An Oyster Shucker is someone who opens oysters.

Usually use a flat-bladed screwdriver to tackle the hinge.

In the past, by the way, oysters were looked down on as a cheap food for the Common People. Don't know what happened to turn them into the desirable and pretty pricey things they are today.

You need a “professional” to use a flathead screwdriver to open oysters? :lol:

I wonder what a professional toilet flusher gets these days... :?

No a professional but someone that is able to open oysters at a rapid constant rate for 4 hours straight 6 days a week.
