But in this case they probably did the clam a favor. Imagine the arthritis and bad back you'd have at that age. And can you imagine being that old and trying to get it up? Whoa . . .

In fact, it isn't unthinkable that someone might eat a clam of Ming's age for lunch—ocean quahogs from the North Atlantic are one of the main species used in clam chowder.


Oh, the humanity!!!
