Jumping Jesus, this cheese could fly away on its own

Casu Marzu is a sheep’s milk cheese crawling with live fly larva. Extreme foodies chase it down, even though it’s illegal in many countries: apparently the cheese can become toxic after the maggots die, so it has to be eaten while they are still very alive. Oh, and etiquette requires that noshers keep their hands over the cheese as they eat it because the larva can jump! Not for joy.
