Would you? What about beer ramen?
Two bombs wasn't enough.
>>19315656The woodlouse ramen shop's in Taiwan. The beer ramen is in Canada.
Is this creature just handed to you alive as a side dish like in pic? If so then yes. I'll will take my boy home and feed him cheese-its and love him.
>>19315643We eat these guys who look a bit similar in Australia, and let me tell you they are fucking delicious. Got a bag in my freezer right now just waiting to be inhaled.
>>19315643No different from eating shrimp, crabs or lobster.
>>19315681I've got cousins in Perth who've told me how delicious [Moreton?] Bay bugs are, yeah.Never had'em myself, tho.>>19315672What wouldja name it?
If it has legs it's not a worm. Science is wrong. I will not be taking questions.
>>19315691I'd name him Dickcheese the Orangutan.
>>19315713I was thinking Clitmouth von Meepers.
>>19315899>>19315713I like both.
YOU V I L L
>>19315681Looks like Lobster but without claws and more legsTaste like Lobster?
Sea bugs are delicious, all kinds
you vill eat ze bucksyou vill like eet
>>19316069What does lobster taste like? I've never had it.
>>19316234Like monkfish with a firmer texture
>>19316238I don't think it tastes like monkfish at all. Idkytf people keep saying that. Monkfish tastes like flatfish to me (fluke, sole, flounder etc).
>>19316234>>19316238>>19316251lobster tastes like lobster. lol
>>19316234It's basically incomparable to anything, the best description I could give would be "Crab but better but with a more coherent texture and also firm" but that still feels way far away from how it tastes.
>>19316234Claws are the best part>>19316365>crab but betterdepends on the type of crab. Give me King crab legs any day over lobster.
>>19316365I actually strongly prefer crab of most any kind to American/Canadian lobster. I've not had spiny lobster in so long, I don't even remember the taste, but I know that the first time I had American/Canadian lobster (not really a thing where I'm from), I thought it made for a pale imitation of spiny lobster.I've grown to think American/Canadian lobster is a lot like fillet steak/filet mignon in that people who don't know any better like it for its reputation when there are better tasting alternatives, some of which are cheaper.Have you had king crab, for example? Those fuckers have legs as thick as my wrist and taste better than American/Canadian lobster (but are upwards of $30+/lb FROZEN compared to live lobster being a mere $9/lb, lol).
>>19316375>Give me King crab legs any dayWell, yeah, if someone's /giving them away/, I'll take the lot. However, I even like snowcrab more than I do lobster.
>>19315643>>19315689You would think but the few people I've seen cook them say they smell like sewage. They're all bottom feeders but Isopod's diet seems to be particularly foul.
>>19316476I that that stupid fucking bitch shit that I want to kill?
>>19315691They're okay. I prefer the texture and taste of lobster but you get moreton bugs here for a quarter of the price so it's worth it. I'd prefer blue swimmer crab at the same price point
>>19316507You're a literal retard. Enraged speech doesn't translate well to text.You would know that if you weren't ESL, yourself.
>>19316234like a giant shrimp but somehow worseit was literal cheap worthless peasant food until like 60 years ago
King crab is extinct and this is what we get to replace it. Awesome.
>>19316560Literally saw some last week at the supermarket, tho.
>>19316502dumb esl poster.
>>19316535No retard it wasn't cheap peasant food. It was improperly canned and it ended up rotting in the prisons due to this. Fresh lobster was always good and coveted
>>19315643>that beer ramen picwesternized asian women who go to great lengths to mimic the common ameri-canadian basic bitch make me extremely angry
>>19316069tastes similar to lobster, equally as delicious. usually served as part of a seafood platter
>>19316502stupid esl poster.
>>19316069Very similar to lobster. They are much smaller - about the size of a big fat prawn.
>>19316251The texture is similar, but the taste is completely different. Monkfish has been used as a filler for lobster in seafood diahes, but it tatses like you said.
>>19317445What's funny is that in recent years, I've heard of people calling it PoOr MaN's LoBsTeR but it's always always always more expensive than lobster. At least in my area. It's occasionally up to double the price.Not that I care much for lobster, really. It's kind of meh.
>>19316726I just watched that video and of course the woman who came up with it has a Chinese accent.
>>19315689Why are you retarded?
>>19315691He looks like a Maurice.
If bugs looks like the ones from the lion king, I'd be fine with them
>>19315713Richard F. Orange
>>19317495I'd rather not name a pet after the titular character of an E.M. Forster novel, especially not that one.
>>19315666we should drop neutron bombs on every city over 100k population in north america to be honest
>>19316026>>19316212>>19316233The difference between seafood like these and bugs is very clear.Seafood is tasteful and has lots of MEAT.Bugs are 98% chitin and protein, meaning it tastes like shit and has none of the savoury aspect shrimps would have.You guys can keep spamming your shit thinking they're the same but that doesn't make you any less retarded.Fun fact for the actual bug soylent eaters, raising shrimps is sustainable, cheaper and can be done in a cheap aquarium you bought at the store. More so than Schwabb telling you to eat grasshoppers.
