— Folks in Durham are spending Saturday getting a lesson in boiling and bastingBUGS!

That's right. It's the Bug Bowl South. The event wouldn't be complete without an appetizer of fried worms. Participants dug in today at the Museum of Life and Science. Following the edible insect demonstration, cockroaches took center stage in the speed buggy pull competition.

A group of hairy tarantulas took time off from the tropics to make an appearance, as well.
