Favorite bug bites might include sautéed suri (a fat, greasy caterpillar harvested from rotting palm trunks)

What's not to like about greasy bugs that live on rotting organic matter?

Eating insects is the last step before going full Soylent Green.

Oh look, it's yet another "our food supplies are colapsing, so better get used to the idea of eating bugs" articles.

Protip: What we'll eat in the future is NOT the same thing as what we would need to eat tomorrow if we had no food today.

Would you care for an hors d'oeuvre, Dr. Seward or a canape, perhaps?

Also, we're already seeing what happens when we eat the understory of the food chain in the oceans, with large predator species collapsing because we're eating all the sardines and anchovies. It doesn't matter what we eat, there are just so damned many of us that we're bound to screw the system up somehow.

I modestly propose that Soylent Green really is the ideal food of the future.

Hopefully I'll be dead by then. And not for the purposes of becoming a snack cracker. Though I guess if I'm dead I shouldn't care.

I don't know. What do you think?

"handfuls of giant water bugs are relatively easy to rear in close quarters."

I can only hope that every giant water bug farm burns to the ground.

This is Fark. Comments that end with a question mark are an invitation to a beating. Unless one can hide out in the middle of the herd like this thread.

Insects can feed the world. Cows and pigs are the SUVs; bugs are the bicycles.

What the f*c k?

As punishment for this headline, you should all send me photos of your penis. Photos that I'll compile into a mega email, which I'll send to subby as a message of how displeased we are with him. Send penis photos to my username at gmail. No money necessary, I'll do the honorable thing and suffer through all those penis photos simply because I'm such a fantastic person. Penis.

And yet. all you can eat lobster and jumbo shrimp, sounds just wonderful to you, no?

Lots of you have very, very odd 'ick' thresholds. Seriously.

Allow me to translate:

Cows/pigs = more expensive/less abundant/less eco-friendly = SUVs of biosphere
Bugs = FAR less expensive/incredibly abundant/more eco-friendly = bicycles of biosphere
