New Zealand Prime Minister eats maggots to impress Bear Grylls12/4/2012
It was "Hobbit" fever that led to an Elvish edition of the weather in New Zealand and now it seems that well-known delirium, Bear Grylls-syndrome, has resulted in the leader of the country eating maggots in front of a huge crowd. Kiwi Prime Minister John Key joined everyone's favorite bug-munching, urine-quaffing adventurer on stage in Auckland to chow down on some crickets, grubs and maggots. Afterwards, the PM recalled of his maggot portion, "You couldn't bite them fast enough to kill them, so they're wriggling back up, and I had to pull them out from in between my teeth." Hope it pays off next election. [Source]
