    No.

    I don't feel it would be keeping with my vegetarianism.

    I'd eat them. Seems like a good idea to me.

    I might give them a try. Why not? It would probably not be the weirdest thing that I have ever eaten.

    I'm in the fence. Depends on taste and/or texture.

    I was a good customer at one particular restaurant. Sometimes they would give me different things. Once they gave me something I had not seen before. It tasted a bit beefy and fishy. My first thought was "On no". I asked if it was whale meat and it was.

    If might be cultural but I could not do that purposefully.

    At age five, I used to pick ants off peonies and ate the ants. I'm now a vegetarian, I might consider reverting back to eating some low fat high protein animals like ants.

    Cows and pigs are not very sentient. I don't think that the same can be said of whales.

    I was under the impression that pigs were fairly intelligent; at least as smart as dogs.

    I don't know about cows, but I had one follow me around with its tail wagging at the pettings zoo about a week ago. It was adorable.

    I don't know much about whales, though. Are they pretty intelligent?

    It is thought that they are more intelligent than dogs or pigs:
