Russian fisherman catch squeaking alien and eat it. Footage of the 100kg monster was also caught on camera phone (possibly nsfw page).

Why does the "Russian" camera phone vid have middle eastern music in the background?

Sturgeon are very ugly and very delicious, though endangered in many parts of the world.

The bottoms of animals are usually uglier than the top side, and that is the bottom of an ugly sturgeon.

If they'd flipped it over, there'd be no story.

Why doesn't the camera phone link have a motherfucking nsfw warning?

Excuse me, I have to clean out my desk now.

There are plenty of NSFW images all over the second link.

Sorry, mullingitover, when I viewed that link earlier today I remember it being boob-free. Damn.

whoa! that thing looks just like an alien.

Thanks, ColdChef. That link pretty much clears the whole thing up.

Well, good. So Science! may still be able to enjoy his dream of being the first man to kill and eat a martian.

I see your sturgeon, and raise you one goblin shark.

"East way hungry?"

Ugh, uncanny hengeman. You're making me hate the ocean. Where are the panda fish? The kitten squid? The moist-eyed and ingratiatingly cuddly laptopusses?

That is as authentically alien as these critters on the same silly Fark page.

Dang that gobllin shark is ugggly.

Way to go ColdChef. You da Google fu man.

A classic Fiji Mermaid hoax! People have been turning skates, rays and other fish into icky, dried things for a really long time. A good image search reveals dozens of specimens.

P.T. Barnum nailed it decades ago - amazing that it still works!

Also: The phenomenon by which we see a face in the underside of a fish (and the Virgin Mary in a grilled cheese) was explained quite well in todays New York Times.

Jesus, what is with the guitar fish's freakishly human mouth?

Yes, there are some pert boobies at that link. Maybe a NSFW is called for?

aladfar: I'm surprised the NY Times article (in particular the photo sequence featuring Bill Clinton's face, where they point out that it's generally harder to recognize faces when they are upside down) didn't comment on this phenomena, in which features that are upside down appear to be normal faces.

I first remember seeing this done with Lincoln's face, but I couldn't quickly find an example.
posted by yhbc at 8:46 PM on February 13, 2007


Okay, I found an example.

Guitarfish are cool, they have a bunch of meat in the tail and give a good pull when you catch them.It does say 100 kg and that is either a fish story or a skate as guitarfish are not that big. I cannot remember them squeaking but there is much I do not remember.

How about an apology to linking to Fark.ru while you are at it? Just out of principle. Think about how well a FPP linking to Metafilter.cc would go over.
