I have eaten live crickets by accident on occasion. It happens. I have probably accidentally eaten mealworms, waxworms, wax moths, flies (double yuck), and all sorts of things. Most of the time, you don't know it until the insect hits the back of your throat, or you start crunching something when you didn't put anything in your mouth.
Well, there is an entire cricket eating movement afoot. Live crickets are now being used as food for Humans. Why not? They are good for us and they don't taste too badly. I would not reccomend eating them while they are alive because they get a little jumpy.
Here is an interesting article about cricket pasta and eating live crickets.
