Have a Merry Catfish Christmas!

(Story alert from Mom)

While my blogging friends (and other blogging people I've never read or heard of) are posting beautifully written Christmas and Happy Holiday wishes, I knew that my blogging friends (and other blogging people I've never read or heard of) would be sorely disappointed if I didn't post a picture and a story about a big-ass animal/reptile/fish/mammal/amphibian of some sort.

Here are more pictures and here is the entire story.

Have a big-ass Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

Well, in Norway plenty of people have CODFISH for Christmas...liver, pickled testicles, tongue, brains and eyes an' all...with red wine-- so why not! And Happy Christmas Day, Laurie!

No way I'm cleaning that thing!

Laurie said...

Old Roses - There are actually pictures of the guys cleaning it. Yuck!

You are so right about our expectations---I kind of expected a crocodile (or is it alligator you're infatuated with?) with a wreath of those LED lights shining through the more tender parts of his skin....but these are good.

Lorna - I'm going to have to make me a Christmas gator for next year.
