[quote] Even Gabe Mott, who identifies as a vegetarian, has consumed his fair share of basil-flavored palm weevil.

"He's a vegetarian for ethical and ecological reasons, and when he looked at insects, for him it was really not an issue as far as being a source of protein that is ecologically balanced," said Ashour. /quote]

I can see that it is Paleo and even Levitical, but how a vegetarian decides it is okay is a conundrum. =;

Do you really need to farm insects in poor countries?

the ethicist peter singer has written about these issues/my brother is a vegetarian who has decided for a number of reasons it is acceptable to eat fish--life expectations-ability to feel pain-and more

an insect is not a veal calf is not a chimpanzee/so not necessarily cognitive dissonance

an explanation for bucket's jonesing for monkey flesh?
Monkey brains are a controversial foodstuff, often attributed to Chinese cuisine, but also found in that of certain other countries. The practice of eating monkey brains has led to over-hunting in Indonesia, especially due to the belief that eating the monkeys' brain can cure erectile dysfunction.
gorillaman shouldn't be so cavalier about this topic
In Africa, the Anyang tribe of Cameroon practices a tradition in which a new tribal chief would consume the brain of a hunted gorilla while another senior member of the tribe would eat the heart.

Nothing wrong with chimp or a monkey, just don't be inviting Kaz over. And skip the cake, it's bad juju with chimps for some reason.

Vegetarianism has become somewhat vogue and you hear a lot more people identify themselves as "vegetarians...who sometimes eat fish and chicken and eggs and beef". Sort of like the paleo folks who love their cheese and ice cream - both do it to be able to lecture you about how what they eat is superior to what you are putting in your mouth.
