Japanese Spearheading UN Bug Agenda, Eating Silkworms, Crickets, Drinking Bug Water

Asians have always eaten bugs.

So this is the “in” for the global warmers.

They’re saying “oh well, faggot, Asians always ate bugs – it’s very normal.”

As if Asian people are “normal”?


On a recent vacation in Tokyo, Takumi Yamamoto opted for a special lunch of cricket curry and silkworm sashimi, washed down with a water bug cider.

The 26-year-old office worker, from the western prefecture of Hyogo, is one of scores of consumers across the world who have taken an interest in entomophagy, or eating insects, as bugs slowly become a more viable food source.

Entomophagy started to be taken seriously globally after the United Nations deemed bugs a sustainable source of protein to feed a global population estimated to swell to 9.7 billion by 2050.

The impact of the livestock industry on climate change, coupled with global food security issues due to extreme weather and conflicts, have also increased the interest in the high-quality, economical nutrition that bugs provide.

While some consumers think eating insects is just gross, Japan has a rich culinary history of insects as food.

Grasshoppers, silkworms, and wasps were traditionally eaten in land-locked regions where meat and fish are scarce, a practice that picked up amid food shortages during and after World War II, said Take-Noko manager Michiko Miura.

“Recently, there have been advances in rearing things like crickets and mealworms for food, so the possibility of using insects as ingredients is really growing,” she added.

Several companies, including national bakery brand Pasco, have sold made cakes and snacks from cricket flour, and processed food maker Nichirei and telecom Nippon Telegraph and Telephone have invested in bug ventures in the past year.

The term “crickets” also started to trend in Japanese media recently after reports the powdered insects were being used in school lunches and snacks.

People used to think this was a joke.

I used to spam “they’re going to force you to eat bugs” long before it became a cuckservative meme.

People thought it was a joke.

I think cuckservatives still think it’s a joke.

It’s not a joke.

Of course, I am joking when I use the “cuckservative” meme. What an old meme. We need a new meme for these people. Maybe we can just call them faggots.
