Green Party

Poor Mr. B. He's trying to be a good food do-bee, having a nice big salad: Central Market fresh organic spring mix! Very fancy. Trouble is, not only was this guy in it, so was his twin brother! Both alive. Very green, just like the salad. Now we are hoping he wasn't a triplet.

Maybe we should have specifically gotten the vegetarian lettuce. Blaaah!!!

How do you get ecoli poisening again?

I think it's from eating fresh vegetables and salad... right? Or mother's milk. One of those. ;-)

These were a couple of very clean and well-fed couple of caterpillars though. They were on a healthy diet, just like we thought we were.

Probably a high protein content in those green fellas. Ewwww!

Those must be valued food items in some cultures.

BBC stole my line.

Dude, you can have my share o' those delicacies as well, eh!

Don't underestimate protein.
Witchetty grub is considered a delicacy among the Aborigines in Australia.
We even tried it.
(Baked, though. Not raw).
Tastes like a nutty omelette...

I have little doubt that the guy was edible, even while still alive, but definitely not vegetarian... hence not on our diet.

I have heard from an Aussie friend that being vegetarian is very un-Australian. Her SO, also Australian, has turned veggie since they've been living here, except last I heard he still ate fish but he was headed in that direction, diet-wise.
