Dancing Squid Bowl: The Opposite Of Okay
Note: Video disturbing -- dead dancing squid.
This is a short video of a very appetizing looking squid bowl that, when soy sauce is applied, begins to dance. It's disturbing as all f***. Apparently the squid is (possibly) dead though, if that helps you sleep any better at night. Me? I'm vegetarian so I'll sleep like a baby. "Lightly and waking up every couple hours to eat or cry?" You know it!
The basic idea behind the sodium in the soy sauce causing the legs to move has been covered in the comments, but there's still some question as to whether or not it's officially "dead" at the time of serving. The brain is probably still in the body, but a significant part of its nervous system, the giant axon, seems to extend into the mantle, which has been cut. I'm not an expert on squids so I can't really come to a definite conclusion about that.
Oh hellllllllllllllllllllll no. Call me old fashioned, but I don't like my dinner moving around. Lovers, yes. *poking with a stick* HONEY?!
Hit the jump and be disturbed.
Thanks to Janine and robro, who like their squid how they like their Godzilla: still in the ocean.
