    Is this a new cruel sport? Whatever next: lobster baiting?

    The crab’s last thought: “This is NOT the nautilus I ordered from the fitess store!”

    What’s a word as stupid as turducken for a nautilus with a crab in it? Nauticrab?

    I must be reading too much Polity. My first thought was “Sniper fighting a Prador”.

    Nautili eat crabs, do they? That’s excellent news!

    Do I have to go into the ocean, or can I just shove a few into my ginch?

    That’ll work, but i was looking for stupid. Asking in the wrong community, I expect.

    It’s a bit of an assumption isn’t it? That the nautilus is eating the crab.

    Perhaps they are just close friends. Real close. Not that there’s anything wrong……….

    Do I have to go into the ocean, or can I just shove a few into my ginch?

    you must wear really baggy pants.

    ….

    I’ve eaten crabs, I’ve eaten squid, octopus, lobster, even cuttlefish (*not the poet*)… I wonder if somewhere nautilus are on the menu?

    *runs off to googlesearch*

    ONLY reference I could find:

    is used as a food source by the people on Negros Island, Philippines.

    interesting.

    they are not uncommon within their range, so I find it interesting that given many rarer seafood items end up in popular cuisine, that nautilus appear to have been mostly ignored.

    A fellow crab lover! And it doesn’t even have to take it home from the grocery store, clean it, and separate the meat out from the shell. I’m jealous, especially since Husband doesn’t like crab, so on the rare occasions when I fix it I fix it just for me — and it seems like a lot of work.

    If I told you I really like fast cars, how many of you would view me as a reckless, penis compensating, selfish, asshole?

    Are you doing so in yet another thread about large numbers of people being mowed down by a Porsche driver, because that’s a thing that happens with some regularity?

    I would.
