I personally like them just where they are: Either in a lake or on a plate.

I like mine on a nice side of fish. Blackened / Cajun style. Yum!

I will not eat them in a lake, I will not eat them on a plate. I will not eat them in a Box, I will not eat them with a side of Lox. I do not care if you have a plan, I will not eat them Mach-I-Am!

I would say mainsteam or any other body of water, as I don't think Lamprey (being aquatic ) would survive underground.

Freddie,

I was thinking the same thing after I posted. Guess it's my childhood creeping back up on me. Er... wait... nevermind.

Love,
Green Lamprey & Spam

I came very late to the lamprey, after becoming dissatisfied with the renewed popularity of the leech. I really don't want to have to switch my allegiance to the more underground (well, undersea) and therefore much cooler hagfish. I'd have to sell my preserved lamprey collection, and that just wouldn't do.

I have a vintage lamprey on sale on ebay right now. Go check it out. He's a maked one: Lamprey's of Saskaquine.

What are people's opinions on neutral color tikis vs bright colors? Traditional vs stylized?

I have found this book to be an invaluable resource for Lamprey Lore:


And here is the Lamprey Song:

There must be some sort of an answer
That I just can't seem to find,
As to why I have all these damned lampreys
Dancing around in my mind.
I wish that I'd never seen one,
I wish that I'd simply gone blind,
'Cause I'd much rather get rectal cancer,
Than have lampreys hang on my behind...
Chorus:
Lampreys, lampreys, lampreys.
What e're in the world can we do?
I saw you last night with a lamprey,
And that was the end of you.
It was sometime in early September,
When lampreys first came here in force.
I can clearly and starkly remember
How they blew up the neighbor's red Porsche.
I saw all this out of my window,
I quickly dialed for the police.
But I reached but a lamprey pretender,
Those lampreys killed with no remorse...
Chorus.
When lampreys jumped into the parlor,
I quickly knew something was wrong.
I hit them with my youthful ardor,
But those lampreys were just too damned strong.
The cat--it was hurled in the garbage,
And I was flung onto the couch.
As I looked on in sheer helpless horror,
One said, "this house don't belong!"
Chorus.
The lampreys began to destroy it,
This house--from ceiling to floor.
I knew that I'd soon be in deep shit,
So I carefully inched out the door.
I started to run for the Army,
But suddenly couldn't run anymore.
The sight of you chatting with lampreys,
Was something I could not ignore.
Chorus.
I knew then that you were a traitor,
Conspiring with them to kill me.
To encourage a lamprey dictator,
To destroy all of humanity.
I ran from the site in confusion,
I ran for the nearest safe house.
But the lamprey dropped down on me later,
I just hadn't seen that big tree.
Chorus:
Lampreys, lampreys, lampreys.
What e're in the world could it be?
I chatted last night with a lamprey,
And that was the end of me.
