But the favourite in China is probably....

Cicada on a Stick

An appetizer skewered on a toothpick. Invite the neighbors over, serve them several drinks, then pass around the bugs.

If the drinks are stiff enough and the neighbors not too attentive, they may never notice.

If they do notice, be sure to decline any subsequent invitation to dinner at their house. Revenge can be brutal.
(mostly harmless)

And in case you wondered

This is what it looks like with an mouthwatering alternative in the scorpions - presumably to take the tase away.

I heard canchin complying about the soundless chamber he has to live now. Dragon, contact canchin and make a swap. It will not cost you much, may be only 2 out of these 3 rivers...


Perhaps if I could divert these rivers through the south east of Chengdu then I could get some sleep tonight. One of the rivers is seriously BIG but we are near the top of the building.

Best way to find out is to try it - zglobal told me that.

But if you need a demonstration, hear it is from utube:

Please note that he spits out the tip.

I think a live scorpion is a bit dodgey especially if you have a cut in your mouth or ulcers etc. But I seem to remember that cooking them breaks down the poison which is probably the reason why you can buy them ready cooked in places like WangFuJing night market in Beijing.
