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.
Good luck with that... you're trying to be reasonable as you are a newcomer. You'll see!

I'm not sweet. I post my fair share of racist crap, but I try to be good. The extreme anti-Obama folks won't admit that, though.

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!
Nor do I have anything against them but their culinary preferences rather turn me off. To each their own is my motto.

You been insulting me and my friends for many years and you won't stop because you have serious mental problems. You have no friends here. You never met anybody on Bridgeport forum because you do not like anybody. I have many friends here that I had met in person; BPT., LynneB, and Phyllis, Chris in Bridgeport. Get lost, Loser.
