I'll take the yummy cow but then I've never had a dolphin steak, I thinks canned tuna was better before they stopped adding the dolphin so maybe dolphin is really good.

I like a good top sirloin as well as anyone, but I'm not to keen on eating Flipper. Lol, I guess if I was hungry and thats what was going to keep me alive I could do it, but I've come to think that Dolphins are borderline sentient. Now Mahi, thats some good stuff. Ono is even better. Ive been up close with Dolphins in Hawaii, the Spinners, and they were just TO cool. Couldn't look at them as food. They just seemed so....knowing. Call me silly but it looked that way to me. I'd rather be buddies with the Dolphins.

I was kinda surprised to find out that whale and dolphin (porpoise) meat was red meat. I guess I just considered them as fish meat like tuna but they are mammals descended from land animals.
While I have never tasted marine mammal meat, iIm sure it has a distinctive flavor.

Actually there is the dolphin, fish: *The mahi-mahi (in Hawaiian)[1] (Coryphaena hippurus) and the dolphin, mammal **Dolphins are marine mammals that are closely related to whales and porpoises. There are almost forty species of dolphin in seventeen genera. The family Delphinidae is the largest in the Cetacea.

I imagine dolphin, the mammal, is a dark meat like beef.

Well, since the dolphin I eat is blended in to my can of tuna (along with discarded medical waste and mercury), it's hard to tell.

So I think I'll stick with cow for now.

However, when I see a dolphin served up for dinner, I think, "Oh, how sad." Shouldn't they be the same level of sad? " ==>When I see an idiot like you, I see " a complete fool." I think, "mmm, what a moron." However, when I see a cute untrained dog, I think, "Oh, how cute, it would be so awesome to train a dog like that."

The sponge is certainly one of the stupidest animals on earth. Bon appetite. Would you like ketchup on your sponge?

I've eaten whale, but I did not detect any of the intelligent overtones in its flavor. I think I have probably eaten dolphin, but where or when I can't specifically remember. Whale is not bad, it's a fairly tasty red meat, and not overly tough, but there is no marbling because there are no fat layers within the fleshy part of the body.

I liie both the fish and the steak. Overall I would pick the steak and I like red snapper much better than both.

I'm too cheap to try some obscure, hard to find protein like dolphin. If you can't find it at the grocery, I'm not interested quite honestly.

i'll need to actually try dolphin before I'll make a decision, besides if it was THAT tasty, it would be eaten more.
