Our oyster from Mobile, Alabama, demonstrates the peculiarly American attitude toward violence and sex. Observe.
Fry her and she merely gasps from the heat, fanning herself with a hankie—or washcloth or whatever—and readying her bathbrush.
Stew her and she splashes in her "tub," luxuriating in the bath.
But catch her naked and that's where she finally objects. Violence is perfectly acceptable, all a part of life. But nudity? Horrors!
No, you had probably never cast an oyster in a voyeuristic scenario such as this. That's a gambit reserved for dedicated suicidefoodists, not laypeople.
Beyond the examination of quaint American hang-ups and topsy-turvy priorities, what this shows us is an oyster who would rather be killed and eaten than just about anything else.
