The 'Robber Crab' is a crustacean that lives on land. How can people eat crabs and lobsters without realizing theyre just insects?

Tastes just like a giant cockroach. Be sure to douse it with plenty of lemon butter

Wikipedia says:

Cultural aspects
This hermit crab with its intimidating size and strength has a special position in the culture of the islanders. The coconut crab is eaten by the Pacific islanders, and is considered a delicacy and an aphrodisiac, with a taste similar to lobster and crabmeat. The most prized parts are the eggs inside the female coconut crab and the fat in the abdomen. Coconut crabs can be cooked in a similar way to lobsters, by boiling or steaming. Different islands also have a variety of recipes, as for example coconut crab cooked in coconut milk.

While the coconut crab itself is not poisonous, it may become poisonous depending on its diet, and cases of coconut crab poisoning have occurred. It is believed that the poison comes from plant toxins, which would explain why some animals are poisonous and others not. It may also be possible that this poison is considered an aphrodisiac, similar to the highly poisonous pufferfish eaten in Japan. However, coconut crabs are not a commercial product and are usually not sold.

That whole story is suggesting that the mere existence of crustaceans implies Creationism. I don't think even God can love something that ugly.

Bugs are tasty... lots of fat in them.

Those big fat grubs they eat in Java taste like gobs of butter.

That's a valid point. For bugs, they taste good. But it's a bit expensive. I mean, they're bugs.
