Tired of getting stung by scorpions around the village of Agelam, near the Iraqi city of Samara, the farmer decided to turn the tables and give them a taste of their own medicine.
One day, he caught a live scorpion,
put it in his mouth and ate it alive. He actually liked the taste and
he has been snacking on them ever since.
Obviously, he was stung in the
mouth a few times throughout the years, but Ismail says that helped him
develop an immunity to the scorpion venom.
These days, the man is
addicted to his unusual diet, and says he eats at least one scorpion a
day. If he goes three days without consuming a nasty critter he
experiences signs of withdrawal.
