Sounds like a lot of spam from the haters.
but the locals are definitely off their poi.

A year later there's a knock at the door and the guy opens it and there's a snail on the front step who says, "What the fark was that all about?".

"We drain it, strain it in a colander and go ahead and turn it into a salad," he said. "And in this particular case, one of the snails was lodged in one of the leaves."

he continues "bag it, tag it, sell it to the butcher in the store"

Escargot is motherf*ckin' tasty.  Seriously, get you some!

"Wilfred Murakami" and his wife "Satoko Vanderlund"

The juxtaposition of the very ethnic names makes me laugh.

I enjoy it as well, but if you read the article you'd probably agree that this isn't how you would like it to be served.

Feh, snails are easy to come by on your lettuce. Now, a centimeter long, bright green inchworms (lepidoptera), that's good eatins'.

/served home-made burgers to friends once
//with home grown lettuce

... that friend will probably never forgive me...

Escargot is one of those things that I was terrified to try, but really glad that I did.

Snails and slugs can contain parasites that can attack the nervous system, causing rat lungworm disease.

And you thought regular lungworm disease was bad.

It's a f*cking snail.

Shut the f*ck up.

I know this is difficult for some people, but your food was outside at some point.

Snails happen.

For the existence of snails.

You really hit the snail on the head with that one.

It seems the outrage only occurs when the government spending does not go directly to the person who is outraged

I liked it too but then I realized you drown anything in enough butter and garlic and it will be tasty. I bet it could make poop tasty. Not that I'm testing that.
 
2014-02-07 12:29:04 AM  
They should rebrand it as "land calamari."

I stopped reading at "rat lungworm disease", swore off escargot, and set my brain on fire.

Well not personally I imagine, but I bet you could convince some of your *ahem* more devoted fans to put that to the test.

Anyway, my take on escargot is basically that it is good, but it'd be better if they used a more flavor-absorbant meat.  Don't get me wrong, I'm impressed that snails can taste good, but it's truly nothing special to me, and more importantly chicken tastes better as far as my taste buds care.

Is the problem that I'm a guy? Or is it that I'm from Montana? Maybe you were hoping for a MontanaJeff?

Woke up this morning and found a slug in a pan i washed last night....No idea how it got there...really gross.

I'm amazed they serve real greens from local farmers in the school lunch. All the school salad I remember was clearly bulk-bagged iceberg garbage, with the tiny flecks of carrot and red cabbage..but I guess in Hawaii they're not exactly trucking it in from out of state.

K, getting ready for the Stylistics at the Blaisdel, was done touching up my makeup and not really looking at what I was doing, I reached for the zipper on my makeup bag. A few times I must have grabbed and squeezed that snail, all the while wondering why the zipper wasn't closing. My boyfriend probably thought I was being attacked by the way I was screaming...he called me slugger for a week after "the incident" as we now call it.

I finally, got a day off, and you know what I did? I got up early before Joyce got back in and I went down to the market to do a little shopping, and maybe I was crazy. I walked through the market and instead of getting a nice red steak or even a bit of frying chicken, you know what I did? I hit snake-eyes and walked over to the Oriental section and began filling my basket full of octopi, sea-spiders, snails, seaweed and so forth. The clerk gave me a strange look and began ringing it up.
When Joyce came home that night, I had it all on the table, ready. Cooked seaweed mixed with a dash of sea-spider, and piles of little golden, fried-in-butter snails.
I took her into the kitchen and showed her the stuff on the table.
"I've cooked this in your honor," I said, "in dedication of our love."
"What the hell's that shiat?" she asked.
"Snails."
"Snails?"
"Yes, don't you realize that for many centuries Orientals have thrived upon this and the like? Let us honor them and honor ourselves. It's fried in butter."
Joyce came in and sat down.
I started snapping snails into my mouth.
"God damn, they are good, baby! TRY ONE!"
Joyce reached down and forked one into her mouth while looking at the others on her plate.
I jammed in a big mouthful of delicious seaweed.
"Good, huh, baby?"
She chewed the snail in her mouth.
"Fried in golden butter!"
I picked up a few with my hand, tossed them into my mouth.
"The centuries are on our side, babe. We can't go wrong!"
She finally swallowed hers. Then examined the others on her plate.
"They all have tiny little assholes! It's horrible! Horrible!"
"What's horrible about assholes, baby?"
She held a napkin to her mouth. Got up and ran to the bathroom.
She began vomiting. I hollered in from the kitchen:
"WHAT'S WRONG WITH ASSHOLES, BABY? YOU'VE
GOT AN ASSHOLE, I'VE GOT AN ASSHOLE! YOU GO TO
THE STORE AND BUY A PORTERHOUSE STEAK, THAT
HAD AN ASSHOLE! ASSHOLES COVER THE EARTH! IN
A WAY TREES HAVE ASSHOLES BUT YOU CAN'T FIND
THEM, THEY JUST DROP THEIR LEAVES. YOUR ASSHOLE, MY ASSHOLE, THE WORLD IS FULL OF BILLIONS
OF ASSHOLES. THE PRESIDENT HAS AN ASSHOLE, THE
CARWASH BOY HAS AN ASSHOLE, THE JUDGE AND THE
MURDERER HAVE ASSHOLES ... EVEN PURPLE STICKPIN
HAS AN ASSHOLE!"
"Oh stop it! STOP IT!"
She heaved again. Small town. I opened the bottle of sake and had a drink.

from Post Office by Charles Bukowski. Well worth the read.

First you are satisfying guys on the internet, then you are tapping toes in airport restrooms.  Then comes the evangelicalism.

It's protein.  Swallow it.
