    Has this ever happened to anybody else?? We were having an outdoor event and I was eating clams, and I bit into something.. Spat the thing out, and it was a PEARL!! I SWEAR! I spat out both sides of it.. I had split it in half. It mustve been still soft though. It was eggshell shaped. I set it aside, and then forgot about it when a fast moving thunderstorm came through. We folded up the table, cleaned up and ran for shelter. I doubt I could find the pearl in the grass.

    The neighbor kid told me that I ate a clam that was probably 100 years old. I didnt google any of this, but is he right?


    Anybody else ever bite into a pearl??

    No, but I think if you drink some scotch immediately afterwards, it helps! :D

    Like that will happen in this lifetime.

    Since I am not a quitter, I actually bought a little sampler of a mixed scotch, or whatever they call it. I think it was made by Jameson. (not Jenna ) I sniffed it... swished it around in a glass. I swished it around in my mouth.. and swallowed. It was horrid. But the horrid did not last long. The aftertaste was better than the taste. I sortve liked the numb feeling in my mouth.

    Jamieson is not scotch, it's Irish whiskey!!! Just get nice, smooth blended, either a Chivas or a Dewar's White Label and it will have the same nice aftertaste with less of a "horrid" bite.

    You should see these dudes that suck and swallow. I chew mine up dipped in a cocktail sauce; they are slap your momma good. You need to give them a try.
