this is the first step in awakening the geoduck nation"
this documentary I did all kinds of research to find out whether or
not I was the victim of some kind of twisted joke. After all, the
subject of the film is the geoduck (pronounced "gooey duck"), a clam
with a three-foot-long, phallic-like neck that is found in the
Pacific Northwest. (I live in the Pacific Northwest and have never
heard of it.) Once these creatures are harvested, you can pump on
the neck to force water out of it, which makes it look like the
creature is urinating. It had to be a joke, right? Wrong.
The geoduck is
documentaries, and I especially enjoy ones that teach me something
new, as this film did. Before watching this, I had no clue any such
creature existed. Now I can impress my friends and family with my
new knowledge of this obscene sea creature, though I must say that I
think I know far too much about this shellfish that causes "teenage
girls to giggle" and is a delicacy in China. I'm also curious as to
why more people don't know about it. Perhaps this is the first step
in awakening the geoduck nation. Well ... maybe not.
Either way, this
is a fascinating insight into the world of the geoduck – the most
pornographic of the sea creatures.
