  1. Once I visited an African friend. He was very pleased as he had something special for dinner. And yes, dinner indeed was really nice. After dinner I wanted to put the plates in the kitchen. Guess what I found there. Right, a whole bunch of grasshoppers. I’m like: what is this ??? He responded with a huge grin on his face: well *this* is what you’ve been eating earlier on.

    At first I was like: YIKES. But I have to admit, I did taste really good. Reason I didn’t recognise my food as a collection of grasshoppers was they were wrapped in some kind of dough.
