There aren't that many animals humans are willing to eat while they're still alive, but there are enough out there to remind you that yes, humans are and always will be animals, too. And the other animals eaten alive the most by humans tend to be quite a bit smaller than us, but sometimes we get ballsy and stare at a big ol' fish right in its fishy eyeballs while we eat its deep-fried flesh.Why do we engage in this savage practice?

This combination somehow ends up tasting like gorgonzola and black pepper, according to the brave souls who can stomach the stuff.
