The Pacific Geoduck (scientific name Panopea generosa) is a species of very large edible saltwater clam.
The Pacific Geoduck awkwardly resembles a giant waterlogged penis. It is found on the coastal waters of western Canada and northwest United States.
There’s no beating around the bush here. This clam looks like a humongous merman’s willy.
Don’t worry, Australian Mum Facebook followers covered all the Jason Momoa jokes in a advance.
The Geoduck, pronounced “”gooey-duck”, is practically a citizenship test for Northwesterners.
Geoduck farming has created an $80-million industry in the US. The oversized clam exports to China and sells at a high market value of around $33 per kilo.
It’s quite an eye opener, due to it’s resemblance to the male appendage. The Geoduck is also really interesting. The clam is one of the longest-living animals of any type.
The oldest Panopea generosa has been recorded at 168 years old. (This has been Fact Checked)
The sight of Pacific Geoduck had people in stitches.
When we posted the Pacific Geoduck on Facebook, the viral reaction was not expected. The post captured half a million Facebook users viewing the picture and 2000+ comments.
Some of the comments had us entertained for days. People really come out of their shell when there’s some hard core willy banter available.
We can now add “Marine Education” to our list of viral achievements.
In all seriousness though, who would have thought a clam could put food on the table in so many different ways. This clam is generating jobs in more than two countries, way to go!
We wish the clam and it’s industry and long prosperous life. Godspeed.
