POISONOUS jellyfish as big as dustbin lids will invade Britain’s seaside resorts if a summer heatwave warms up the nation’s seas.

HUGE: This jellyfish, the size of a dustbin lid, washed up on a beach in Dorset [DORSET MEDIA]
Bathers were warned to watch out for the Portuguese man o’war, which floats just below the water’s surface and has stings that can cause serious injury.
One giant barrel jellyfish has already been washed up at Portland, Dorset.
Fortunately, however, that particular variety proved to be harmless.
I am surprised they don't cook them, they would taste better than a lot of things the Brits eat, you wouldn't need tooth either.

Cooked, it probably has the texture of boiled snot.
I'm waiting for someone to spout 'global warming'.

The left blames this on global warming, I mean climate change, I mean extreme weather phenomenon in 5,4,3,2,1....

I can't say I've ever had bad English cooking. My mother's from Yorkshire, but she learned to cook in France as a housekeeper/nanny after she finished school. The worst thing she prepared regularly were boiled and mashed marrowfat peas. Oh, and I mentioned she can't do chili worth a damn.
One thing I've noticed growing up in Tennessee is that "southern" food is synonymous with "soft". Biscuits and gravy. Chicken and dumplings. Grits. Recipes you don't need teeth to consume.

The lionfish are invading US waters. The local fishermen are killing as many as they can. Suggestions are also being made to eat them, supposedly tasty. The problem is those barbs are poisonous. I don't think I'd want to be the cook trying to prepare those fish for a tasty meal. Yikes!!

My grandma's parents were British and she used a lot of their recipes. Most were pretty good and involved lots of butter. My great-uncle Bert used to make really good scones (the one who was a Sea Bee). Fish and Chips continues to be one of my favorite meals.
But, yeah, I've never tried blood pudding or anything with eels . My mom said that she used to help her grandmother make headcheese, but that she would never eat it afterwards. I'm not sure if that was her Welsh grandmother or her Austrian grandmother, though. Both grew up poor, and learned to cook disgusting things over the years of hardship.
