Well here’s an interesting dichotomy.

Weeks after a hilarious video hit of her freaking out over a snake during a press interview, Salma Hayek revealed to David Letterman that she loves to eat bugs.

The actress, who is currently promoting her new film GrownUps, says that she loves the eggs of ants with a little guacamole, as well as the smoky flavor of “little grasshoppers”.

I think I just threw up in my mouth a bit.

    Not surprising. Anyone who has watched Zimmern and/or Bourdain knows that a very large number of hispanics dine on bugs, larvae, etc. As numerous as bugs are in tropical countries, it’s actually an environmental service to make them part of your diet.

    Hmmmm, i was born in Costa Rica and lived there for the better part of my life and this is the first time i hear that Latinos eat bugs. As far as Zimmern and Bourdain, they are always looking for people who eat “different” stuff because it would be boring to show people who eat rice and beans.

    While i am not negating the possibility that in some countries diets that include bugs exist (like Vietnam and Cambodia,) i am surprised to hear that people think Mexicans and people below that country eat bugs as an “environmental service.” Isn’t that what bats, birds, ant eaters, and other animals are for? They feed on bugs.
