After watching this documentary I did all kinds of research to find out whether or not I was the victim of some kind of twisted joke. After all, the subject of the film is the geoduck (pronounced “gooey duck”), a clam with a three-foot-long, phallic-like neck that is found in the Pacific Northwest. (I live in the Pacific Northwest and have never heard of it.) Once these creatures are harvested, you can pump on the neck to force water out of it, which makes it look like the creature is urinating. It had to be a joke, right? Wrong.
The geoduck is real.
I enjoy documentaries, and I especially enjoy ones that teach me something new, as this film did. Before watching this, I had no clue any such creature existed. Now I can impress my friends and family with my new knowledge of this obscene sea creature, though I must say that I think I know far too much about this shellfish that causes “teenage girls to giggle” and is a delicacy in China. I’m also curious as to why more people don’t know about it. Perhaps this is the first step in awakening the geoduck nation. Well … maybe not.
Either way, this is a fascinating insight into the world of the geoduck — the most pornographic of the sea creatures.
