It's good that the Rodeo is so close to the largest medical center in the country.

If you're finding bugs and worms on your fairground pizzas, all it means is the carnies skimped on the cheese and couldn't hide them as well as they normally would.

I'm curious about scorpions. They're kinda like land-lobsters, aren't they? And I understand the bigger ones hunt with their claws and tail, and aren't poisonous.

Insects though... I've eaten insects. Would not recommend.

Bacon cotton candy?  Um.  No, thanks anyway.  That much sugar with what is supposed to be sorta salty.  My taste-buds would be all "DOES NOT COMPUTE", and I'd be puking.  Ew.

Actually, a little crunchy.  We were at this bazaar in Beijing (picture something out of an Indiana Jones movie) and in a couple of these booths, they had scorpions, starfish, some sort of meat and some type of bugs on sticks out in front.  On a dare (yes, alcohol was involved) me and a friend from Austria ordered the starfish and scorpions (did I mention the scorpions were still alive...).  They guys takes the to the back, drops them in boiling oil for a minute or 2 and them brings them back.
