Oh, Yeah … Well, Fugu!

This will be short and sweet. Here we have an example of just how dumb people can be.

In the realm of the “Do Not Eat This” universe this is what you might call beyond the pale. Fugu is a fish, the intestines, ovaries and liver of which contain a poison called tetrodotoxin. This particular poison is 1,200 times deadlier than cyanide.

Chefs undergo two to three years of training in an effort not to kill their customers. Are you getting our drift here?

Simply put, do not order fugu to impress a date. Do not order fugu to win a bet. Do not ever, under any circumstance, order fugu.

Well, maybe in a Columbo-style criminal plot to remove a business rival or cover up your embezzling ways … no, forget we said that … don’t ever order fugu.
