It Was This Big....

The friggin' huge catfish you see above is the worlds largest catfish, caught by some Thai fisherman from the Mekong River. It is 646 pounds, larger than both a grizzly bear and BrownBear. I suppose I should be writing in the past tense, because the fish was dinner for a whole lotta Thais. This news is all very timely, as last night I made blackened catfish for dinner. My catfish, I think, was much smaller. I only had a pound, and I doubt it came from a 600+ pound Thai catfish, but you never know. Either way, it was very good.

What does this posting have to do with anything? Well, I am fascinated with pictures of large fishes (seriously, I love to read about huge fishes). Also, I wanted to tell you about my lovely meal last night. You may now continue with your day. . . .

See..it would have been cooler if they put it in an aquarium..that is something I would have liked to see actually live.

It would be like seeing a mouse the size of an elephant. Weird..but cool.

Do you think they clubbed it to death on the banks of the Thai river for all to see? I bet women and children were running away in tears.

Maybe they flushed it down the world's largest toilet.

i like how it's close relative is the "dog-eating catfish." i wonder how it got a name like that?

Clearly it got the name dog-eating catfish because it lives in Thailand, and they eat dogs there. Obviously, when people in Thailand make a hamburger, it is dog meat. Then, after the BBQ is over, and they are out of Coors Light, they throw their extra "dog"burgers in the river and the catfish eats them. Apparently you know nothing about ichthyology.
