Is this the same scientist who discovered that drinking Camel urine cures Coronavirus?

The time has come,' the Walrus said,
To talk of many things:...

This is from 2017.

The North Sea is warming twice as fast as the Atlantic and Pacific, and oysters in particular do not tolerate warmer water. While we may therefore see a future decrease in methane from North Sea oyster flatulence, there is likely to be a huge increase in methane from the warming Arctic Ocean.

Stay tuned for the next exciting planetary killer fart.

It takes a lot of fun out of things when you can't light the farts.

“It wasn’t me!” say the oysters.

Cut One, Pearl One.

The oysters are blaming the mussels.

Oyster poop is a delicacy in snobby restaurants.

Underwater shellfish farts are three words I never thought I'd ever see together.

Snork @ Amoeba !!

Oysters can be so shellfish.

"Pull my Adductor Muscle!"

Oyster Flatulence toured with Pearl Jam

"Shellfish Flatuence" wbagnfarb.

And to think people regard these things as aphrodisiacs.

Once upon a time, I studied oysters. They're nasty as hell, live in polluted waters, are loaded with cholera bacteria, and are nothing but skin and innards anyway (no meat but the adductor muscles that hold the valves closed, and those typically are destroyed by shucking). Why anybody would eat one is beyond me.

Rod,
It must be the condiments -- hot sauce for raw oysters on the half shell, the batter, etc., for oyster po' boys and lord knows what for over-priced oysters Rockefeller

Save the planet.

The science is settled.

Pass the pepper, vinegar and Tabasco, please.
