Rhode Island has an official state appetizer. Who knew?

But during a roll-call montage on Night 2 of the Democratic National Convention, no vote on Tuesday night commanded the Internet’s attention quite like Rhode Island’s — or its official state appetizer, calamari.

The idea faced a hostile reception from many Rhode Islanders, who objected to the legislature elevating calamari over clam-based dishes. Others suggested that elected officials should focus on the problems plaguing the state instead of debating the relative merits of seafood appetizers.

Gene Weingarten, writing in the Washington Post about online news stories and the accompanying readers' comments: "I basically like 'comments,' though they can seem a little jarring: spit-flecked rants that are appended to a product that at least tries for a measure of objectivity and dignity. It's as though when you order a sirloin steak, it comes with a side of maggots."

Yes amazing. I pointed this out to @Anna N in the Ladies Who Lunch topic when she referred to her beloved calamari as squid.! Thanks for the video. Calamari is my cheapo comfort food when good shrimp and lobster not around.
