My addiction is rubbing off on coworkers! We sent to lunch yesterday at a Chinese buffet and I'm sitting across from one of my coworkers and notice this tentacled arm sticking out from under her chicken. I asked what is that on your plate? She replied octopus, after I took it and sat back down, I hid it under my chicken so you wouldn't get upset! Turns out they had a whole pan of baby octopuses on the buffet. Where do these come from? Do they come in live? Anyway, became quite a discussion at our luncheon! And she never ate it.
i was just in spain and ate cuttlefish or shark every night and had octopus a few times. cuttlefish are my favorite pets, and my favorite food. it was better because they usually dont have it in the US.
Hi all, have been away but now I'm back! I have had both, being a former squid (navy sailor) I have been all over the pacific, and have had no problem eating anything that comes from the sea. I've always been in the aquarium hobby, but after I began keeping octopus, Harvey, Henry, and Ella, I feel uncomfortable eating our ceph rulers. Any other animal is fair game, except crows. They are just disgusting, kinda taste like chicken that's been marinating in dumpster water.
I had a friend who once picked up a dead pigeon (fresh) after it had killed itself flying into his office window, brought it in, cleaned it, cooked it in the microwave and ate it for lunch. I think he was trying to prove a point about pigeons not being as diseased as everyone says... but the point got somewhat overshadowed by the way he went about it. Don't think he actually suffered any ill after-effects either, although, come to think of it, I haven't heard from him in a while...
