Where Do Eels Come From?

This may not be new ‘news’ so apologies if im retreading old ground but has anyone ever googled where eels come from?

I googled it this morning and I can’t stop thinking about it. It’s haunted my thought all day…

They’re from LA aren’t they?

I’m afraid to ask where the other ones come from based on your post :grimacing:

Is this a punchline of a joke?

Do we truly know where anything comes from?

It’s not! I thought it was too when I saw it on Insta this morning but I’ve spent more time today than I’d like to admit googling it and I’m still none the wiser.

I had an elver burger in Japan once. Like a patty made of hundreds of elver with all their little eyes looking at you. Did I know what I was ordering, reader? No, I did not.

Mr s_w reminded me today about elvers! He had them in Japan too (though not as a burger) can’t remember what with and I was glad I didn’t order the same :joy:
