You never ate sea squirt? Of course not, they aren't food! Are you out of your ever-lovin' mind or just ignorant? Perhaps you should do a little research to find out what you are talking about.

Just because asians eat it doesn't mean it's fit for human consumption.

Please stop, the person is not a loser, it's a fact that they are not generally fit for human consumption, but not surprisingly, some people in 3rd world countries will eat anything. In fact some people eat ants, and that doesn't exactly make it palatable. On a serious note, these species are potentially damaging to shellfish beds in our region, so if you want to eat them, don't let us stop you.

This comment made me laugh, some cultures will eat just about anything. If you've never seen one, they are truly disgusting creatures.

You'd best hang them up to dry, as they are rather slimey and getting one to hold still might really be an endeavor. Stick to the green stuff, less of a hassle and more rewarding.

I'm glad it made you laugh, I have nothing against asians at all- I just think there are a lot of weird things that asians do. There's even a website called 'weird japan'.
Relieved I don't have to defend my politically incorrect statement!
