There’s No Need To Rush … We’re All Just Waiting, Waiting To Die

I’m not sure if you’ve heard, but it’s official.  The world’s ugliest animal has been named!

Meet the blobfish:


I did a little research and learned that it’s a deep-sea fish that inhabits the waters off the coasts of Australia and Tasmania.  Because it dines on lobster and crab, fishermen’s trawling nets are a cause for concern.  While the blobfish itself is inedible, it faces possible extinction due to over-fishing in its habitat.

This is definitely a serious matter, but today we’ll be celebrating the awesomeness that is the blobfish.  I mean, who couldn’t love this freakish creature that looks more like a crotchety old man than a fish?  One of my favorite descriptions is from ABC Online: “a slimy pink Australian fish which resembles a grumpy and obese old man with a bulbous nose.”  So completely accurate.

Just in case you disagree, here are a few more humorous pictures.  Enjoy!




Now you know what he might look like if he decides to start a rap career.




And if the rap career doesn’t work out, he can always just be a grumpy old man with a fancy top hat, bowtie, and monocle.  I imagine he’d also adopt a British accent to go with his new look.
