Fear the Blobfish

From the LA Times:

"Because as scary as the Asian carp may be, the carp are gigantic bony creatures with large scales. They could never squeeze through your tap.

But the blobfish is boneless. It's a blob.

So, theoretically, it might squeeze through all the protective filters and screens, and then, with a grunt, pop right out of your stylish Swedish designer faucet, its ugly face first.

Or perhaps out of your toilet bowl when you're at your most vulnerable, sleepy in the middle of the night.

Or what about your pulsating-massage shower head? Just imagine the beast squeezing from the shower head, hurtling at your face, or worse, into your open mouth, your muffled screams unheard by your loved ones."

Do you have copy writer for so good articles? If so please give me contacts, because this really rocks! :)

Hmm. Not sure what you mean. Do you mean "copywrite?"

I take copyright pretty seriously too, so lets examine things:

1) I used 117 words of an 899 word article, which I hope reasonable people would define as "fair use."

2) I attributed the article to the LA Times and provided a link.

3) The photograph was paid for with tax dollars.

4) Titles can't be copyrighted (and it truly rocks so I wanted to use it.)

But if you haven't, check out the full article. It is even more amusing than the small excerpt I posted. And thanks for stopping by!
