and worms are delicacy in some region here in my country.
