Just a little to our north, a gradeschool principal has been encouraging reading in his students for 14 years -- by offering self-deprecating events if they reach their goal. This year: eating fried worms if the students read a combined 2.5 million pages. The goal was met, so the principal donned his finest attire and ate his promised meal. Note to take away from this article: earthworms, fried in white pepper and salt, seasoned with sesame oil and Thai sauce, aren't too bad -- but I'd bet my unwashed socks would taste good, fried and coated with Thai sauce.
