The only good squid. . .
Eat it, PZ!
Come on you two – grow up!
For those of you – like me – who have a hard time following this kind of thing, it’s to do with this: http://scienceblogs.com/pharyngula/2011/06/anti-caturday_post_2.php
Though that is a great hagfish slime video, PZ!
… is a live squid.
stvs – I don’t think I can watch that. I dislike seafood – the thought of watching someone eat a live squid….gag.
Although, the deep-fried cephalopod looks like something I “could” eat with enough lemon, butter, and alcohol.
I made it through the first 30 seconds or so…
I’d have to be hammered (with lots of JD) before doing that. I can’t handle seafood, let alone raw, twitching seafood.
No kidding! I thought I was the last person in America who did not like seafood (except for shrimp. Yummy.) And look at how many of you there are here.
Every year on my birthday, I taste lobster one more time. (I mean, I outgrew my dislike for celery–why not lobster? Or caviar?) Every year, it still tastes like a tire.
Whoever’s cooking that lobster for you is obviously doin it rong.
I test it, every year, at The Palm. They’re doing it rite! And it tastes like a tire!
You need to go to Maine. But then you’ll realize lobster is no good anywhere else. Not a seafood person either, but it’s different when it was in the ocean just a minute ago. And Digby NS for scallops.
I live in Maine. A couple of blocks from the ocean. (Within walking distance of Portland Head Light). You are invited to my house for lobster whenever you want. If you don’t like it then, give up and stick to shrimp.
“You are invited to my house for lobster…”
Is that you plural? Better watch out, or you’ll end up with a crowd on your front lawn… ;-))
Booking my ticket – get your lobster pots out!
tell me about it! i always get “you must not be getting it fresh, or must not be cooked right”. Um…I live in one of the top culinary communities in the world. I just don’t like the sea/fishy hint that permeates anything from the ocean. Actually, I can do shrimp and love a good broiled lobster tail…but fish fish? No thank you. It’s gross to me.
I suppose we can now expect photos of fried cat on PZ’s blog.
You went over to the dark side?!
That’s the good stuff!!! People who like that picture (e.g. me) are strongly pro-cephalopod!
Me, I love squid on the reef or in the fra diavolo, just the same.
Worst thing about choosing cats as the snuggly little furrey cute mascot-totems of your blog website?
Can’t eat ’em.
“Can’t eat ’em.”?
Erm…maybe not in our culture.
your blog website
What will PZ make of this one?
almost clicked ‘play’ and then I saw the TEN-MINUTE label
As with the other video, you only need the first 30 seconds.
At least there are no bone-crunching sounds.
For the record, I did not intend to embed that vid, only to post the text of the url @ youtube.
My apologies; now I know.
(though I’d call it a software problem)
hokay, guess I’ve cluttered this thread sufficiently.
Just because he is not of the superstitious mindset doesn’t mean he doesn’t appreciate being near the top of the food chain.
Not so good! Someone fried it. Looks like greasy onion rings and where’s the burger? The ones my wife and I put in our Paella are pure white except for a little saffron tint.
Agreed! Fried is no way to eat seafood. I also like squid and octopus broiled with garlic.
Tentacled things living in the sea.
They are not incompatible!
Shaw’s on 21 East Hubbard Street in Chicago is where it’s at.
In soviet russia calamari eats you (and your school): http://englishrussia.com/images/abandoned_fantasy/7.jpg
JulieK, thanks for that image!
Cthulhu fhtagn meow
Be careful – he has ink!
Bet he gives you a tentacley embrace next time you meet!
Fried squid is one of my favourite dishes. Best are the small ones which can be eaten, body and arms and all, in one or two bites. The best I’ve tasted are fresh from the Adriatic Sea. This is one reason I’m already looking forward to my next holiday in Croatia.
