Mekong Catfish

You've no doubt seen photos on the web of the insanely huge mekong catfish (Pangasianodon gigas) of Southeast Asia. But have you seen a video of one?

Check out this monster. This endangered fish gets to be 10 feet long and 650 lbs. It gains that bulk by eating plant matter, algae, and precious human children.

Just outside the picture frame is a dozen crates of lemons, and a dump truck full of cornmeal breading.

Whoops, I just read that they're endangered from overfishing. I guess I'll stick to weenie little American catfish instead.

Noyoki-sato: Don't worry, writing those comments gave me a MASSIVE pregnancy-induced craving for fried catfish, myself. And there's no way I can get it anytime soon! *sob*

And right after that was filmed, the chinese procceeded to catch the baby catfish, chop it up, and give it to their seriously something wrong with their wangs men.

B/c of course, as everyone must know by now. The more endangered the animal, the better boner it will give you!

Hoy, that man has guts. I don't care whether the fish has teeth or not; I wouldn't be wanting to stick my fingers in there.
