    Scallops are mollusks, kind of like an oyster or clam is a mollusk.... definately not vegetarian.

    i thought so. i do not talk to my old friend any more but i can imagine she does eat them. she is a practicing vegan so i assume she'll find out soon if she has not already.
     
  8. Yes. Definately scallops are NOT veggie.

    scallops are animal. but for some reason, non vegan veggies only consider red meat offensive. does eating an animal offend you? you decide for yourself whether it is ok to eat shelfish. dont let any of these other people tell you what to think.

    Heifer whines could be human cries
    Closer comes the screaming knife
    This beautiful creature must die
    This beautiful creature must die
    A death for no reason
    And death for no reason is murder

    And the flesh you so fancifully fry
    Is not succulent, tasty or kind
    Its death for no reason
    And death for no reason is murder

    And the calf that you carve with a smile
    Is murder
    And the turkey you festively slice
    Is murder
    Do you know how animals die ?

    Kitchen aromas arent very homely
    Its not comforting, cheery or kind
    Its sizzling blood and the unholy stench
    Of murder

    Its not natural, normal or kind
    The flesh you so fancifully fry
    The meat in your mouth
    As you savour the flavour
    Of murder

    No, no, no, its murder
    No, no, no, its murder
    Oh ... and who hears when animals cry ?

    hmmm not a scallop mentioned in that post.
    are you advocating the thought that if an animal doesnt scream, it ceases to be meat?

    for the record, my least favorite Morrisey song.

    "Scallops are the family Pectinidae of bivalve molluscs. Like the true oysters (family Ostreidae), they have a central adductor muscle, and thus their shells have a characteristic central scar marking its point of attachment. However, the adductor muscle of scallops is larger and more developed than that of oysters because they are active swimmers and the sole migratory bivalve. Their shell shape tends to be highly regular, recalling the archetypal form of a seashell.

    Scallops may be attached to a substrate by a structure called a byssus, or cemented to their substrate (e.g. Hinnites spp.). They can also be free living. A scallop can swim by rapidly opening and closing its shell. This method of rapidly opening and closing its shell is also a defense technique, protecting it from threats. There is an audible whistling sound upon propulsion that the scallops make."

    Scallops do scream.
