Great idea - and a lot better than just "slurping them out!"

Haha, yes. Maybe do that when it's just you eating :-)

Mussels are mollusks, not arthropods.

Instructables like this one should be forbidden for it is tantalising. It is not possible to buy mussels here and after seeing this instructable I will have nightmares of mussels :)! And yes you are absolutely right eating mussels with an empty shell is the only way you should eat them. Making my nightmares even more worse: How do you cook them with water, wine or beer :)

White wine or beer, they're already full of water !

Haha, I thought you were serious half way through that! I use white wine, or thai broth…need to do BEER! :-)
