Writer's Block: Breaking the food chain

Which one food would you choose to ban from existence, and why?

Snails.

I just don’t get the whole eating snails idea.

I’m sort of thinking they work better in the garden than on a dinner plate. (But, actually, come to think of it, no one wants them in their garden either.)

And a great big “SORRY” to all my live-journal-escargot-loving friends for banning them from existence.

Perhaps I can offer you calamari instead (although that comes a close second to being banned, as well).

There are several "foods" that I just don't understand. I mean sure if a person is starving and that's all they have it's better than nothing. But why would people choose to eat snails?

It makes you wonder, what first possessed someone to say, "hmm, I'm going to eat a snail"?

That's right. Choosy mothers would never choose snails. They would choose peanut butter.

Ha Ha!! Somehow the thought of keeping snails penned up strikes me as funny. Photobucket

Haha. My grandmother used to grow snails and sell them to restaurants. I still haven't tried 'em.

Calamari is either really delicious or really gross. It all depends on the recipe and who's making it.

I must have gotten a taste of the calamari recipe that wasn't all that delicious.

And very interesting that your grandmother raised snails. Did they ever try to escape?

Haha. There was no chance of the snails escaping. They were locked up in a small shed-sized greenhouse. I was actually exploring her backyard when I was very little and discovered it. I walked in and there were hundreds of snails all over the walls! I was very concerned about this and felt my grandmother should know. That's when they explained escargot to me. I couldn't believe it but I took her word for it. Haha.

Hundreds of snails...sounds like something from the Twilight Zone.

I was very little, maybe three or four years old. I was quite alarmed! Haha.
