“Oysters have always been on my shuck-it list”

Some people have a “bucket list,” but what about a “shuck-it list”? “The Hot Oyster added to the ‘Shuck-it List’ today is the Wallace Bay” was posted on Twitter on July 21, 2010. “I don’t have a bucket list, I have a Shuck It list. All that’s written on it is ‘Oysters’” was posted on Twitter on November 5, 2014.

“Oysters have always been on my shuck-it list” was posted on Reddit—Oneliners on September 12, 2017.


Wiktionary: bucket list
Etymology
From kick the bucket (“to die”) + list, hence a “list of things to do before you die”. The term was coined by American and British screenwriter Justin Zackham in his screenplay for the 2007 film The Bucket List. Zackham had created his own list called “Justin’s List of Things to Do Before I Kick the Bucket” which he then shortened to “Justin’s Bucket List”. The first item on his list was to have a screenplay produced at a major Hollywood studio. After a time, it occurred to him that the notion of a “bucket list” could itself be fodder for a film, so he wrote a screenplay about two dying men racing to complete their own bucket lists with the time they had left. Articles about the movie are the earliest known uses.
Pronunciation
Hyphenation: buck‧et list
Noun
bucket list

There are only a few things on my “shuck it” list: Corn, Oysters, and John Schuck. I think that’s it.
