Nope... Tried them once.. That was one too many times. I'll leave them for those of you who enjoy them. You're welcome.

Ate a few buckets of them sitting on the dock, straight off the boat. These things were huge, fresh (alive), and great tasting. Some Corp of Engineer guys using our docks always seemed to have some on hand after a day of dredging.

Would not eat a dead one at a restaurant. No way of knowing where it came from or how long it was dead? Not this guy.

No restaurant would sell dead oysters. Pretty easy to spot would be dried out, and seafood tells you when it's bad with its foul smell.

Seen them split open on ice. Didn't look very fresh or alive to me. Got people breathing on them and stuff, yuck. My brother gave me a jar of shelled oysters once, didn't turn them down to avoid being rude but I wasn't about eating them

I pretty much stopped after eating a bad one. Had digestive issues for a couple of days. Now only eat broiled ones.

Love ‘em.
Also like a good oyster shooter. Raw oyster in a shot glass, fill with vodka and then a drop or two of hot sauce. Bombs away!

When I had Covid last winter, I had raw oysters coming out of my nose by the bushel. 🤣🤣

I'll eat some raw sea boogers, but lately I prefer them steamed lightly. Cracker, drawn butter, lemon....yummm.

I've eaten and enjoyed them, but they kinda gross me out lately. I think I enjoy the horseradish more than the oyster.
