For me personally, it would be about 1/10 of an octopus head before I started projectile vomiting.

FTA: "Enraged fishermen threatened to sue the government."

For trying to protect the people from the poison you are selling them? I'd think that this kind of irrational anti-gov't can only come from the US.

Intense repulsion would be expected if anyone mentioned the word "head" to my wife...

This. The govt isn't in any way restricting their business, only notifying the public of the health risks and what should be considered safe. OMG OUTRAGE!

I love octopus and I intend to try the live tentacles when I go there, but the head? No sankyou.

At the Super H Mart they sell about 20 whole baby octopi in sesame oil for around $3. I eat that shiat all the time. And I ain't got no drain bamage... or whatever.

My wife and I love octopus. She gives me head, and I give her tentacles.

Octopus head? Don't they have razor sharp beaks? Horrible idea on account of that. Hand job maybe, but never head.
 
2010-10-22 11:43:49 AM
Well, I saw Spenny have one hell of trip after wearing one on his head.
 
2010-10-22 11:44:51 AM
I pinch off the tentacles and eat 'em, then freeze the heads and use them for ice cubes in the drinks at my cocktail parties.

Did I mention that I hate giving cocktail parties?

What a Korean eating octopus heads may look like.

Yeah, they eat them whole...alive. As the smart little buggers try (but fail) to squirm away.

It's some kind of right of passage type thing to some martial arts schools so I've read. In the vid I posted it looks like they are pulling the suction cups off. Seen plenty where they literally just grab and eat without any prep and have seen quite a few have theirs get caught in their throats.

/seriously, how long have we known about the tuna/mercury thing?
//I'm in my late 20s, and i was told that as a kid
///can't eat canned tuna, anyway, it's like barf and catfood in one convenient can.

Answer from the article: 2. 2 octopus heads. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha! (shakes sheet of tin)

Because they have too much cadmium, a heavy metal in them.

I think I'll stick to tentacles, thank you. Hopefully they have less cadmium in them, I don't believe in aphrodisiacs and the odd piece of octopus sushi that I eat from time to time isn't going to kill me and is not nearly as disgusting as any animal's head.

Fun Fact: Cadmium yellow was a popular paint with the Fauves and impressionists such as Vincent Van Gogh, who may have been poisoned by it.

Fauve means a wild beast and the colour of a wild beast--brownish yellow. It was, a Terry Pratchett would say, a pune.

Hmm:
Odd body part of already exotic animal? check
Asian Culture? Check.

I'm gonna take a flyer and say that this primarly consumed because it is a folk medicine aphrodisiac

RTFA:
Yep. thought so.

BlackCat23: can't eat canned tuna, anyway, it's like barf and catfood in one convenient can

Look for the Starkist tuna packed in Olive Oil. Walmart has it sometimes. It's yummy, like barf and catfood packed in olive oil.
