I have a funny feeling I've probably had many fried meal worms in my pancakes when I was a kid. Back then they were very common in cereals and flour. I think I lived through it.

I've eaten ants and scorpions. I'll eat most Arthropods that are edible except grubs - that warm, gooey, custard interior just doesn't make it past my texture filter. However, I'm sure if I was hungry the grubs would be on my plate too.

And keep in mind you would be on their plate if they had a chance.

Any kind of roach or worm. Just about anything else is fair game including human meat if necessary for survival.

For me it is more gradations of grey. Like I won't eat deer because I ate too much one time and the gamey thing is stuck in my head. Plus I heard about the deer version of Mad Cow (spread by bad knife cleanliness) that is likely to do bad things to people. So no deer. I eat natural beef only due to fear of Mad Cow disease. I stopped eating chicken at normal places because of the bleach in it.

I eat liver, kidneys but not brain or tongue. I have had tongue once on a dare after a wild Halloween party circa 2005. It was meant to scare and was just a large beef tongue on a platter.

I ate snake, frog and alligator at various times and would again eat all but frog. Had the frog, chocolate covered ants and also turtle as a child-upper middle class thing in Seattle then.

So if I were starving I would eat frog, snake, alligator, guinea pig(popular in Peru) roe, squirrel, fish, possibly cat or dog.

I used to attend Beast Feasts and ate 40 types of fowl including Ostrich, wild hogs and many stuff I cannot recall. I felt a bit sick after and I think it is because the stomach is not made for processing 50 types of animals in one sitting.

Generally i have an iron stomach.

I love fish and eat all kinds but cannot eat Lobster anymore because they are just too cute.

You are probably not going to believe this but I am inclined toward Vegetarianism. I was raised to love all vegetables and my Mom cooked them from fresh often.

Fun question-thanks.

I don't care for liver unless an exceptionally good job of prepping and cooking are done. I draw the line at still squirming critters. Other than that, if it doesn't have a health risk, I'll be game enough to try it.

Dogs and cats. I'll try everything else once. So far grasshopper's not my thing...

Oh, I don't think I can eat spiders if my life depended on it.

I'd eat a human only if I was the only thing available. Like those plane crash survivor soccer kids down south some years ago. But I hope that will never ever happen!!!
