At least it’s technically dead. Which is more than I can say for some other oriental seafood dishes:

Gulp! I prefer that the only thing that makes my food move is gravity.

How many of you think eating live clams is strange?

I’d eat live squid. Sounds good.

I prefer that the only thing that moves on my plate is the gravity running off my mashed taytoes..

It’s not enough that food taste good and sustain life.

Now it has to be entertaining.

And Adam and Eve were kicked out of paradise simply for eating one forbidden fruit?

God have mercy on us.

US Spec Ops and SAS were already trained to eat live worms and insects like grasshoppers so it’s nothing new. Like the rest of the squirmies, I prefer my meat top stay dead and BBQ’d.

Clams and oysters are eaten raw in their entirety right when you open them up, this thing is lingering. Raw squid or octopus might be ok, but not biting a piece off while it is alive. I’m not somebody to complain about fresh or raw meat dishes, just not a fan of the animal lingering

It's very difficult to spot the difference between a recently deceased clam and a live one. Even at their most vivacious moments, they're pretty sedentary. So it's easy to forget that the clam you're about to eat is alive.

A dancing octopus on the plate is a whole nuther thing, however.

Almost the reply I was hoping for.

I was hoping you would carp a little. School me some. Shoal me the error of my ways. Hoping you would rise to the bait. And I know I know I know I know I know using ‘live’ bait gets me into trouble. But it works every time.

Tee hee ha ha ah so.
