Hell no. I don't much care. I eat honey.I love it

There is some coffee bean or nut that is harvested after some monkey or lemur pops it out.

You ever eat haggis?

And I beg to differ, but caviar, calamari, and tripe are all super-gross! However I'll stick by the bee vomit.
They taste like eggs if kmb says they do. There's nothing gross about the other foods mentioned.

The ones I ate were the cheap canned ones from the supermarket. I think I need to try the fresh gourmet ones before I make judgments about all eatable snails.

The fact is we are animals, and we can only stay alive by eating organic material that is created by other living animals or plants (including the plants and animals themselves). If you can't accept that fact then you're living in a fantasy world.

I enjoy honey but it's high in fructose. Not that there's anything wrong with that in moderation... but a lot of people avoid 'high fructose corn syrup' but will shovel down the honey thinking it's healthier for them. It may well have certain benefits, but my point is... high fructose corn syrup is really not significantly worse for a person than pure sugar.. the ratio of fructose and glucose is similar in all these simple sugars.

Sugar tastes better though.. HFCS is a cheap knockoff so that's why I don't like it.

How is it equivalent to vomit?

There is no equivalency which you need if you are going to apply an animal term to an insect. Honey is made in a separate pouch of the bee, not a stomach that ultimately ends up extracting goodness from it and pooping the rest out the back end - that would be the "equivalent" of the human stomach.

Secondly, its a nutritional foodstuff purposed for....being eaten (by bees, but...). Vomit, in contrast, is involuntarily rejected stomach contents that are otherwise meant to be travelling through the ileum and colon for processing.

Just plainly different things.

Its like saying bee wings are really arms, just dumb.

Now THIS has got to be one of the stupidest things I've ever read. Have you ever seen a cow?
If so, you may have noticed the large mammary glands they have between their hind legs. There are four teats attached made for feeding their young. The calves, or the milking machine, are not extracting sweat from the teats, they are extracting milk. Do you know that human mothers feed their young from their mammary glands as well? Are you under the impression these mothers are expressing sweat into their infants mouths?

I certainly hope this is supposed to be a joke. If so, it wasn't funny enough to come across as one.

To me lobsters look like a giant bug but I get past it. I don't like crab because it's a pain to eat. I'm not a big honey fan.

Learned that years ago but it doesn't bother me. I LOVED peanut butter and honey sandwiches growing up but haven't had that for years since I pretty much gave up bread. Come to think of it I haven't even had honey in years. DD loves to put honey in her chamomile tea.
