Default Centipedes, edible?

In terms of survival, are they safe to eat? I'm just curious as to how they taste like when their pincers and head are discarded. Has anyone tried eating these bugs? How did it go?

Good with tartar sauce and garlic.

Oh, but I'm squeamish just thinking about these creepy crawlies. Now, are you folks just joshing, or have you really eaten a centipede? I don't even like to look at them, let alone touch them.

Go ahead and try some, then post back and tell us how it went...

Don't you dare get into my stash of centipedes. I'm trying to cross them with a chicken to yield more buffalo wings per bird.

I like them pickled


I never met a dog I didn't like. You may not like GUNS, and choose not to own one. You may not like GOD, and choose to exclude him. However, if some one breaks into your home the first two things you will do are, 1) Call someone with a GUN. and 2) PRAY they get there in time.
