CALL THE TRAVEL AGENT, HONEY!

We're going on a clam hunt!

Key Quote: A villager, who identified himself as Noh, said one might have to walk for about an hour in the sea to find a good location.

Kids: Hey Mom, what's for dinner tonight?
Mom: Fat, slippery long worms in a bamboo-like shell.
Kids: YAAAAY!

Fat Slippery Long Worms WBAGNFARB

*snooooooort*

*hhhhaaaaaack*

ugh.. gonna puke... can't do it.

See the tree how big it's grown

I like my fat, slippery long worms sauteed in a delicate wine and cream sauce.

clam cocktail anyone ?

Be careful when removing the slippery worms from their bamboo-like shell, or you'll cut the dickens out of your thumb.

Reporter: Need a story...need a story... Ooh, I can write about spending my vacation clamming! Just need to get a name from one of the locals to make it sound like I actually interviewed someone, ha ha! Hey, you! You wanna be famous? What's your name?

Villager: *quizzical expression* No?

Reporter: Ah! Noah?

Villager: *backing away slowly* No...

Reporter: Oh! Great! Thanks, Noh! Hot diggity, that sounds real authentic too!

Wow, that link broke faster than Windows 95!

Sign me up!!!...

I'm as happy as a fat,slippery,long worm in a bamboo like shell..

how come all disgusting/weird food is called a delicacy?

**Ranting Below**

OK, for one of my pet peeves - news orgnaization web pages that DO NOT SAY where they are from - state, country, planet - NOTHING! I finally found it at the very bottom in the copyright. But Malaysia is where the publication is based, not necessarily the origin of the story. And it's not just Malaysian websites, either. Do they expect me to google every news story just to find out where it is occuring?

***Ranting End***

And a final question - Anyone know if "RM8 and RM15 a kg" is a good price for fat, slippery long worms in a bamboo-like shell? I want to do some comparision shopping today at Krogers.

"In other places, people use lime juice to flush out the clams."

I'm inordinately disturbed by that line.

Zaphod,

Honey did you forget to take your medication today???


Zaphod, *snoort* I'll bet you RM5 it is !

Leetie!!! Have you been receiving my thought beams?

As a proud clammer (razors, steamers & geoducks) and consumer of clams, I can assure you, golfwidow, that tartar sauce or a drop of tobasco is much prefered. I hear there is some mixed drink utilizing clams; perhaps that is where the lime juice comes in handy?

Oh, and Bangi, the other phrase to mask weirdness in food is "gamey" which can easily be replaced with "will never be a commercial success."

I'm confused - I thought they used the lime juice to force the clams out of the mud on the sea bed, which didn't make much sense, but since it followed the paragraph about using a modified umbrella handle to "to prick and remove the clams from their hiding holes." it sort of sounded like it.

I guess the "hiding holes" could be their shells?

*pays a heavy price for growing up on the prairie and always living inland*

It's just that "flushing out the clams" sounds so ... icky.

(still inordinately disturbed)

WBLG Time: 12:43 PM.

Lime juice is good on ceviche....

just sayin'

When I think of clams, I don't think of fat, slippery, long worms. I think of monologues. Also, it seems you could flush them out with vinegar and water

"fat, slippery long worms sauteed in a delicate wine and cream sauce"...the cornerstone of any healthy diet

In other places, people use lime juice to flush out the clams.

Sushi?

I envision a massive stack of sawed-off umbrellas and empty lime juice bottles next to this village....

I like to soak the fat, slippery long worms in virgin lime juice for approx. 24hrs. at 45 degrees. Then I remove the FSLW's from the lime juice and put it aside in a frosted tumbler, and take the FSLW's and fling them against the wall. If they stick, they are ready. Then I take the lime juice and make a nice cool blended margarita. Ummm, now that's good eatin'

aaaahhhh fat slippery long worms *drool*

Pogo said she grew up on a prairie. I didn't even know they had those anymore. Or that people actually grew up on them.

But about the clams, anyone who's never had one, does not know what they're missing. They're as God awful and bloody sick as they sound. I would have to compare it to eating fresh dug earthworms, roasted in a vat of pis.

I find that eating raw clams (or oysters) is about as enjoyable as swallowing a gob of snot.

