Just reading about May bugs and this was included, made I larf it did.
In the Middle Ages, there was no way of combating pests. People didn’t know how to deal with their situation, so took the may bugs to court in France in 1320. The judge ordered that they must leave within three days. Otherwise, they would be outlaws. Because the may bugs obviously didn’t understand the court’s orders, they were collected and killed. People even made soup from them or sold them as sweetened treats.
