Hah! And, Moses let Pharoe think he was talking to God!

"It is not so much for its beauty that the Sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."

The Desert Locust is a major agricultural pest in Africa, the Middle East and South-West Asia, and swarms are known to make downwind flights over hundreds and thousands of miles between seasonal breeding areas.

In November of 2004, hot seasonal winds known as the Levante, carried swarms of desert locusts from Northwest Africa to Spain’s Canary Islands ( Fuerteventura and Lanzarote).

BBC NEWS | Europe | Swarms of locusts invade Canaries

Locusts rebranded as “Sky Prawns”
BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | Locusts rebranded as 'sky prawns'

Locust Bisque:
Put one gallon of locusts (legs & wings removed), two onions, one clove of garlic and two carrots into a large pot, and fill with water. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for three hours. Process in blender in batches and strain before returning to a clean pot. Add one cup of whipped cream, being sure not to allow it to boil.”

Then what? Vigorously rub it into your scalp to promote hair growth? Use it to lubricate turning blocks? Use it as a teak-rubbing compound? How does it relate to boating?

So much to learn, so little time! (Cowboys don't do bisque)
