Have seen two octopi in the wild while snorkeling, and fondly remember Paul, the world famous World Cup predictor. Could not imagine eating one of Paul's still squirming cousins.

i always thought i'd be game to try anybody's idea of good food. i was wrong. for survival of the species and for purposes of natural selection, i think it's just not a good idea to have tasty relatives....

There's something a bit too brutal and violent in that first video for it to qualify as dining. You shouldn't have to fight your meal and win so you can swallow it. I can't imagine he can actually taste the octopus. He's not really chewing, he's just swallowing.

I agree completely, Andy.

Looks more like a fight than a meal.

I can only imagine his adrenaline levels, respiration and heart rate are all elevated during this type of meal.

Kind of a "Fight or Flight" thing.

I have only had them after they were cut up (still moving). There is not a lot of flavor.
