Do Puerto Ricans eat cooked worms?
Do Puerto Ricans eat cooked worms, like a meal worm cooked?
Ohhh, yes, yes we do! They are delicious! But we eat them raw, you know. Cooking stuff is bad for you. Cooking food has been linked to cancer, and a sharp decrease in IQ.
Here, this is me enjoying a plateful just this very morning for breakfast! Umm, yum!
Puerto Ricans also love to eat raw iguana tails, which we hunt by climbing the trees naked (for better purchase, you know), and biting the tails off with our sharp little teeth.
When worms and iguanas are in short supply, we eat dogs and cats and, when nobody is looking, we sometimes eat little helpless babies, specially if we can steal them from a a white tourist that comes from the United States or Europe. The little blond ones are the tastiest!
Ahh, I am sooo glad you asked this important question, and gave me a chance to expound once more about the wonders of Puerto Rican culture! Thank you, thank you!
Gekkosan, I have never heard of eating dogs and cats! - princessjane
Well, why - of course not! These aren't things you hear about, these are things that you experience! Besides, you can't trust everything you hear. Instead, you should trust everything you see on the Internet - specially if I say it!
You see, it all started with the civil riots of 1988, when Puerto Ricans poured into the streets to the slogan "We're mad and we ain't taking it no more!!", due to the stifling work conditions that the US Government had imposed. So the people massively decided to revert to savagery:
Initially it was easy enough to live off the products of the lands and the lush tropical forests
But after a while wild food became more scarce, so we had to resort to other alternatives, such as chihuahua on a bun, and Hamster cocktails:
However, even that wasn't quite enough, so we became organized in tribal groups, and devised complex rituals to prepare for The Hunt (that's me on the far right, with the cap)
We prepared our weapons
And went out for to hunt for the ultimate prey....
They are great: soft and meaty, from a life of idleness and luxury, and they don't struggle too much, since they are used to solving everything by throwing money at it. But we found that those green papers didn't taste so good - so we settled for eating the fat, juicy worms, the soft politicians, and their fuzzy doggies. Yum!
We like to live in quiet, peaceful comfort, in the most ecological manner:
But we are very fashion conscious and we like to dress colorfully and sharply! (That's me in the background).
I hope this has helped somewhat clarify your doubts about the exciting life and culinary tastes and customs of lovely Puerto Rico, ¡La Isla del Encanto!
P.S. Our supplies are running a bit low. Could someone please get in touch with maybe a humanitarian commission from the UN, and let them know that we'd love to have them over for dinner?
Im puerto rican , and have never even heard of cooking worms.
Yummm, bocadillo de politico, ¡cómo me encanta!
They only eat cooked worms when they have time to cook them, otherwise they go with fresh
I love learning about the culture and cuisine of Spanish-speaking people.
This has been a valuable lesson for me. I can't wait to visit Puerto Rico.
