Ok you guys, this is your fault. How could I not post a link to the brief safe after all the discussion about "poop stains" The remarks made by the bloggers are hilarious to boot. http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/18422569-3ee4-431b-ad4f-7cc0ea304bc2/brief-safe-fake-dirty-underwear-safe What's really hilarious is that they were being sold by Sears. Multi will love the site.

Not exactly seafood, although Scott Weiland does resemble a poorly fed eel. Pathetic human being. He has a good voice , but went oh so far out of his way to pretend he's living the rock n' roll life. Addiction is a horrible thing. But Scotty tried really hard to get hooked on heroin, clorox, anything to get attention. I mean, what idiot scores smack and immediately grabs a cop and says "Hey, I just bought some drugs"? And what idiot recently mentions publicly at a show "I started drinking again"? Sounds like someone is badly in need of attention. BoB?

Gandalf: The KU Museum of Natural History has a coelacanth in it's collection; one of the very few in the U.S. I doubt if you could get a sample for taste from them; it would be kinda hard to flush the formaldehyde from the flesh. Best place to look is in the Indian Ocean near Madagascar! Good luck!!

Wait! Did CW say flux was angry with me? . . I was thinkin' more like "enamored"

Roed has a gift.....for winning hearts and minds and influencing people. It is just sometimes it draws fire. I know I've had a couple become enamored with my musings also. Most of 'em ain't round no more no how....

RoeD, what did you do to get Flux angry with you?

Sardines. Not because of taste, but the sheer nutrition and Omega 3 fat that they provide. And because they are a small fish (low on the food chain), they have the slightest amount of mercury and metalic poisons. Watch out for ones packed in cottonseed or vegetable oil tho. Olive oil or water is best.

Seaweed is also good. Again, not for taste. It literally provides hundreds of trace elements that we do not normaly get in our land lubber diet. But it is not to bad actually. Yu can find it in the merc. It is most commonly used as a sushi wrap.

I think Boo has the best answer.

Generally, any fresh sea food is very good and much better then what you get away from the coast.....

Who can choose? Lobster, big ol' scallops, crab, abalone.....

Sentimental favorite: the last meal I ever enjoyed with my dad, about 2 weeks before he died, was Alaskan king crab legs, cooked by my stepmom at their house. Sometimes it's the company that makes the meal unforgettable.

Reticent: Mammatus clouds are called that because they look like mammaries (breasts); the Tetons (also breasts) in Wyoming should be renamed the Mammatus Mountains. Clouds hanging down like stalactites and mountains pointing upward like stalagmites. Those French explorers had quite an imagination.

Back to the subject at hand: Blue crabs (have to be eaten in Maryland) with newspaper, wood mallets, vinegar and of course plenty of Old Bay, lots of time and plenty of beer. They beat the heck out of the other crab interlopers King, Snow, Dugeness. One step upward, soft shell Blue Crabs!

I could eat shrimp every day. I've loved it since I was a kid.

On the other end of the spectrum is oysters. I'm not sure which I hate more, oysters or liver. Can't choke either one of them down.

Do crawfish count as seafood? I love the tails--the hubby loves crack and eat the whole ones. I can't do the suck the brains thing though. Crawfish Alfredo is yummy!

I am not a big fan of sea food. Shrimp is OK. I prefer beef or pork, slowly and properly cooked all day on the smoker.

Growing up poor and in Kansas, seafood was when my grandparents took us to the Brass Rail in Topeka and we had fried shrimp. Or VandeCamp fish sticks.

I adore oysters. Not around here, though. Only in my travels. Gotta have a great dive bar, beer, shucker for good conversation, all the condiments and crackers. Raw or steamed. Pass the hot sauce!!!

Yes, lots of food and drink questions lately. Which is fine, it stimulates lively discussion. Ya see, I think you know who really does like to cook and whatnot. So it is no surprise here....Why is it not raining yet? I could really go for a waffle now.

Scallops were big on the list years ago, but I discovered most commercially packaged scallops were actually shark meat. Hey, if you're gonna serve me shark say so! Still good, but left a feeling of being served horse meat when I asked for steak!

Calamari has become a favorite in recent years although I wouldn't want to make an entire meal of it. I've only eaten it fried, is there other ways of preparing it that anyone can recommend?

The saltwater bug, ocean roach, Lobster of course! If they lived on the prairie and ate other bugs (in their case crab, urchin, starfish) we would probably try to eradicate them.

When friend Debbie (circa age 27) popped an Oreo cookie in her mouth, chewed it up, and chased her preteen nephew through the house with a mouth full saying 'Kiss Me!"..him screaming as he ran to avoid her. She's a goddess in my book.