Moe the bartender, I know that recipe. You forgot to mention that if the FSLW's stick to the wall, you then feed them to the python and watch while you sip your margarita

elle, ya doin anything tonight babe?

elle, my sentiments exactly.

I have been clam digging before, it is quite fun.... it is amazing how fast a fslw with it's one cell and no brain can escape from you. I do agree with narf though, like eating a vat of piss.

*listening for Deon's thought beams*

*gasp!* I thought that you Nordic types weren't into that!!!

Back in my single days, my favorite, if not most successful pick-up line, was: "The joy of eating my fat, slippery, long worm is only rivalled by the thrill of waking up alone and a little sticky tomorrow."

There is a reason that musicians refer to playing a bad note as "Dropping a clam"..Or if it was a real bad number, "they left clams all over the stage".

Cbol. I will be coughing lettuce out of my lungs the rest of the day. Well, actually, a turkey sandwich that had lettuce in it--but I didn't want you all to get the wrong impression...

the clams, which look like fat, slippery long worms in a bamboo-like shell ....

oh yummmmy. pass the plate. i want more!

ewww.

I've heard in Georgia, you can get a fat, slippery, long worm wrapped in a beef patty that's deep fried, covered with chili, cheese and onions and served on a hoagie bun.

RM8 to RM15. Hmm. Does that mean the clams fetch real money?

and c'bol, i am now blasting oreo crumbs out of my keyboard with an aerosol duster.

JU

Deon, ix-nay on the oughts-thay.

*repositioning halo*

I guess there isn't much in the way of tourist attractions in Kampung Buntal in Santubong (say that 5 times fast... it's fun!).

However, completely contradicting my fried foods comment yesterday - fried clams are delicious. NOT rolled in ham, pepperoni and cheese, wrapped in a krispy kreme with an egg on top though. Southerners, calm down....

Hunting cows can be fun also.

I'm a virgin here, so be gentle ...
But, I'm thinking RM8 to RM15 measurement, perhaps ???
And Christobol - I am STILL laughing !!

ZAP, I AGREE WITH YOUR RANT. I USUALLY CLICK THE CONTACT US LINK TO FIND THE LOCALE. NOT ON THIS PAGE THOUGH. I'M REALLY INTERESTED IN THE NON WORKING "PURPLE SOFA" LINK - WTF?

IPSWITCH STEAMERS IS ALL I CAN SAY ABOUT CLAMS. *HOMER DROOLING AND GURGLING*

I'm a virgin here, so be gentle ...
But, I'm thinking RM8 to RM15 - measurement, perhaps ???
And Christobol - I am STILL laughing !!

Freddy Fish and Sam Clam were the best of friends, and did everything together. One day, though, both perished in a freak mishap. Freddy Fish went to heaven, and immediately looked around for his best friend. Not finding him, he asked St. Peter where Sam was.

"Sorry, he didn't make it in."
"You mean he's down there?" asked Freddy.
"Yes."
"Well, I want to go see him!"
"This is highly unorthodox," said St. Peter. "I'll ask the big guy."

Moments later St. Peter returned and said: "You can go, but you can only stay for one hour."

"Great!" said Freddy, and grabbed his harp before anyone changed their minds. He went to the elevator, and went down.

When the elevator doors opened, Freddy saw a huge sign: SAM'S DISCOTHEQUE

He went in, and discovered that it was run by his old friend. They sat down and reminisced about old times, and had a few drinks. Time flew by, and when Freddy noticed his watch, he saw that he had
fifteen seconds left to return. He jumped out of his chair, yelled a goodbye to Sam Clam, and raced to the elevator.

The elevator doors opened in heaven with only one second to spare. St. Peter was standing there with a stopwatch. "You just barely made it," said St. Peter.

"I know," panted Freddy, out of breath. "But I have to go back there!"

"What do you mean!?!" asked an incredulous St. Peter.

So Freddy Fish says: "I left my harp in Sam Clam's Disco!"

Wilbotsgirl, sweetie, NEVER announce to this bunch that you are a virgin. Especially after Christobol's long worm comment.

Please strike Wilbotsgil's comments from the record (both of them). Ok - guys go easy on her.

