I like your sense of humor. But I doubt that's the cause of the bitterness though.

I stay away from the big purple ones, they are very bitter to me. I have found that the purple and white striped ones are less bitter as are the baby eggplants. Our markets always carry a variety. My favorite are the round Rosa Bianca's. They are the size of a softball and very mild. I can't find them in the markets anymore so I grow my own. Keep trying different types, you'll eventually find one to your liking. Good luck.

Salting doesn't remove bitterness, eggplant have a high moisture content so when you salt them it releases the liquid and they will hold their shape better when cooking them... If not they tend to get mushy IMO... I always salt mine before frying for eggplant parm, I find that the final product is much firmer than eggplant not salted...

A woman is like a tea bag, you never no how strong she is until you put her in hot water...
