where does their poop go? because people eat them right out of the shells, are they eating their waste with them?

I think they are, unless they remove that brown part all the way at the bottom of the clam. I'm not positive though.

Of course they poop. Yes, we eat it. We also eat shrimp poop (that vein on the back is poop, I think) and fish poop and crab and lobster poop.

If something lives in the sea, the poop is, well, more edible than a mammal or bird.

You know that's supposed to be removed before cooking right?

But it adds to the flavour.

Not really, lobster poop only adds to the experience. And I'm not trying to be funny/sarcastic/whatever, I'm dead serious.
