I thought they went down a little rough!

I don't normally watch morning "news" shows- the kind that are pure infotainment. Anyhow, Harry Smith? was walking some guy through a seafood cookout on the 6-month anniversary of the Gulf oil spill. He picked up a whole shrimp- not peeled and ate it. He made a quick comment about it being crunchy. The camera quickly moved away. I got a good laugh about that one. You'd think the man would've been reasonably familiar with how to eat shrimp.

Fried shrimp I will eat the tails but most the time I remove it. We took my uncles friend to a seafood place he was eating jumbo fried shrimp like they were popcorn shrimp

All the heads,shells tail bits are a great sauce base.Fry heads etc in a little EVO till they colour, some onion,bit of garlic glug of white wine towards the end,crush them with a potato masher then strain carefully.Works with all shellfish,great flavour boost for marinara sauce or the like.
