Sea Cucumber and Pearlfish... gross

Watching a BBC documentary, I can not believe where the Pearlfish choses to live... is so gross I won't even post the details

It brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "somebody's trash is somebody else's treasure".

Why not. Have you ever thought of how many animals live in your digestive tract?

Um... I beg to differ. And I'm a maniacally diehard sushi fan. My wife & I are the folks that sushi chefs love to have at their bar, because we let them practice all the weird stuff that nobody else orders.

But sea cucumber tastes like a used sweatsock that's been drizzled in bleach.

All I say is that some research must be done here... you don't wanna go swimming on an area full of Pearlfish...

That's Brazil and you're thinking of the dread Candiru. Just don't pee while you're swimming, and youll be fine. If you *do* pee in the water, best to be wearing tighty whities or a Speedo. Honestly, you'll feel it start to happen and if you have opposeable thumbs you'll be OK. Most of the affected human victims have been blind drunk.

I once ate a sea cucumber. I thought it was a vegetable.

A few days later I saw a Nat Geo documentary and found out what it really is. I almost fainted.

They vomit up their stomach, and leave it behind. The attacker is busy eating the stomach while the sea cucumber escapes. It regrows it's stomach. Ta Da!
