Minecraft should have Stink Bugs, which will look kind of like silverfish, except brown and with some skinny legs. You have a chance of finding a Stink Bug in forests, caves, or villages. Stink Bugs are neutral mobs, so they won't harm you unless you attack them. Stink Bugs won't actually do direct damage, but instead just gives you the nausea effect. Stink Bugs will have a small chance of dropping a Stinky Leg. If you eat a Stinky Leg, you get a new effect called Stench for about 15 seconds. If any entity has the Stench effect, then mobs that are normally hostile to the entity will just be neutral. There are also minor downsides to the Stench effect as well. Taming a mob will be harder, and you can't lure any animals (e.g. normally a cow will follow you if you have wheat in your hand). If you put 2 Stinky Legs and 2 Rotten Flesh into the crafting grid (like shown below), you will craft a pair of Stinky Boots, which have the same amount of armor and durability as regular leather boots, but you will have the Stench effect when you wear the Stinky Boots (much like how you get water breathing from the turtle helmet).

The Stink Bug will be a great addition to Minecraft because
a. It expands onto the nausea effect
b. It adds a great new effect
c. It a neutral mob that has an interesting defense mechanism
