That's Squidastic!

I grew up by the ocean
and I love seafood.

But I could never get into squid and octopus,

sometimes fried calamari,

but squid and octopus never tasted that good to me.

Still, that doesn't stop me from eating it occasionally.

I've even had cioppino on Pier 39.

What is ciopino?

Pretty much everything that lives in the sea dumped in a tomato soup base ;)

Ate the whole thing.

But even I have my limits.

Like this beauty below that was brought to my attention by writer Angela Scott

Apparently this thing cost about $16 per person 
and though dead it is still fresh enough
that there is a chemical reaction when 
it comes in contact with 

This is so weird!

I will pay for yours if you will order and EAT one
You will be responsible for getting yourself to Japan

I hope you're not reading this on your lunch break.


  1. Are you sure it's dead? Gross! Lol

  2. That is just ALL sorts of wrong going on there.

  3. not lunch, but breakfast, YUCK!
    that's crazy!

  4. Food that moves independently is just WRONG!

  5. This reminds me of that 500 ways to Die episode where the evil father-in-law makes fun of his new son-in-law for not wanting to eat the live squid--but when the father-in-law does, the squid's suckers stick in his throat and suffocate him. I'd say that's squid justice, Jules Verne style.

  6. I'm not sure which is creepier, that it moves, or that I can see its face. Yuck.

  7. Miranda- after I prepped this post, I read somewhere that people are arguing that this is NOT a dead squid and that the soy sauce is acidic and burning it's skin. That makes the video not only cruel but that much grosser.

    I have no idea why I share these things but I do.


  8. Didn't anyone ever tell these people not to play with their food?

  9. I think I had a miniature heart attack. EEK.

  10. Ok, that was both gross and disturbing. It was like trying to escape! -__-

    I can't even handle like lobster where it's just the head but it's so fresh that the whiskers still move from whatever nerves are still firing. Eck. This is like 100000x worse.

    How do you even find this stuff?! Wait, do I want to know?

  11. I think I am nauseous! EEW! YUCK! BARF! BLUH!

    I am a HUGE, and I mean HUGE seafood lover. Not so much for the squid and octopus, but I do like fried calamari as long as it doesn't LOOK like a little squid. That's taking it too far for me.

    I may actually have nightmares from that video. *shiver*

  12. OMG…I actually felt sorry for that squid! Sad thing is, I don't even like seafood! Ewwwww…..

  13. GAH! EW! NO! EW! GAH!

    This reminds me of a horrible video I saw some time ago. What horrible video, you may ask? This one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP-oRwpLFFI&feature=related

    Warning, it's not happy.

  14. That video will haunt my dreams . . .

  15. AWESOME. I believe I will actually be in Japan sometime in the next decade. I will make sure to eat this and let you know.
