I WILL NOT LIVE IN A POD AND I WILL NOT EAT BUGS pic.twitter.com/DNDx3C4GQt— peter (@PeterCozy) September 28, 2019
We’ve all seen the jokes about eating bugs, living in pods and being content with a soulless life of consuming the latest products of American capitalism. The liberal establishment really is trying to transform the Millennial generation into literal genderless, polyamorous, deracinated bugmen though.
“Repeat after me: entomophagy.
It’s derived from Greek and Latin: “entomon,” meaning “insect,” and “phagus,” as in “feeding on.”
Some think it’s the future of food.
In 2013, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations released a report declaring the need to swap traditional protein sources for insects to support a sustainable future. The report helped drive an explosion of efforts all dedicated to making mealworms your next meal.
Presenters at a 2018 conference in Georgia, Eating Insects Athens, published papers this month in a special issue of the Annals of the Entomological Society of America. The volume showed how people who study insects scientifically are now spending more time thinking about eating them. …
It wasn’t always that way. Aristotle loved cicadas. Pliny the Elder preferred beetle larvae. …”
If you eat this bug, then you will be as smart as Aristotle. Some people are calling it “the future of food.” It is the hip thing to do. It is good for the planet.
Is it gross? If you think eating insects is gross or sharing your wife with other men is cuckoldry, then you have been conditioned by centuries of “entomophagy-phobia” in your traditional culture. You don’t want to be an entomophagy-phobe, do you?
