    No, see, if you OWN the locusts you are responsible for the damage they do. The farmers would SUE you. Besides, they would probably STEAL your locusts while they lay gorged on their fields. The other kind of bankruptcy would quickly loom.

    One day they will be starving and will eat them raw.

    Hey, keep this quiet, or GOPers will write it into the farm bill and there will be new Big-Ag welfare to deal with.

    I don’t know if you’ve ever tried those tiny dried fish that are served as snacks in Japan, but like that. In North Africa, they roast the locusts and season them with salt. The texture is crunchy but kind of fibrous. I had to close my eyes while trying them. I’ve eaten a lot of weird things, but it’s hard to get over the fact you’re eating bugs. With eyes and legs intact.

    Just watched a great documentary about how eating bugs is a great untapped (in the west) source of protein. Probably only available in the UK, but worth tracking down.. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p01599yk/Can_Eating_Insects_Save_the_World/
