Jeudi Joyeuse – Celebrating Ugly

This peculiar fish had the temerity to look at me with disdain.

Beauty they say is in the eye of the beholder. When I beheld this fish in the Melbourne Aquarium I was rather startled by its appearance. Given its expression I suspect it was also rather startled by mine.

Is it an ugly fish? Is it a beautiful fish? Is it even a fish?

I am afraid I don’t even know what its official name is…

I shall call it Mr Glub Glub.

I can’t answer for everyone, but it certainly was eye catching, and when I came across this photo while I was desperately backing up my photo collections after a rather worrying “blue screen of death” interlude, I thought it might be something to intrigue a few readers looking for something out of the ordinary on a Thursday.

Unfortunately the fish was unavailable for comment on its impression of my own appearance at the time of publication.
