Jellyfish

There are some that think 'delish'
The octopus and jellyfish
But I think it rather crude
That these creatures pass as food
Even so, some surely think,
The foods I eat odiously stink

    Your verse an appetizer, Served before the main course, You may ask if I liked it, My answer is: Of course!, We in Greece consider octopus (The eight- leg- creature) A delicacy, served boiled, dried or grilled. Grilled the best I think. So much said, so little written. Thank you.

    Thank you Demetrios. You enjoy your octopus and I'll enjoy my tuna.

    a fun rhyme on jellyfish!! In Spain, I was eating a sandwich many years ago that was quite tasty and when I asked what it was, they told me a word I didn't know. I later found out I was eating an octopus sandwich. I was really surprised because I imagined it would taste rubbery but it just tasted like a great fried fish sandwich. But the way they serve it in restaurants looking so gross, YES, I think I would hate that too!! Anyway, I hope you can taste a fried octopus sandwich one day!!

    They are both considered delicacies. If I were Japanese I would probably love both.

    I'm sure glad everyone doesn't share the same taste. There would then be a serious shortage of my favorite foods.

    LOVE IT! And, as I was asked to eat goats eyes at a New Year's celebration in Kenya, I can certainly understand your reluctance! Fun!

    Thank you Victoria. I just wanted to write a poem about the jellyfish and this is what I came up with. I had fun with it.

    Around the Mediterranean, octopus is considered a delicacy. The Hime food company of Japan puts it in cans like sardines and anchovies. I've never heard of anyone eating jellyfish. I don't think I want to try it. Interesting poem.
