Celebrity Bug-Eater!

Now it’s Nicole Kidman trying to get normal people to eat bugs. Apparently it finally occurred to the higher-ups that we groundlings aren’t going to eat creepy-crawlies when we never see The Favored Few doing it. So they got Kidman to do it.

Warning: This video is rather disgusting. Unless you’re a brainless movie star.

Sorry, but no thanks! We already know that actors will do anything, absolutely anything. So that’s not impressive. We’re waiting for John Kerry (or Obama or Gore or Hillary Clinton) to scarf down a handful of tent caterpillars. And then we’ll need some kind of proof that it really happened and wasn’t just special effects.

Hey, sunshine! You think it’s so great to eat bugs–go on, you eat ’em! And we can laugh at you for a change.
