I got ill just thinking about eating cockroaches

Same here. Ugg.

Well, the Old Testament mentions that some locusts are kosher.

As part of a 'survival' boy scout campout once, I ate some grasshopper legs. We spent about 24 hours in the Texas bush with nothing to eat except what we could find. It was to hot for the fish to bite in the nearby lake so the only thing we found were grasshappers and ants.

I concluded that the Texas countryside would kill you unless you had a gun to shoot with, which the scout master was unwilling to do for a bunch of 12 year olds. <g>

We all went home hungry. I remember gorging on several bowls of Honeycombs cereal as soon as I got home. <g>
