EU invests 3million euros in insect farms

CAN insects be the future for cheap protein, that wonderful thing of the post-War years? The European Union is investing 3 million euros in insect farming, otherwise known as ‘not cleaning the kitchen’ and ‘not bothering to bury pets and grandparents but leaving them in the lader / lounge’:

Insects are a natural food source: They are packed with protein and calcium, low in fat, and offer a cheaper option to farming livestock. Compared to most animals used for food, these cold-blooded creatures spend less energy and nutrients, reproduce faster and in higher quantities, and—if farmed—would emit fewer greenhouse gasses. 

Do locusts fart?

So. Where I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! and Angelina Jolie failed – she told us her son Maddox eats bugs, but we never bought into that celebrity endorsement – can the legislators succeed?
