Even the horribly unappealing food looks appealing.

the voice-over has nothing at all to do with the video. Rather random. I guess the idea is to listen to it after you've learned the phrases so you can practice recognition of them.

Patty- squid only has tentacles if you leave them attached ^_^

What's wrong with tentacles? Makes it kind of spaghetti-like.

I am a big fan of sushi. I tried baby octopus once. Yes, it was an entire baby octopus sitting on a bed of rice. I had to get over the tentacle thing just to put it in my mouth. It was the most disgusting thing I have ever tried (well almost, I still think beets are 100 times worse). It tasted like the ink sac expolded when I bit into it.

Patty, you've got to whump those tentacles 40 times on the rocks by the shore or they just ain't any good. Honest! I've seen it done thousands of times over here.

I've eaten ol' 8legs but I don't like the texture. Beets, on the other hand, are gooooooooooouuuuuuuddddddd! (think Mulberry)
