Crazy Foods - Live Octopus

Considered a delicacy in South Korea, eating live octopus, or sannakji, can consist of eating a specimen whole or in pieces. The octopus is so fresh in this dish that the tentacles are often still squirming while they are ingested.

This can the food to become lodged in place, resulting in choking or even death. I don’t know about you, but possible death is a little too much adventure at dinner time for me.
