Weirdest Stuff on the Internet: Canned Insects

It’s Halloween season! With that said, I would like to share with you the most f****d up thing I have seen in a long time. Considering I spend more time looking up weird stuff on the internet than the average person, that says a lot.

And for the person who truly gives zero fucks, dine on some giant hornet larvae:


It’s cool, they’re honey roasted!

If you ever thought you could survive the apocalypse or a plane crash in a remote area and have to survive off the land, put yourself to the test. Me? I’ve already accepted imminent death.
