Seven diners in northern Japan fell ill and three remained hospitalized Tuesday after eating blowfish testicles prepared in a restaurant not authorized to serve the poisonous delicacy.

Darwin at work.

I thought that said "run out of bait" at first.

In further reports, the diners were magically revived when they were told to lick bluefin tuna.

Is there anything they won't eat in Japan?

No sher, Shitlock

Fugu got them FUBARed.

I was born in Japan and I have enough sense to ask what it is before I eat it!

I have to confess;I too am unauthorized to serve blowfish testicles.

Yes, I will have that with a side of arsenic and hemlock, thanks.

Tiny testicles, in my stew
make me nauseous, make me wanna spew...

No wonder Hootie went solo...

*scrutinizes the aquarium*
Did not know the little fishies had testicles.

The restaurant owners probably have a Florida fugu license.

fish balls, fish balls, roly poly fish balls
eat 'em up, eat 'em up, die!

*snork* @ Siouxie


^ Those are not fish testicles.

Fish. Testicles. I'm with Braniff77 - is there nothing they won't eat over there?

Wait a minute... They didn't specifically SAY "fish testicles", they said "blowfish testicles". Hey, has anyone seen Hootie lately?

I was wondering the same thing Mr. C ;-P

Hmm. Those Blowfish get around.

Needless to say, "Poisonous Blowfish Testicles" WBAGBFARB.

MARFIE!!! You've been away longer than I have! Howzit???

At least they had the balls to sell the forbidden items.

This would never happen in Brooklyn:

"Ay, what's duh special, Vinny?"


"No, fu-GU!"

Frodo - Baybeeee! I'm good - just stayin' away from those blowfish ball(bearings?)
