I feel sick. Japan is forgiven. Why would anyone want to go to this bizarre food festival in Santiago de Anaya, Mexico where rats, worms, rattlesnakes, and armadillos are all on the menu. It gets better: Iguana dishes, rodent stew and worm tacos were also on offer.

The 20-year-old festival is famed for its strange culinary concoctions. I can imagine it would be a bit like a real-life Diagon Alley.

There is even a Tlacuache (a type of rodent) cooking competition.
