"Aw Shucks"

These oysters were all in the same boat this weekend at the Wellfleet Oyster Festival. How would you feel if someone invaded your home and tore it in half; then placed you on a cold bed of ice exposed to the elements, then someone comes along and lifts you up and puts you on a plate and squeezes lemon juice on your insides , covers you with cold red cocktail sauce and horse radish and then swallows you while you are still alive? Such is the fate of the oyster and thousands of oysters were swallowed over this weekend festival. "Aw shucks", what a way to go. Lucky oysters don't talk much or the screams of these slaughtered oysters would be deafening!
