Laughing Frequently, Photos of Built Stuff Oyster-Shucking-Holder-Thingy Face 15 October 2019 10 October 2019 Pareidolia For every food (Turn, turn, turn) There is a gadget (Turn, turn, turn) And an end for every seafood under Heaven. Maybe not. But there is an oyster-shucking holder thingy, and this one had a face. Say, “Ahhhh.” For What We Got 10 Comments Ralph 20 October 2019 at 11:16 am 6 months ago It easily is the cleanest oyster-shucking-holder-thingy that I’ve seen. I can say this with reasonable confidence because it also is the only such thingy I have seen. Isabel Gibson 20 October 2019 at 12:05 pm 6 months ago Ralph – :-). Me too. Jim Robertson 20 October 2019 at 11:29 am 6 months ago Fully agree with what Ralph said above. That little “invention” I am sure saves many stabbed hands shucking oysters the normal way. Isabel Gibson 20 October 2019 at 12:06 pm 6 months ago Jim R – Yes, some were using a towel to anchor the oysters but this seemed safer to me. Jim Taylor 20 October 2019 at 11:39 am 6 months ago But how does it work? (I once thought I would be an engineer, and I still ask those questions.) Jim T Isabel Gibson 20 October 2019 at 12:09 pm 6 months ago Jim T – You put the oyster in lengthwise, push the top down and clamp your hand around the end. In theory this immobilizes the oyster while you lever the shucking knife into the shell’s crack. Laurna Tallman 20 October 2019 at 12:00 pm 6 months ago Arrrrgh!
