Best shrimp I ever had was on that cruise ship couple years ago. They was about eight inches long and about an inch and a quarter in diameter. Piece of pipe on a plate. They had them split open on the plate served with garlic and butter. Man, them things was good. Like eating lobster.
=====================================
Besides the bad grammar and making fun of this person's accent, how is this funny/strange/interesting?

Uh, anonymous, have you read more than just this post? It's funny BECAUSE of the bad grammar and accent; it's strange because this guy thinks he's an authority on everything but can't even spell; it's interesting because every office has a guy like this (although the guy near my cube isn't nearly as verbose as this)...
