I snapped on the thread expecting a genuine poll, with color bars. :smile: But, alas...

Armored catfish.

Slapping newcomers with exotic fish is a better alternative than releasing them in the wild.

In fact, come to think of it, we probably shouldn't release exotic fish into the wild, either. http://nas.er.usgs.gov/taxgroup/fish/docs/dont_rel.asp

Oh, wait. The poll just posted and armored catfish isn't one of the options. Never mind.

I've heard of Armoured Hotdogs, but never Armoured Catfish.

The only "armor" I want on my catfish is deep-fried cornmeal batter.

I see Sea Bass has taken an early lead.

Octopus as long as one gets hit by the head end (its nice and squishy) and not the tenticle end.

I heard there is a youtube video of an octopus eating a shark at the Seattle Aquarium. We might need to rethink octopus. I'd hate to have a new member eaten during their welcome ceremony.

Yes, and they can also contain dangerous levels of mercury. :biggrin:
No... I love sea bass. :frown:

Enuma, have you been properly fish slapped, or did you sneak in through the upper forum?

My first two choices (snapper and grouper) weren't there so I went with the 3rd (flounder).

Your not supposed to eat red snapper ( my favorite) because they've been over fished. Now they try to sell you something called "redfish". :grumpy:

Herring....they're very small. A bit oily, sure, but I can shower afterward.

http://vm.cfsan.fda.gov/~frf/seamehg2.html [Broken] says a Chilean sea bass measured in 2004 had one of the highest Mercury levels ever recorded in fish (2.18). Other measurements of sea bass are lower; it looks like as a group swordfish tops all.

And, no, I was never properly slapped. :disappointed:

No wonder they told me to "beet it" when I ordered one. :biggrin:
