#1 Or at least start serving grilled locust on a stick with a savoury dipping sauce.

I'm thinking deep-fat fried, with a corn meal coating.

#4 "crunches like cockroach"

Seriously, though, there's a mass venue where these things would fit right in. Wing chains. Lord in a gourd... the ads and menus would write themselves. It's time. Generation PJ grew up on Fear Factor and whatnot, right? On NPR yesterday I heard a dude that PJ would call a sissy waxing poetic about hog rectum calamari. I'm talking Obama's speechwriter meets Barry White. The kids can handle it. Bring on the bugs.

#5 Crunchy Locust Recipe

2 liters of veg stock with a dash of tumeric

25 locusts thrown into the boiling stock, whole. Cook for about 3 minutes.

Drain the locusts and let them cool to warm.

Twist off their heads: this will also pull out the black, threadlike viscera.

Remove the wings and small legs.

Make a seasoned flour with 4 tablespoons any flour, 3/4 teaspoon salt, a little pepper and chili powder, a shake of ground coriander, and dried garlic.

Roll the precooked locusts in a beaten whole egg, then roll them in the seasoned flour. Shake excess flour off.

Fry in olive oil for 1 1/2-2 minutes, till color turns golden brown.

Serve with a lemony tahini sauce, or a lemony za’atar pesto.

Crunch! Enjoy!

#6 Have they looked around for a guy named Moses? He might know what they should do.

#7 Maybe they should consider putting a little lamb's blood on their lintels?

That's Snark-of-the-Day in my book!
