Your Proposal Intrigues Me

Do continue, I find this most fascinating. Unlike many of my hidebound colleagues, who remain content to bang their abalone on rocks like cavemen (the fools!), I am always keen to remain abreast of the latest advancements in shellfish extraction. Our kind must march hand-in-glove with Dame Progress, or surely she will leave us behind.

So this “dynamite” you speak of — does one bang it directly on the shell, or employ it as some sort of lever?

      Exactly! Where would we be if nobody ever took a chance on a new idea? Can’t make an omelet without blowing up a few eggs, I always say.

    Reduce the parts per million! Wait – that would mean LESS food, wouldn’t it?
