So YOU'RE the one who spread them to Bridgeport!!!! Expect a knock on your door from the EPA.(just kidding)
Sounds like they are really gross.
No, Not me Bro! I just happened to come across them, but I killed them all :-)
I'm glad I installed a fresh water wash down on the bow, because those buggers made a huge mess!

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.

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 just eat them straight off of the bush.. I cannot wait for them to cook.. I hear they are growing like crazy on the Connecticut shore. I wish they grew here. Dayum.. I am going to get me a large sack, and go gather a few for this weekend's church meeting. SHHH.... Or there will not be enough for us...

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!

He is just mad because he ate a CRUNCHY SEA SQUIRT.. I find that if you remove their eyes first, then they are not as crunchy to eat. Sam might want to try removing the eyes first before he eats one.. That is how I got started.. SLOOOWLY.. Then you develop an irrisistable taste for them. They are a MUST on morning PANCAKES..

'Do they grow on vines or are they in trees..?? The ripe ones are the best. Kinda like PERSIMMONS.. But less crucnchy. Sorry this got out. You all will be swamped with tourists now wanting to try this new delicasy...

Eating too many of them though, will give you the squirts. Better pack a bundle of PEPTOS if you plan to have a party on them.. I try to hide them from my WIFEY but she sniffs them out every time..
