    What I want to know is….how the hell did that video get 250k hits in less than 2 days?

    I wasn’t able to comment on the original video but all I was able to think was that that clam is trying to get away from it’s tormentors. It was to leave.

    besides, they should have glued eyes on it.

    Obligatory royal clam cooking show segment from a few years ago:

    This is a cooking show from Québec.  I could attempt to translate for those of you who don’t understand French, but I don’t really think it’s that necessary.

    I’m pretty sure that’s a kitchen table it’s stranded on. Which makes me wonder. Is salt licking clam on the menu there or something?

    Clams may not have big tongues, but they have big feet. ;)

    Well that is terrifying.

    Why would clams lick salt anyway, since they live in the freaking ocean full of saltwater.

  10. Ha! Internet fame. Thank you for answering my question!

  11. Clammy is just sticking its tongue to all the cynic killjoys of the web.

    To be fair, a clam’s foot is structurally more like a tongue than an actual foot.

    For some reason, the first thing that popped into my mind was “i wonder if they ever “bite” their own foot, like i sometimes bite my cheek…”

    I imagine that pure salt would sting the clam. It is a good way to mess up their electrolyte level.

    The clam chowder I had yesterday is writhing in sympathy. That video needed a warning label of some kind…. I think I have a gastropod phobia.

  16. Paul Renault says:

    As kids, we’d call them the peepees.  We’d still eat them, too.

    I have the weirdest boner right now.

    To quote Grayson from last season’s Top Chef…”Jam out with your clam out.”

  19. Feathered Frog says:

    I suspect that bivalve in the second vid is a scallop and NOT a clam.
