It is a good point that not all insects are the same, and context is important, in some cultures some six-legged stuff is considered a delicacy, whereas as pointed out if there are live flies around your food you probably don’t want them there. Similarly, I’ll eat chicken in a restaurant, whereas even if I fancied a snack and there were no shops open, I wouldn’t be likely to stand in a local train station with a net catching the foetid, mutilated, filthy station pigeons flying about and get tucked in!
(Incidentally I never have worked out why station pigeons are so terribly mutilated, particularly their feet. It always freaks me out, which is odd becuase I’m pretty happy to deal with injured humans and have done quite a bit of that. I suppose it’s partly that the mutilated pigeons tend to have old, festering wounds, aren’t looking for treatment for them and anyway I have no idea how you treat mutilated pigeon-feet! Still don’t know how they get that way though, I have no doubt their environment causes them illnesses but I suppose they probably also get injured a lot flying about busy stations. Sorry, bit of an odd tangent, must stop doing that. I do this sort of crap in conversation as well by the way. I once had a pretty nasty head injury, and was told by a Neuropsycholgist I met that it’s not unknown for such injuries to result in people being prone to “verbose, rambling tangents” even long after recovery, which sounds about right!)
