Has anyone ever seen Iron Chef Octopus battle when they ate Octopus and they had to cook them LIVE?
It was so sad, and funny becuase the octopuses were very srtong and the Iron Chefs were having a hard time cooking them and grabbing them.
I felt super dee duper bad for the octopuses though. They were pretty large too. They had trouble picking them up out of the tanks becuase they were so slimy and slippery and octopuses are usually.
The episode was GREAT, but not the octopus, lol.

Not again!!!

Yuck that sounds like my last post about them doing the same on Amazing Race!!?? What is the big kicker in chopping them up live?? I'm so disgusted to hear it has happened again for entertainment purposes :x
I personally do not find this funny in any way what so ever!!!!

I only found it funny cause the Iron Chefs didn't know how to handle em; properly. But that's it. I never found it funny to kill em'.
That's SAD.

im a fan of the show....i havent seen that episode, but ive seen the clip of them trying to pull them out of the tank, and by no means were they 'wee'.... as for chopping them live im not sure if the effect is for it to still be wriggling when eaten, which i have the feeling was the case in the other thread, or simply freshness which im guessing is the case for iron chef but id have to see the episode to substantiate any of this (how close to serving, etc) as for the killing, i think its pretty safe to say that if its a cooking show, the animal isnt being dispatched for entertainment value...

It was WEIRD.
When they finally chopped the octopuses up tentacles AND mantle, the chopped up tentacles in the pots were still moving.
I think this is becuase octopus have so many nurves in there tentacles more than in it's brain.
They were still alive out of the water for quite some time.
lol.

the thought of eating my favorite sea creature or any seafood makes me want to throw up. i can't even look at an octopus and then want to eat something right after. i never understood how some octopus owners can eat their pet after it dies. that to me is like eating your dog or cat after it dies. i have a feeling i'm going to be a vegetarian sooner or later. :(

Yeah when I was in Africa a guy nailed a octopus with a spear and when I felt him he still sucked my arm.

Weird huh?

i would feel more sad/sorry for the humans than the octopus. for one, remember the animal kingdom can be pretty torturous itself, clean knife cut might not be as bad as being ripped apart..by eels.
mostly, though, I feel a great sadness and pity for anyone that finds no harm in torturing something live. Even iron chef should be praying for himself, for showing no remorse and generally no mercy!
People will always have their 'excuses" as to why it's ok to keep a live, sentient animal in a destitute existence, seems to make ( a supposedly, more evolved, more intelligent) a human feel better about his/her own pitiful existence.
just my $.02
