| | Cherry shrimp = People food??
We have a visiting post-doc from Japan in our lab. Yesterday, he noticed a shipment of cherry shrimp that I had delivered to work. Immediately the guy recognized them:
Japanese post-doc: "Ahhhh. Cherry shrimp?"
Me: "Yes, that's right. You keep an aquarium?"
Japanese post-doc: "Umm, no." <makes eating gesture>
Me: "You eat Cherry shrimp?"
Japanese post-doc: "Yes! Very good!"
