Has Anybody Ever Gotten Fat Eating Crickets?

There's a fairly large divide between a very wealthy woman (who does a tremendous amount of good for  poor people all over the world) being able to deny her kids snack boxes full of crickets and a woman from another culture who isn't so wealthy who hopes that a few crickets here and there will help sustain her children for a while.

My guess is, this anecdote wasn't told in order to make any kind of grand point about nutrition or cultures, but was told solely because it seemed like the best way to get those chubby women in Middle America to buy Us this week (and, really, it's more about website traffic than physical sales of magazines, isn't it?).
