SEE, that "scientific research" was legitimate. Now, someone pass me the soy sauce.

Heh, for a second there I thought the one on the right said "Godzilla" ("Gojira": ゴジラ) and then I remembered what "Gojira" means.

/for those who still don't know, it's a portmanteau of "gorilla" ("gorira": ゴリラ) and "whale" ("kujira": クジラ).

Yes, because whale meat is not good and most people won't eat it, so they sell it at a very cheap price to get rid of it without just throwing it away.

Except for a little part of the whale which they sell at a premium price. Still is a losing industry cropped up by the Japanese government. Great business, pick a small part in the whale, throw/sell the rest away. They probably would just pick that part and dump the rest of the whales in the oceans if it wasnt for those pesky cameras pointed at them.

It's kind of sad we kill and eat crap that is smarter than the majority of us on a good day, all because we lucked out with opposable thumbs.

What part specifically is the delicacy? Also, are the Japanese so stupid that they don't realize that heavy metal poisoning is a thing, and that all whale/dolphin meat is ridiculously contaminated with Mercury, methylmercury, Cadmium, and PCBs???

Seriously?  That's the part that is considered a delicacy?  Is it really allegedly that good?  Or is it sort of like the reason rhino horn is considered strong medicine by poachers?  (IE because it is rigid and erect)
