"... ate a funny whelk."
-- Vernon, referring to Marge (PS3)

Whelk

Definition

The whelk is a type of marine mollusk with a spiral shell, usually eaten with vinegar. The flesh is usually scooped out with a pin, so it’s not the sort of thing a sophisticated lady would eat. This indicates that Marge is rather common in her tastes.
