Great Headline: “Five Ways to Cook a Cricket”

In an interview during her recent Journey To Cambodia video for Louis Vuitton, Angelina Jolie talks about how her boys “love to eat crickets.”

“It’s their favorite thing,” she said. “They ate them like Doritos. As soon as we landed (in Cambodia) we had a friend bring us two to-go boxes full of crickets, and we all sat in the car eating them.”

This globe-trotting family has it right — crickets are good eating.

Watch for low flying aircraft cows

Safety officer Robert, of Barlaston, Staffs, said: “I was driving along when a cow jumped out and landed on my bonnet.

“It had hurdled a three-foot high fence and hit the front of my car.

“I had no time to brake and my car veered to the other side of the road.

“I was very lucky that nothing was coming in the opposite direction.

“The police were very nice about everything, although I don’t think they could quite believe it either.

“They breath-tested me which came back negative.”
