Fuggin Bizzy: I didn't realize sea cucumbers were endangered.Those things are nasty. My dad was a biologist, so I've seen more than my share of crazy animals, but I can't bring myself to touch sea cucumbers, much less eat them.

Tom_Slick: Fuggin Bizzy: I didn't realize sea cucumbers were endangered.Neither did I, we used to just toss them out of the way when clamming in Maine.

rnatalie: One time we were in a Chinese restaurant with a large party. They had sea cucumber on the menu and we wanted to add it to the order. Over the objections of some of our party, we decided to try it, went something like this...ME: And we'll have an order of sea cucumber.WAITER (putting his hands on his hips): Are you sure you want that?ME: Sure, why do you ask?WAITER: Well, most people order it and decide they don't want it.ME: Why does it taste bad?WAITER: It tastes just fine, it's just that it's ugly.Well it came and he was right, it was ugly. Black and slimy. As near as I can tell, it had no real taste at all but what they describe as a "marvelous texture." Any taste I discerned appears to have come from the sauce it was in.

Lydia_C: T Baggins: Wow, https://www.google.com/search?q=sea+cucumber has some serious variety, all nightmarish.Once again, I wonder what the thought process was for that first person in history to try out some gross/bizarre-looking thing as food.
