Canadian man eats, sleeps, dreams bugs

No votes yet

Passion can take you a long way, as Québec-based entomologist Georges Brossard explains in a BBC interview:

I'm the bug man – a real bug man. I love bugs. I sleep with them, I dream about them. I eat them. I love bugs.

The Montréal Insectarium – founded in 1990 by a 250,000-insect donation from Brossard – attracts over 350,000 visitors each year, and offers annual insect tastings.

This is why you serve them to kids when they're young.

Of course, you also have to explain what bugs not to eat . . .

I read that once. A bit simplistic.

Eating creepy crawlies is not exactly an unusual thing in some places. They make fly burgers, even!

True. A well-known motivational speaker sometimes asks his audience how much someone would have to pay them to eat a bowl of cockroaches. He occasionally gets an audience member who says they'd do it for free because where they come from, cockroaches are considered a delicacy.

Of course it's simplistic, it's a kid's book, read like back in the fourth grade for English class.

Oh... the drama between me and my 4th grade English teacher, one could write a novel on that alone.
