Gotta Watch: Weird foods

Have you ever heard the saying you are what you eat? Well, if you like to sink your teeth into some of the foods in this Gotta Watch, we really hope that saying isn't true. Here are three of our favorite videos about foods that are not for people with a weak stomach. Bon Appetit!

Tacos a pest hazard - A California restaurant owner can no longer serve their most talked-about dish. That's because it's made out of grasshoppers and the health department isn't too thrilled with having bugs in your food. Supposedly they taste just like chicken.

An ice cold scoop of cicadas - Anthony Bourdain, get ready for this one. Nothing says summer like ice cream flavored with cicadas. It may sound a little weird, but you've got to commend the ice cream maker for his creativity.

Not 'wild' about these burgers - In 2010, this Arizona restaurant sparked a lot of controversy when they added lion burgers to their menu.

    Weird foods?
    What are we supposed to say about this article: "oh, Lordy, I sure wouldn't wanna put a grasshopper in my mouth? Ouuuuu–nooo, I couldn't never do thaait? No–ouuuu?"
    If you were starving, lost in the woods, and there were grasshoppers, and you just couldn't bring yourself to eat them, then you should die to benefit the human race: survival of the fittest.
    This silly article, however, is verbal wine and circuses to distract us from really important issues: Economy, Economy, and Economy.
    BTW, it's not Bush's fault.
    It started about a century ago.

    Gotta Watch: me in a bathing suit with my dy_ke friend. Two dy_kes side be side in the sun. I only weigh 196 lbs. At 5'2" that's not too bad.

    Talk about weird foods–maybe Monica Lewinsky started a new fad.
