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:
