But how does it taste?

That never stopped anyone from eating oysters. This one looks like a big purple cock, it must be an aphrodisiac!

Meh. I don't get the collective squeamishness over this thing. The ocean has much more horrible things living in it.

Are these the same sort of 'shipworms' that eat into wooden hulled vessels like barnacles do? Cause Jesus it seems like this mollusk(?) would sink most wooden ships.

Come on POETV biologists and oceanographers, help The Mothership out, I need to know.

While little ones have the nickname "termites of the sea" for the reason you describe, big species are largely muck-dwelling chemovores that rely on symbiotic critters to eat and digest things for them.
