I have never liked sea food. Well, actually, it would be more accurate to say, I’ve always hated sea food. The very smell… well, ok, I’ll leave it at that.
While I have been known to order a Filet-O-Fish at McDonald’s I’ve been told that doesn’t count. Today we went to downtown Seattle (more pics later) but for now I had to share both some pictures of stuff people actually EAT and my reason for NOT eating it. After all, the Bible says in Deuteronomy 14:9-10
Of all the creatures living in the water, you may eat any that have fins and scales. But anything that does not have fins and scales you may not eat, for you it is unclean.
I don’t see fins and scales on all the images below!! It also says, in 14:21
Do not eat anything you find already dead.
I don’t know about you… but these all look VERY DEAD to me:
Granted, the end of verse 21 does offer some suggestions for what to do with this DEAD stuff, should you come across any:
You may give it to an alien living in any of your towns, and he may eat it, or you may sell it so a foreigner.
I’m not sure how nice it would be to sell this stuff to your friendly neighborhood foreigner, but it is nice to know that if I ever am visited by aliens from another planet, I know how to get them to leave – I’ll just feed them some of this dead stuff, and they will leave and post a sign up there at the Earth Exit, “Skip this planet – the food’s disgusting.”
Seriously, would YOU actually EAT this stuff??
