I'll join you, and I'll choke on the Brussels sprouts too.

Well now....That's mighty interestin'! Looks good but I gotta say Mrs Hoot ain't gonna try tentacles anymore. I must say that if was to hook something that looked like that, I would have to smack it with the boat paddle afore I put it in the boat.

Don't fuss if you barf up a spleen or another internal organ. I hope you do have a very good health insurance policy.

While it might be a weird combination, and presented in a way to make a visual impression, I don't think there is anything there that would cause one to barf up anything.

I always wanted to do a turkey with oyster stuffing, I suppose octopus stuffing wouldn't be that weird.

I must politely disagree. Brussels sprouts are mighty good sauteed in bacon grease and served with a moderate drizzle of hot pepper vinegar.

My offer to swap my octopus for your Brussels sprouts still stands anyday.

I can't figure out what the octopus was stuffed with. Hopefully not brussels sprouts. Looks like the whole crab/octo/whatever thing was stuffed up a chicken butt upon closer inspection.

I could envision a chopped shrimp and mixed seafood stuffing in the first octo cavity....And it sure would be purdy with a couple tentacles for garnish.

Yeah, I'd probably eat it too!
Oh, I see. Yuck then

I'll take both off your hands. I'm very partial to octopus and I l-u-r-v-e Brussels spouts. When I cook Christmas dinner I always lightly cook them in the minimum of boiling water and finish them by sautéing them in butter with almonds and a little garlic. They are good with walnuts in place of the almonds, too

My (paternal) grandmother, on the other hand, who only liked baking and thought all other cooking was a chore to be despised, boiled them virtually to a pulp and gallons of water and no butter or seasoning. No wonder so many people don't like them.

Mind you, I didn't like them as a child but Mum always gave me one on my plate and I had to eat it. Now I'm glad she did otherwise I would still think I dislike them and would miss a treat. Yes, I DID say "treat".

Sorry folks. But when it comes to placing something like this on a holiday table, I proudly admit;


I AM A FOOD SNOB!

There is no way I will sit at a table and look at this monstrosity while I am eating my holiday meal!

Ya know, I was getting the munchies, that picture fixed it. I'll have to print it and hang it all around, best appetite killer in the world.
