When I was young, I was tricked and got one of the smaller ones in my mouth and chewed on it.

A) It DOES NOT taste like chicken,

B) It's like fried brain, without the fried part. It tastes like chewing on your on tenderized snot.

C) Sorry for the mental image. You wanted your ignorance denied. It now is.

That is a scary worm... It must eat fishes...

you didn't bite off the ends and suck out the middle?


i seen them in dishes, in china.

i'd have to be really really drunk to even THINK about eating them. i'm sure they are good, done right.

not enough beer in Qingdao for that, tho.

Came here to make a Dune reference/joke. I see that you boys are on the job already. Good work.

Nobody likes me
everybody hates me
I think I'll go and eat....



What do they taste like? I'll ask my mate Pete, he is from Gippsland and he said something about slicing them in to ringlets and frying them like calamari rings the other day.

People joke but earthworms are an easy and excellent source of protein in survival situations. The thing to remember is to hold them between 2 fingers and squeeze as you pull the body through to force out whatever is in their digestive tract.
Doesn't taste like chicken, tastes like worms is all I can say.
Not horrible tasting and can be covered up with toothwort or some other spicy plant.
But 9 feet long? Egad!

I'm glad I'm a vegan, and when I look at it I see a wonderful living creature. The mindset of "it moves, it's alive, I wonder what it tastes like" directly removes a corpsearian from the experience that vegetarians/vegans have of just appreciating a fellow creature and letting it be.

That said, looking at the worm, I'm glad I'm a vegan! If it tastes like chicken or turkey I'd hate to chow down on the dark meat.

Hey, at least we aren't as bad as this guy:





Louis XIV was king of France for over seventy-two years, the longest reign in European history. He ushered in a new era of power and prosperity for the county and defined the term Absolute Monarch.

For some reason, during the French Revolution, peasants broke into the Royal Crypt and stole Louis' mummified heart. We don't know their motives--they're French. Somehow, despite all the rioting and pitchforks and cheese-eating, the heart survived intact and made its way to England.

Eventually it ended up in the hands of the Reverend William Buckland. Of course, Buckland recognized what a rare and precious piece of history he possessed, and donated it to the Museum of-

-Oh wait, no, actually he ate it.

What were they thinking?

Buckland had a thing for eating really exotic cuisine. Among the more interesting things he had dined on were elephant trunk and roast giraffe. By the time the French king's heart came into his possession his palate was pretty jaded. What better to revive the taste buds than some cannibalism?

Oh and it seemed the Reverend had become concerned there might not actually be an afterlife after all, and decided eating a long dead king's heart would help him become immortal. For some #ing reason.

Buckland had the heart prepared for his Christmas dinner. We know he had it slow roasted with a side of beans, but the there is no record of the wine he washed it down with. We're going to assume Chianti.

Nah, that's from Cracked, a very advertising-full paid-writer semi-comedy website. Give me my no advertising satirical uncyclopedia any day, where, actually, you can find my "Corpsearian" article (a word I apparently made up after being irritated that people who eat normal food are labeled "vegetarian" or even worse, the alien sounding "vegan").

On a totally serious note, I've never seen such a large worm and wouldn't mind holding it. The topsoil must be great in its home areas. I have family members who have never walked on good healthy topsoil, where the ground actually will bounce under you.

In a survival situation do you believe you'd be able to consume that? Not the whole thing, but enough to help you get by...

I'd like to think I could, I just don't know if I'd be able to get pass the gross factor...


Apparently when you get hungry enough you will eat anything. That is what I have heard.

But, I am ok going the rest of my life without having to test that theory.

I am really surprised they haven't remade it. Especially with CGI now.

Looks like a small nightcrawler. Good fishing with those here in Texas, but those little ones only catch perch.

Wow! Creepy stuff, I heard of them before but I've never seen pictures like these. I'd heard they were quite fragile and could easily be damaged by being handled.

I remember seeing a huge earthworm about 5 inches long in a field one time and accidentally stood on it. I felt it squirm through the boot I was wearing which sent a shudder through me. I was already committed to putting my foot down and was too late to avoid it.

Don't worry you probably just made thousands of other worms

Like the tyrant when he fell in the river

Now that is one freaky giant worm!
they seem harmless, but I bet they have their mouths filled with thousands of tiny teeth just waiting to burrow into someones (insert human hole of choice here) while camping in their turf.

Ah, it gives me the creepers...
