I love beef jerky, but it's so expensive! And the cheaper stuff is made in Argentina.Not that I have anything against Argentines without means.Currently chewing a couple of pieces of Eclipse Spearmint Gum. Which makes the Folger's coffee taste horrible.
It's nothing like "chewing gum", but if you like fishy fishlike products and jerky, it's delicious.Any good asian import store carries that stuff.Mmmmm.
I can't think of cuttlefish anymore without thinking of Dan Simmon's Ilium's citing of Setebos, many-handed like a cuttlefish...Great book and worth the read.wv - "rocula" an undead Eddie Vetter.
I liked the idea of chewing cuttlefish more than I liked the photo of that which I would be chewing.Treywv=payingus I wish.
"funky fishiness"Just for that phrase alone, thanks for the link!
The cuttlefish is an amazing creature. Similar to it's cousin the octopus, it can change color and texture instantaneously.Please, don't chew the cuttlefish!Cuddle the cuttlefish.
EDH, cuttlefish are amazing! Some people keep them in their aquarium where they are beautiful but temporary guests. They live a year, more or less.Trey
They are the KINGS of camouflage. They can make half their bodies look fierce and the other half look gentle, and at the same time!Great trick when they are floating between their competition and a potential mate.

Delicious! I like the outside, in any number of recipes including this 'candied' or barbequed one; parakeets like the inside cuttlebone.
It would be neat if they could turn this into some sort of toy, like sea monkeys. Chew on gum and out pops live cuttlefish.
its the first of the month and there is a full moon..it must be the cuttlefish.
Professor...we need a West Point thread, please.

Stephen Green/Vodkapundit is drunkblogging this speech live. Something to tie us over until Meade leaves Ann alone enough to post. ;)30,000 US troops. 18 months, the troops will come home...sigh.
The President's pronunciation eccentricities give this speech a surreally comical tenor. It's like Chico Marx speaking with his fake-o Italian accent and nearly as intelligible.

I grew up in Hawaii, where you have a lot of Asian Americans - Japanese, Philippino, Chinese, etc. Asians were the majority in most schools I attended as a kid - and Asian snacks were very popular among all of us. Including dried cuttlefish, which was always thought of as a treat among us 5th graders!We wouldn't buy it prepackaged like that, though. Instead, you go to your neighborhood "crackseed" store. Inside you'll find a sweet old Okinawan grandmother type, or old Japanese grandfather type who loved kids (we smelled like money to them) and you'd buy it by the pound out of great big glass jars. The different jars would go almost up to the ceiling, with cuttlefish, rock salt plums, li hing mui, salted and dried mango, and more sweet, sour and salty goodness than you could shake a stick at.More info here. Soooooo onolicious, brah!!!!!!
