Sam Wang eats a bug on CNN

Just a few days before the election, Sam Wang tweeted the following statement of confidence in his predictive abilities:

We all know how that turned out.  As for Wang, he was a man of his word and made good on his promise on live television.  CNN showed it as Pollster eats bug after Trump win.

Poll expert Sam Wang said he would eat a bug if Donald Trump got more than 240 electoral votes. President-elect Donald Trump got 290 electoral votes and Wang held up his end of the deal.
His meal wasn't what I suggested...
Eat a mescal worm. They’re already dead, they’re pickled so the are safe and they taste like booze, and they’re an insect, specifically a caterpillar. I’ve eaten them and they’re OK. If you need any help, take a shot of the mescal first.
...but it fits with the recommendation to eat crickets from Entomophagy: Student Sustainability Video Festival 62.  At least it was nutritious and Wang figured out a way to make it tasty while he was eating crow bugs.
