Hopefully the shark fin ban will be overturned too. Animals are not above humans.

Anyone who eats veal is a twisted freak.

how about new testing standards for EVOO!

A virginity test for olives?

I only like port from Porto.

Ducks are exepensive as fuckall.

They used to come with the Liver, but I haven't seen so much as a giblet in as long as the foie gras ban has been in effect.

Anyway, this whole foie gras ban illustrates that state "right" can be a bad thing. The effort to restrict abortion is another example. Wingnuts come from both side of the spectrum.

I do like Oyster Rockefeller, a rather rich dish. It should be made with cress and herbs, not spinach. Cream, but not cheese.

But I only eat Kusshi and Skookum oysters.

Force feeding any living thing just so you can gnaw on it's liver is pretty fucked up...

But I don't give a fuck. Sucks to be a duck.

You can order it in San Francisco by saying "Goose Me!", but be sure you use the correct tonality.

I love you! (I hope you are grasping the "correct" tonality.)

You don't like Kumies?

Kumamoto? It's okay. But I prefer something more subtle and cucumber-y. Just a hint of the ocean.

Cigars from Cuba, free cell phones, now foul liver!

Both cigars and oysters have a sexy connotation. :-)

This is how they should sell oysters and cigars:

Oyster: an aphrodisiac that tastes like sex.

Offer her a cigar: a polite way to ask for something else.
