Seeing that picture reminds me of the movie "Jaws".

I think we are going to need a bigger gun.

That photo looked convincing, but I found a web site that showed it as fake, neat looking pic though

They are quite tasty. We once had roasted cricket and grasshopper in my high-school SHTF class. That was 38 years ago.

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but my mind really has to make a leap of faith to believe that pic is real.

The amazing thing about that picture is that it was done before photoshop (1937). Good job, too.
