so today i pried open an oyster and their was a bristle worm about 1cm long in it.. i touched the worm with a knife and it moved!! anyone know anything about this? i would have figured the oyster tried to eat the bristle worm but then i saw that the bristle worm was still alive and surprisingly was able to live inside the oyster.

paranoid i had eatten some kind of parasite: i put lime on it to check if it would kill the worm and it did slowly *whew*

that was the weirdest thing ever. anyone ever experience something like this?

yes, but it was a piece of pork, not an oyster

^^ lmao.. like ppl eating crikets and grub worms. 

I'm glad I don't have to chuck my own oysters or I'll never would eat them again after seeing that. Oh well nothing a shot of Tequilla and lime can't kill.
