Talk about wretching for an hour. Too funny.
Those big NC grubs from the swamps of Camp Lejeune were worse, slimy and nasty. Black beetles taste like corn nuts. Grasshoppers are yummy and some ants taste like licorice.
And the big black carpenter ants are like lemon drops.
Look, we whipped the World's ass at the Olympics, we have an effin SUV rolling around on Mars, and now our Flag has a confirmed kill. How great is that?
