Save the Planet - Eat a Bug!

Bug salad
A UN report says that  eating insects could help boost nutrition and reduce greenhouse gases. Can you imagine the filet mignon-eating,champagne-swilling, first class flying UN fat-cat hypocrites tucking into a nutritious meal of creepy-crawlies? Marie Antoinette , if she was alive today would obviously say "let them eat bugs" while tucking into the finest French cuisine. Why does Australia still fund this useless organisation which is an obvious target for Tony Abbott's projected cost-cutting.

Wasps, beetles and other insects are currently "under-utilised" as food for people and livestock, the report says. Insect farming is "one of the many ways to address food and feed security".
"Insects are everywhere and they reproduce quickly, and they have high growth and feed conversion rates and a low environmental footprint," according to the report.

  1. I'm not sure if I'm ready to eat insects for the planet... In compensation, I ride my bicycle everyday to avoid air pollution!
