Slimy, yet Educationally Motivating!

There's a great story on the front page of today's Wall Street Journal. The principal of an elementary school in El Paso promised to eat worms if every grade met reading goals throughout the year. They did, and she did.
On May 21, Ms. Onick stood up in the school cafeteria and ate two 8-inch night crawlers sauteed with mushrooms and onions. The children squealed. Then Assistant Principal Alberto Reyes plucked two worms from a far and ate them raw. "I bit the first one and it squirted all over my mouth," he says. "So the second time, I just swallowed."
That's awesome.
