The world is a wonderful place

I have just discovered my new favourite animal in the whole, wide world.



Here he is:





He is called a Blobfish.......probably.

UPDATE: for those of you who didn't believe he was real here is the wiki link.

How did you get a camera into my shaving mirror?

annie said...

hahahahaha! God's mind was not on the job when he made the Blobfish.

I love his expression.

Dave said...

Sadly, Vicus isn't joking.

Annie - isn't Giod allowed a sense of humour?

Dave said...

[I use the word Giod because I'm not allowed to utter the Name Of The Lord out loud, or something; not because I'm a rotten typist]

I bet other fish tell him, "Cheer up, it might never happen."

Molly Bloom said...

I actually laughed out loud! Yay! And at Geoff's comment too.

I love this fish. Don't anyone eat him, please.

Remember the Kilshaws, that couple who tried to adopt American twins on the internet? The Blobfish looks uncannily like Alan Kilshaw. Minus the spectables, obviously.

Mark Gamon said...

He looks like he needs a friend. He's probably very glad you came along, Doc.

Or into the company boardroom?

realdoc said...

He is rather fantastic isn't he. The world's most pissed off animal.

ziggi said...

He's obviously watching the cricket

I reckon Realdoc, until RPA is sorted out, Mr Blobfish could be our new mascot in FPU?

Molly Bloom said...

Just looks so cute. I think I might put him up on my Smartboard tomorrow.

Molly Bloom said...

I keep looking at him and giggling. I'm getting to rather like that little chap. Do you think you can adopt them?

Terri Nixon said...

I went out with him when I was 17, he's called Nigel.

realdoc said...

Molls he looks like he needs adopting to me.
lol Terri

realdoc said...

After seeing spinny's post about first bras I can think of a use for the blobfish, the boobfish...a living, breathing, breast prosthesis.

Chaucer's Bitch said...

where DID you find that photo??? surely that has to be some kind of organ or something that bears a coincidental (though) striking resemblace to a face. That can't possibly be a real animal...


...can it?

realdoc said...

It's real, it comes from New Zealand.

Now this is what you want to see when you visit a blog for the first time.
Impressed and ever so slightly queasy.

It's a cross between Ariel Sharon and Mr Noseybonk.

Wyndham said...

I think he's rather handsome.

Chaucer's Bitch said...

rockmother said...
