A Brooklyn seafood importer has been accused of illegally importing nearly 4,000 snakehead fish, a predatory freshwater creature known as "fishzilla" that has been outlawed in New York state since 2004.

Not cool. Those snakeheads really could wreak havoc on native ecosystems.

But I've heard they eat pythons . . .

EW! I've just finished breakfast. That's one vicious rabbit fish.

a most disgusting picture.



I would not eat those snakehead fish
I would not eat them in a dish!
Not in a sauce
Not with my boss
Not grilled or toasted
Not oven roasted
I would not want to microwave
A snakehead fish for lunch with Dave.

Not me! Would you? And NOT with WU!
('twas Wu who knew what snakefish do....)

"Snakeheads are air-breathers and can travel short distances over land, writhing their body and fins until they reach a suitable aquatic habitat, according to prosecutors."

That is incredibly cool or incredibly creepy, depending on how big they get and how fast they run.

Toss it back. We already have Snooki.

No way, Howei!

Fish heads, fish heads,
PLEASE lop off those fish heads!!

The DA could not immediately say whether he had an attorney.

a) Why would the DA need an attorney?
b) Why wouldn't he know whether or not he had one?

Good one, Sandy.

Dave, please refrain from posting pictures like this when I've been up since 4 am watching a Royal Wedding. Does that fish have a tongue? Yuck!

It looks like there's a tongue in there. And I bet it's a b!tch when he bites it.

thank you, bonmot

Excellent, sandy.

Sandy, I suddenly have an urge for green eggs and ham. Oddly not fish.

We already have them in Washington. And their hair is perfect. Don't send any more.

one fish
two fish
don't eat WU fish

thank you, thank you, Dud & Guin
very glad to make you grin ;)
