Diet of Worms

Theologians may take issue with the above depiction of the Diet of Worms

My mother, God bless her, decided to cook basmati rice in the water she'd used earlier to cook beets. "Otherwise all those good minerals go to waste!" 

The rice ended up being watery and unpalatable, in addition to its appearance... about which the less said, the better. My dad, not the most finicky of eaters, ate it. 

At the end of the meal, he looked closely and, realizing what had been clear to me from the very beginning of the meal, proclaimed: 

"Hey, it looks like worms!"

Yes... Yes, it does.

Would you eat this rice?
