On one hand, lobsters are pretty creepy. On the other, they're also pretty tasty. So are fried spiders apparently.

Lobsters do not have venom and hide in large shoes lurking in wait for their owners to place their tender unprotected feet inside and then poisen them with deadly poisen to death! I have large feet, and thus large shoes. You know how many Australian Funnel web spiders you could fit in one of my shoes? ALL OF THEM!

Also, if I ever saw that dog on the street, it would be a crater before I figured out it wasn't actually a spider. Gotta love those anti spider grenades.

1. It's a shrimp
2. No venom
3. No salt water in my shoes usually, and if there were a dripping trail of shrimp footprints leading towards my cavernous shoes, I think i would notice, or if nothign else slip comedicly on the slime trail.

1) A shrimp is nothing more than a tiny lobster.
2) Notice the coloration, it's obviously venomous but nothing lives past the mach speed punch.
3) You say that now, but you'll visit the beach one of these days.

They put it on everything in Japan. It's more abundant and more used than ketchup is in the states.

I wouldn't consider honey to be "bee excrement" except in the most technical sense that bees excrete it. In which case you may as well say that we eat human excrement since I've heard that some infants consume liquids excreted from human females.

Shrimps and lobsters belong to the same suborder (Pleocyemata) of decapod crustaceans, but not the same infraorder. That said, shrimps and lobsters are very similar in appearance, and shellfish all taste the same to me.

Mayo on shrimps is fantastic.

Boil an egg, slice it, and spread the slices on a piece of buttered white bread. Put lots of caridean shrimps (northern prawn) on top and finish it off with mayo, pepper and lemon juice. Love it!

Mantis Shrimp are kinda cool, and they are not all THAT small, they can get up to a foot in length. A friend of mine got one once in a piece of coral he was buying for his tank, luckily he saw it before putting it in his main tank. He kept it in its own tank away from other fish. The species he has doesn't have the "clubs" like in that video but a rather nasty blade like appendage. It is only about 6" but **** is it cool to see it feed.