[beams punishing thoughts at Leetie for that]

PETER- Do you HAVE to use all caps?? I have a headache this mornig - at least I said I did last night and that's my story and I'm sticking to it:)

Hi Eleanor.

[Offers medication]

Sometimes high-end techies use all caps for everything they do on a computer. They forget that us mere mortals use both upper and lower case.

Let's not lose sight of the things that truly matter, folks...

Bamboo clams in Kampung Buntal = Monk, nun bump; glom a sabbatical.

TKS DEON, YOU'RE CLOSE. FOR THE PRIMARY APPLICATION I USE YOU HAVE TO USE ALL CAPS. MY 17 GAZILLION PASSWORDS HAVE TO USE CAPS. SO, IF IT DOESN'T BOTHER YOU GUYS TOO MUCH...

WHO HAS THE PADDLE FOR LEETIE?

Well Peter,
I certainly don't need my graduated, multi-focal glasses to read your posts.
I am also sure that visionally challanged HIS DAVENESS will also be able to read it. Perhaps you could moonlight for FOX so FEARLESS LEADER will be able to read the 24HRS synopsis without whinning to the entire Western World.
Other than that, you could probably just push down that Caps Lock thingy when you're not involved in massive projects at the CT
U involving nuclear meltdowns.

ALL RIGHT PETER, I TRULY ADMIRE COMPUTER GEEKS (seriously) AND NOW THAT I KNOW YOU'RE NOT YELLING I CAN LIVE WITH IT!

*takes meds from Deon and immediately falls into a semi-coma*

Ooops. Not all at once, Eleanor.

Sarawak is on the island of Borneo. Its capital is Kuching which is the sound all those cash registers make when all that clam money hits them.

The 'rajahs' of Sarawak were English, members of the Brooke family, I remember an interview with the wife of the last one, she said the primary sport was head-hunting.

So clams may be an improvement.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

*beams clam thoughts at Leetie*

*Quietly dyes Eleanor's hair bright pink and styles it in a modified Barney Rubble, then sneaks off, chuckling*

Sarawak Clam Hunt WBAGNFARB.

Oh my!

wasn't "clam" another name for angry vagina?

Oh, boy, here we go with the vagina detour again...

Commence.

I may've missed something, but I always thought Vinegar was the proper liquid for flushing out one's clam.

*wakes up for "v" detour*

*looks in mirror, sees pink hair*

*not bad*

Almost heaven, West Vagina

*knows she's posted that before, but it makes her giggle every time*

ok D'Art.. but I always thought you refered to them as "bearded clams"... "bamboo clam" just doesn't work for me... but then I'm thinking Dave started the whole innuendo thing with "We're going on a clam hunt!".

commencing clam V detour...

i've got nothing.... i think i have finally run out of vagina monologue......

**grabs pencil and scribbles down vagina one liners.... (virgin...long slimy worm wrapped in beef patty, hummm think I am on to something...

elle and leetie, yea, can I watch ?

moe: Don't MAKE me say "gobs of snot" again....

elle, c'mere, I have some melted butter!

It's 'bout time the infamous Bearded Clam came up.. but the whole Fat, slippery long worms thing is creeping me out.

...Loves Eleanor's fetching new look.. calls stylist for appt.

come on giddy don't be scared of the fslw thingy

it's harmless it won't hurt you

"grabs a fslw and shows to giddy"

Hmm, they're (not there) kinda cute.

EUUUuuuwww, was that a HAIR!

*does the girlie dance*

Calms down from dance..

False alarm: twas a wee bit o' seaweed.

Seaweed? Grabs b*ng..

*grabs cocktail sauce*

ha ha snort snort ha ha ha

*grabs his fat,slippery,long worm*

Now, don't teeze me, Moe, been a long time since I've had a man grab his fat, hard, throbbing..

oh never mind.

(approaching vulgar)

Yes??

ELLE!

[smile and polite nod]

Fat, slippery, long worms and clams would be cute signs on the men's and ladies' rooms at the high class seafood restarant. Instead of bouys and gulls

They prick clams?

Ouch!

*looks at Deon*

*drops melted butter and backs away from Leetie's clam*

*pouts*
