From the "Ewww, Creepy" Department

It isn't creepy that jellyfish is often eaten in parts of East Asia. Heck, I would love to try it - this fancy recipe for Marinated Jellyfish with Chili Oil and Green Apple Tea from a big New York chef for example, sounds intriguing. And how about this traditional Chinese recipe for stir-fried chicken shreds with jellyfish? Yum.

It is creepy that scientists have carefully created a twelve-headed jellyfish in a lab. The wonders of modern genetic research. Ew.
