Sea cucumbers are edible! (And so is phlegm.)

Who WOULDN’T want to eat a sea cucumber? I mean, any animal that can breathe through its anus must be delicious!

That’s why folks in Great Britain are thinking about eating more sea cucumbers. (These are animals, not vegetables, by the way.) People in Asia eat sea cucumbers all the time, but less so in the West. 

This may be because of the sea cucumber’s taste. One person describes it as tasting worse “than phlegm, the texture of which it closely resembles.”
