What's a shucker?


Is that a real thing, or something made up for this show?

reply

It's the person who shucks the oysters.

reply

Why can't they shuck the oysters themselves?

reply

When do the rich do anything themselves?

reply

Is it really that hard to shuck oysters, why can't a regular waiter do it, do you really need a specialised person for this?

reply

Have you ever seen an oyster?, their shells are sharp and jagged and add to that mix a super sharp knife and you have a recipe for disaster.
I wouldn't expect a waiter to do it. It's something a chef would do

reply

I've seen oyster for sale but never ate them, are they different from regular edible mussels or clams? If you need a specialized person to open them, they seem like just too much trouble, are they really that tasty...?

reply

Yes. Are you a hillbilly from the Ozarks or something? Oysters are expensive delicacies.

reply

I'm from Romania, we had oysters before US even existed, every supermarket with fresh fish also has them, but they never seemed appealing to me, what's so special about them?

reply

I'm actually surprised that they were even referenced on the show, and yes it's a real word.

reply

Oh ya
