I was scrolling the New York Post (a very reputable source) as I do every morning when a particular story struck me, directly in my craw. That's a maw, for the East Coasters. Check this out:

Food of the future? EU nations put mealworms on the menu

By The Associated Press

BRUSSELS -- Dried yellow mealworms could soon be hitting supermarket shelves and restaurants across Europe.

The European Union's 27 nations gave the greenlight Tuesday to a proposal to put the Tenebrio molitor beetle's larvae on the market as a “novel food.”


Let's just get this out of the way right now: I will not [meme] the [meme], I will not [meme] in the [meme].

There's something interesting here though. I've spoken about the Babylonian Brotherhood before but it does bare mentioning here again. There is a vast, worldwide, global (even!) conspiracy theory that presupposes the existence of aliens and uses the presupposition to construct a vision of the social elites (the Bilderbergers, the Rothschilds, and that one Polish Freemason guy who was referred to as The Salamander) as a totally unified race of otherworldly, pseudoreptilian creatures.

They can't actually be reptiles, because that would be irreconcilable with the current models of biological evolution, but they might be a previous, ancient race of Earthly inhabitants who have returned after a long period of being absent from Earth to reclaim their former land. I have no clue, I never came up with the theory, some chick named Arizona Wilder did and I'm pretty sure a lot of it has to do with a personal vendetta she held against Jews.

Anyway, to my point:

If the reptilians are lizards, why would a mealworm be considered a 'novel food'?

The simple fact is, when I owned a bearded dragon (a very cool, real lizard who would never engage in any global conspiracy theories), I would have to feed him once every two days or so. His meal selection? Occasionally a mouse, perhaps even a cricket or two. The most common cuisine on my lizard's (Woody) plate? Mealworms.

That's all I've got folks. Was it a hat tip? Big reveal that the elites may not actually be as lizardly as we've thought? Or maybe its just a big mix up, they all really are lizards, and I've totally overthought the message.
