i got nothin’

“As if their deadly venom and spiny exteriors weren’t enough, scientists have discovered that stonefish have a hidden switchblade in their heads that they can flick out whenever they feel like they’re in danger.”

I was out late tonight (at a history lecture, thanks very much) so have a badass fish in lieu of effortpost. G’nght!

Ooh! That fish’s switchblade in the head is almost as good as Lotte Lenya‘s switchblade shoes.

“Ever see a man that’s stepped on a stone-fish? His body bends backwards like a bow with the pain. Sometimes it’s so frightful his eyes literally fall out of their sockets.” – Fidele Barbey to James Bond in “The Hildebrand Rarity” (short story), 1960.

Evolution wise, it looks more like a hinderance than a help. What if it sticks a predator and it gets stuck on his switchblade and it is stuck there? What a mess!

Khan will be demanding to know why these fish are carrying knives. There is never a good reason to carry a knife! said the guy who probably never did a lick of hard work in a blue color job in his life.
or was being molested by an eel.

Okay, I am corrected, he was a day laborer in construction. And he never had or never saw anyone he worked with using a knife on the job?

Sorry, I seem to be fowling the spirit of the place

That’s exactly what I was thinking of when I read the word “stonefish”!

Replying to Wolfus …

Not to be confused with the scene from “Thunderball” when James sucks a poisonous sea urchin spine out of Claudine Auger’s (“Domino”) foot. Bond (obviously lying): “That’s the first time I’ve tasted women”

Everybody is obsessed with the spike, but look at the size of that fish’s jaw. Yuge!

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
