    How hard are these shells to find? I am going on a nice vacation to a beautiful beach this summer and if would love to find one of these.

    In the FWI, you can find them on every local market, but … selling or buying them is NOW totally prohibited (it was not years ago) in order to protect the species. I think it's the same in Cuba, but I don't know in the other islands of the Caribbean Sea. I would not encourage you to do forbidden things! ;-)
    Anyway, we can only fly them in checked baggage, not in the cabin.

    Oh, I did not realize that. I guess I will just stick a trumpet mouthpiece in it, that makes it legal. Right Dupac?

    I am so sorry to hear you were eel. I hope you can clam down and relax for a little whale.

    It's so loud because of the "standing wave" it creates! It does seem to be an easy horn to mussel around. I don't see any way to make it play in tuna though! I'm gonna clam up on that note and scallop on outta here!

    Although I am not as eel, I still feel like a slug. My doctor told me to go to the farm and sea horses and sea cucumbers. It all started after I saw VB's posts about that Giant Squid. Mow I'm having flashbacks and nightmares. My wide said my Restless Legs were moving like an octopuses. All she heard was Whales and moans. You know, what she served me for
    a snack oysters on the half shell and the flashbacks started all over again. I'm going to buy me a harpoon gun and catch me a Sperm Whale because the Doctor said my sperm count was down. Yes it is time to clam up, stick to it like a barnacle, and make a stand like Ahab against Moby Dick!
    Now if I can find my scopolamine patches, cause I get sea sick!
    PS: If you cross a Comch shell with a trigger fish do you get a Connchstellation?

    Minnows it will be hard to stop since some of these are BRILL-iant and some are so conch-ise in meaning! Although, feel as if it could turn into a crappie thread if different puns aren't used. Probably a day or two before it reaches it's pike! Won't be complete though until G-man carps in!! This is ray-tuna funny!!

    Paging Dr. GM Stat. We're out of line with a whopper on the other end.
