Nod to the radium girls.

So, sometime after digestion the toilet snakes will have a night-lite?

Eat those with some ghost peppers and in a different light, Montezuma's Revenge may look more like St Elmo's Fire.

The Swedes got there first with lutefisk.

"Then then [sic] woman’s son ate one of the radioactive-looking pieces just for fun."

Uh... no.

Glow in the dark sushi fish bait might be better than regular sushi, especially for catfish or maybe trout. Uh.... sushi IS fish bait, right?

This is why gas station sushi never caught on with the public.

Crosby, Stills, Fluorescent Bacteria, Nash and Young opened for Pink Floyd.

When asked about Fluorescent Bacteria Mrs. man tom mentioned she saw nothing amusing about Jessada Denduangboripant, but offered Pseudomonas Aeruginosa is a name not seen often enough.

Pseudomonas is pretty nasty stuff. I doubt anybody wants to see it all that often.

I didn't realize fluorescein was so heat-stable (300C). No wonder the shrimp still glowed even after they boiled them. I could see this being a selling point for charging a higher price.

Fukushima sushi

Back in the dark ages when I was in college, I took a marine biology class at a facility that used seawater in the toilets. Phosphorescent dinoflagellates swam around in the bowls, providing a light show in the dark. They are considerably larger than bacteria and much smaller than shrimp and I don't recall eating them, but we were amused.
