    You Swallow These Invisible Shrimp With Every Gulp of NYC Tap Water



    New York's water is deliciousand filled with tiny crustaceans called "copepods". (Making it possibly not kosher.) H&E stain the water and put it under a microscope and you'll find these little guys. Crunchy closeup after the jump.

    Delicious!
    (And completely harmless. Copepods are even known to eat mosquito larvae, so don't think of them as invisible shrimp that are caught in your teeththink of them as invisible shrimp who make NYC tap water taste fantastic. Like fantastic, quenching shrimp juice.)

    Mmmmm..Yummy. I'm going to have shrimp water as an appetizer tonight. Does it come in lobster flavor? I could make a brisque.

    They did a blind folded taste test years ago with water from a fountain in a NY park against several companies who sell bottled water. About 80% of the people chose the NY fountain water as better tasting.

    Evian will now offer "shrimp free spring water".....does this mean we brush our teeth with a shrimp-mint-flouride paste?
