For anyone that's wondering why some of us are having a little fun when a somber tone seems much more appropriate, let me quote Mark Twain.  He expresses my thought process much more eloquently than I ever could.

"One should not bring sympathy to a sick man.  It is always kindly meant, and of course it has to be taken - but it isn't much of an improvement on castor oil.  One who has a sick man's true interests at heart will forbear spoken sympathy, and bring him surreptitious soup and fried oysters and other trifles that the doctor has tabooed.  That is much better than saying, 'O, I am so sorry you are so ill; you look meaner and meaner all the time, poor man; your eyes are turning yellow and your nose looks like a wen; O, if you were to be taken away from us in your present state, how sad we would be; I will make you some weak gruel and send you some tracts."

In your case Rusty, a quart of castor oil might be just the trifle he had in mind.

Thanks Dave, Florida Bob, Fred, Rod, Ron, Marley, Kim, Brad, Roddie, Ken, New222, Matt, Jacob, rsvBob, Eric, Malibu-Steve,... everyone.
Ahem, I'll have my she-crab soup with crostinis and an extra dollop of sherry on the side; and my fried oysters with a dash of red hot sauce and a lemon wedge. Accompanied with a Corona and a couple of 6 ounce bottles of Coke chilled to 32.8° in a silver ice bucket. Also a fresh crisp copy of National Lampoon. And my lucky flying hat.
Yaaazoo! This Site Rocks!

Aw, now, that's East coast stuff. Maybe it's more a Southern delicacy. I thought Luwong Island was close enough for youse guys to be seafood aficionados. Shecrab soup is made with legally harvested female Blue Crabs and their roe. Half&half makes it very rich, and sherry gives it a distinctive flavor. I don't add any more as I implied in my post, I just wrote that for style points, Lol. It's Good stuff! Fried oysters... dredge them in cornmeal, salt&pepper, and fry them till golden brown and crispy. Oh, goodness, I need to go to the beach, Mmmmm mmm m. We catch a lot of Blue Crabs but generally throw back any egg-laden girls. They're dwindling. I see the Mexican construction workers keeping everything they take out of the creeks.

We used to crab off the community pier in Leonardtown Maryland.

Drop a line with a chicken drumstick attached, pull up a blue crab. Repeat about 20 times over a 10 minute period and we had lunch. Some 25 years ago, crabs were prolific there then and maybe still.

Never had an Oyster outside of an Oyster stew. Raw...G.R.O.S.S But that dunked crab eaten chicken drumstick wasn't bad. Kidding about that.

Bob,
As opposed to popular opinion, raw oysters aren't gross.
They're not slimy or slippery, just wet with savory salty water.
And if you look at its edge view, it looks a lot like a vagina. MMMmmm

I feel at the very least an FBI investigation is warranted. Smile I see ladies by the dozen on the march waving placards.

BTW, don't oysters consume what falls to the bottom. Sad

Yeah, they eat whatever lobsters and crabs don't want.

Hey Rusty, I wish all the best with the operation and hope for a speedy recovery. I sincerely admire your perseverance. It's great to see your humor and optimism in this tough situation.

Oysters don't eat other creatures' crap. They are filter feeders, ingesting primarily plankton and microscopic algae from the tidal currents. They don't go anywhere or do anything, just grow into banks and bask in the goodness of the sea. They are a very healthy source of protein, vitamins, and trace minerals. They basically taste like pure clean ocean.
.....So There! You oyster detractors. Fishing

I remember as a kid standing next to my grandfather. There was a 30 gallon galvanized trash can filled to the top with ice and raw oysters. He says to me " Son, go grab me a beer and get yourself one too and join me over here". Here I am, beer in hand eating oysters and my grandmother FLIPS out. I was cracking em open with a pen knife and sucking em down. Great memories.

That's so great. Sounds like you had a pretty cool Grandpa. I bet she laughed about it when you were out of earshot. We often stop for an oyster roast at Nance's in Murrells Inlet, SC. When my son Al was 3 or 4, he was getting his own setup and opening the local tidewater oysters on pace with the adults. The waitresses couldn't believe it.

The tidewater oysters from the inlet where the restaurant grows them are long and slender(shaped by the currents they grow in) with razor sharp edges. Good and salty, also from the inlet waters. Always pop them open at their butt hinge and slide the knife along to cut the muscle holding it to the shell. We've found a lot of pearls over the years. Holley wants to get a box this weekend and roast them in a pan on the grill.

Oh, and Bob, They don't grow on the bottom, they grow on mounds, well above the bottom feeders.

Dave P. wrote:And they're good on saltines with a little hot sauce!
That's good for coaxing people to try them.
Dave, have you ever been to Huntersville? I hope you'll consider coming, even if it's just a Saturday day-trip... hell, I hope I'm coming. Maybe you'll join the Carolina Gang, our annual dues are only $20 bucks.

Dave P and OErod

I would actually like to see an anvil launching event locally.... while Dave is sort of correct not much going on between dove and deer season locally....

OE Rod.... I too would love to have a very large Iron workers anvil in the 60 to 120 LB range...they are horribly expensive and the shipping is killer...my little harbor freight 10Lb versions are NOT really anvils IMO

Being rurla I probably should actually go to yard sales to see if I can find a big assed anvil... or get off ass and put a wanted add locally

As far as oysters go I don't know how you could slurp down that slimy creature.  Good thing I come from the land of beef and cheese.

RE: The Good News, the Bad News, and the Oysters

Post  66 Malibu on Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:05 pm

Over most of my life I've liked to eat fresh oysters any chance I had but that changed in about 2002.
Because of my job, I traveled to most every seacoast city in the Southern U.S. many, many times.
Then on a trip to LA/South MS, there was quite a stir as I recall where one lady died from and another man had half his face eaten off by a flesh eating bacteria after eating raw oysters !!!!
Who knows the environment the shellfish came from, how they were handled before you got them, or a million other variables, even though they were served in reputable restaurants.
I decided to call it quits even though I only ate in the best places....Not worth playing  Russian roulette with dinner !!!!
Still like cooked oysters at special places.....
