Our pal Hanan's blog growabrain is a fantastic resource of neat and weird links on all sorts of topics.
Here's one such topic: entomophagy (that's eating insects for us cretins), featuring things like scorpion soup, cockroaches for dinner, Portuguese snail recipe. Yum!

They eat the locusts which they call Desert shrimps
