If you're squeamish about eating frog legs, you can now pretend it's because you're environmentally conscious and not just a giant baby who won't try new foods. The United States imports 2,280 metric tons, or 450 million to 1.1 billion frog legs, per year; Europe buys more than twice that number. This is putting frogs on the path to extinction by depleting natural populations and spreading the fatal chytrid fungus. Frogs are a carrier for the fungus, which is responsible for about 100 amphibian extinctions around the world.
That's fine, I can live without them. They just taste like chicken anyways. Really stringy chicken which is a lot of work. Add it to the list of expensive food that's not really that tasty or worth it.
I feel like there's a conspiracy to get the most disgusting foods on the planet passed of as delicacies: "Oh look, my lord, my lady, I have prepared these delicious snails for you, I call it, escargot. They are a delicacy. As well as these fish eggs I pulled from the pond. And here are frogs legs as a delightful side—it's also very delicate. And here, I ground up the gizzards and gross inner parts of a duck for you, it's called a 'pate.' This here is a lovely appetizer known as 'rocky mountain oysters,' they aren't real oysters, but fried testicles, yum! Oh, and then here are some real oysters, which I heard are going to help you get it up! And now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go dine on my low-born commoner-meal of beef, with a side of wholesome vegetables and low-bred commoner dinner rolls and gravy. Enjoy your delicacies!"
