Is that a euphemism?

 

If so, I'd like to have a try.

I live in Suzhou, which is where the lake is. Yep, I've seen the crabs, sold by fishermen around the lake itself. They are not covered in fur, they just have one part of their arm with a patch of hair. I'm vegetarian, I didn't eat those. My colleagues like those crabs, but because they are cheap and fresh from the lake, not because they something fancy. Looks like ordinary crabs to me...

[PS] You don't say "very delicious", you say "delicious", because "very delicious" makes no sense, like "very faster" or "very tallest" is non-sense.

I have had them, they are gross.  They have no meat at all. People buy them to eat the yellow  brain? row?  something in their heads.  

 

I had a bunch of friends come over and cook them at my house once.  Once I saw them, I slipped out to get some KFC take-away.

I have had them before. My boss bought everyone loads of them. I thought they were not very delicious. I just ate some chicken instead.

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
