See, and here I was feeling like a moron because I had this Jamaican curry take-out for lunch, knowing full well the effect it will have on me. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say I'm hoping the Air Force base 30 miles or so from where I'm sitting doesn't lose control of a heat-seeking missile. Because it would surely find my ass. Anyway, thanks blowfish-ball-eating boneheads, for raising my self esteem!
Blowfish testicles poison 7 diners in Japan
Unlicensed chef prepared delicacy eaten by thrill-seeking gourmetsTOKYO - Blowfish testicles prepared by an unauthorized chef sickened seven diners in northern Japan and three remained hospitalized Tuesday after eating the poisonous delicacy.
The owner of the restaurant in Tsuruoka city, who is also the chef, had no license to serve blowfish and was being questioned on suspicion of professional negligence, police official Yoshihito Iwase said.
Blowfish, while extremely poisonous if not prepared properly, is considered a delicacy in Japan and is consumed by thrill-seeking gourmets.
