Good Morning all!
I recently read this article in the Telegraph UK that scientists have learned how to remove the toxin in Fugu! That’s right folks, the Tetrodotoxin is in the bag, and soon, eating Fugu will be like eating any other non-toxic fish in a Japanese restaurant. Think of all the Japanese Fugu master chefs who will be out of a job because they can no longer boast of skills that remove internal organs of the fish that once contained epic amounts of powerful nerve poison – tetrodotoxin. Also, where is the thrill in eating something that has no risk in it .. that you might NOT just heal over and die from consuming it at any minute?! No thrill whatsoever, I say.
Arrgh.. eating Fugu without poison is like.. is like ..(oh! I feel a competition coming on..!)
