Swap burgers for bugs:

Same here. But that's one heck of a headline, though, isn't it? :)

There are a lot of things in this world that are technically edible ... but I think there are good reasons (and not just cultural ones) why certain things are left behind as societies get more prosperous.

IMO, this includes okra.

In the U.S., we would never be able to do that (swap bugs for burgers) anyway, because our entire insect population is pretty much contaminated with poisons.
