suck the heads, video update


the other night i watched an interview with quvenzhane wallis
the little girl from the movie beasts of the southern wild being
interviewed by anne whats her name
you know the one that got fired from nbc but they kept her around
for special interviews since they had to keep paying her anyway

quvenshane wallis is a cute now 7 or 8 who is nominated for
an academy award for her role in this movie

but she was showing anne whats her name how to eat crawfish
and tried to get her to suck the heads
she just nonchalantly does it
and yes she convinced anne whats her name to do the same

ive lived in the south almost all my life
ive never had a crawfish boil
but ive done shrimp boils and ive got that eating shrimp down to
a fine art
eating crawfish is different
you do all that work for a little piece of meat
and its a lot of work and mess and it seems like a lot
of wasted crawfish
guess if you suck the heads you get more out of the meal

ive been places a lot where the crawfish was served and i
attempted to eat them but the effort you seemed to have to
put out was not worth it
bring me shrimp please
i got that down

this weekend we visited my med school friend in eastern texas
near the louisiana line
that night they went to a local restaurant that will boil fresh live
crawfish for you with all the fixins
you pick them up fresh out of the pot

pile them on a big platter and start eating them
i looked at that big pile and thought ill starve before i get
enough of those little pieces of tail meat

so i started my method of eating them
my friend said here do it this way its much easier
i am always caution when he teaches me to do things since
we rotated our junior year together and was known to pull
tricks on each other

figured he was going to get me to suck the heads someway and
i wouldnt know i was doing it

so he showed me his way
i was hesitant but once i got started popping those meat tails out
i got in a rhythm and im proud to say that i was the last man standing
and was able to finish all that big stack of crawfish
never ever thought i would do that

and yes im hooked on crawfish now just like i got hooked on shrimp
when my med school friend taught me how to boil them and
peel them and to eat them

and im sorry quvenshane but i looked at those two beady eyes
with those big whiskers and claws and i couldnt
suck the heads
just couldnt do it
