The human who eats every thing.

He offered an oyster, but I declined. Amazing, I've never eaten a raw oyster (and didn't want to start). :o

If it becomes food poisoning by a raw oyster, it will become pain in hell. I seldom like a raw oyster :(

I eat raw fish, in fact I did that day, but I cannot swallow that ugly oyster. ;b So many people love them, though!