>>19317747i liked that book
>>19317796I'm sure you do.A restaurant I liked (before they closed and became a fucking IHOP; city real estate is a cutthroat fucking business) was named after a Forster novel. You can likely guess which one.
>>19315643jap cuisine is massively overrated
>>19315681thats a type slipper lobster, they eat them in the mediteranean,op's animal is a deep sea isopod
>>19315643you mean the Giant Isopod?
>>19315643beer ramen looks bad but I'd try it, trilobyte ramen looks great though
Their only use is, after you get the ice beam in Norfair, to freeze them so you can use them as platforms to go up that long vertical shaft in Brinstar. They are not for making soup.
>>19317789Okay flyover. Then maybe the rest of the world could degenerate into a technological, social and cultural backwater like your home.
>>19319533Don't step on a heroin needle when you walk outside, hog
>>19319533And maybe you'd finally get over your trauma
>>19319533I live in a town of 300 and have fiber 2 gigabit internet and I am walking distance from a butcher and 2 local restaurants, a fire station, a bank, a post office, and a bar.
>>19315689No. They evidently taste awful. That is like saying eating durian fruit is no different than a peach.
>>19315643y'all ain't even into crayfish
>>19319955uuUUUUhhhhhnmMMn WALKABLE LIVING???? THAT'S LIBERAL COMMUNIST GAY PROPAGANDA. NO REFUNDS ON YOUR JAB!
>>19316502found the poo
>>19317789Based. Fuck urbanoids.
>>19320810>>19317789>bombs urban areas>residual radiation from the bombings destroys agriculture for miles and miles around>other countries won't do business with a nation so fucking stupid as to bomb its own cities>no cityslickers or foreigners to buy her agricultural products>destroys her only source of income>enters deep poverty>dies of starvationGreat plan.
>>19316385>go into the frozen section of costco>entire king crabs for like $200-300 yeah its a little pricey
>>19321858don't expect rightoids to have working brains
>>19318627deep sea = deep flavor
>>19316234like bland crab. get yourself crab instead.
>>19316535fresh lobster has been a delicacy in coastal communities of Europe for at least two thousand years. Early New Englanders simply didn't know how to prepare lobster properly, because they had emigrated from inland parts of Europe that didn't have lobster.
>>19321876Never seen whole ones, just the legs. Had it once when I was a kid but I don't remember what I thought of it. Next time I go to the supermarket and see them, I'll buy a pound and a half and see what my family and I think of them.How much does an "entire king crab" even weigh?
>>19321951they can get massive, like 25lb. these were half that weight. the legs & claws are easily the more expensive option. $550 for 10lb.
>>19316476Me on the right
>>19321957Yeah, I just saw that after posting but couldn't find an average weight for a cooked one since gihugic crabs like snow and king are, from what I've seen, always sold cooked and things lose some weight during the cooking process.Still, if it's $550 for a 25lb motherfucker, $30/lb for the legs doesn't seem like such a bad deal, especially considering I can just what I want and not have to worry about freezing 20lbs+ of crab.
>>19321970i'm thinking it was closer to 10-15lb. cheaper because you have to break it up yourself i imagine. didn't really pay attention just passed by, saw the price & thought "holy shitballs, expensive." felt like a poorfag with my little $15 shrimp platter. they also have surf n' turf lobster tails with actual imported wagyu beef... $380 just for two steaks and two tails.
>>19321976It's only up to 15ish lbs, then it's not really worth it. I'll stick to the $30/lb legs at HMart.>wagyuHad a wagyu steak just before the 'demic. Was good, but not so good that I would consider buying it again.>lobster tailsFuck that noise.
>>19321982yeah not really worth it at 15lbs. you won't get much weight in legs at that point. i agree aswell, lobster tails are overrated. wagyu is always nice but for the price it's dumb.
>>19316476You just know
>>19322001The funny thing is that this isn't remotely accurate but >>19321858 absolutely is.
wtf does that thing even taste like? I saw a video a while ago of some nipnong cooking one live over coal and some white dude with him saying that it's big af but not a lot of meat and what meat there is doesn't taste very nice but he didn't go into what it actually tasted like
>>19315643It sure is Summer in this thread.
>>19315643>I will not eat the bugs>I will not live in the pod>lives in parents basement >hot Japanese girl cooks giant lice in ramen and beer
>>19316234Salty milk and coins.
>>19315681I see a merchant.
>>19315643Isopod a cute
>>19315681Facehugger looking motherfucker.
>>19316234It's like chicken with fish sauce
>>19320113All sea bugs taste awful
>>19316535interesting to watch this story distort the as it gets spread and exaggerated by picky-eating autists
