    Making a quick trip to a company office in Guadalajara next week. Anyone ever been to that part of Mexico? We have about 500 associates there and they promise to take me out for some fine mescal con gusano, with the worm!

    They were out of worms and grasshopper, so all I had was the ant eggs. What a bummer.

    What do ant eggs taste like? They look scary. I suppose I would try anything once though (except skydiving).
