Believe me, it's delicious (if you like hot stuff) ;-). FWIW, the Cajuns in Louisiana refer to their local shrimp (crayfish, ecrevisses) as "bugs". Albanian!!?? IIRC one of those "identify this language" websites also said that. But I think that was back in the days when I was using "sh" for /S/ rather than current "ç". ----------------------- BTW a very apt statement:
