Step away from the Croaker! [Oct. 10th, 2008|04:15 pm]
"New York State Agriculture Commissioner alerted consumers not to eat Frozen Salted Croaker distributed by YS Trading Corp, Long Island City, New York because the product was uneviscerated."

Because the only thing better than Frozen Salted Croaker...would be Frozen Salted Croaker with guts intact.

Isn't frozen AND salted overkill? Well, I guess it would be, if only they hadn't left the guts in....

(Botulinism is what you'd be worried about in an uneviscerated, frozen, salted fish...assuming your taste buds came out alive...)

Is an ichthyologist one who studies the religions of slimy fish?

No. That would be an ichtheologist!

It's a non-eviscerated salted fish, frozen.

It's a fish. Smallish, saltwater from the Drum family, white sweet mild flesh.

...unless it wasn't eviscerated before it was preserved, then it's got white, sweet mild flesh, possibly teeming with Clostridum botulinim...

Well thank God the authorities warned me, because otherwise I'd be sitting down for a marathon session of TiVOed Project Runway episodes and slamming down frozen salted croaker like they were Funyuns.
