Just heard on the news...NASA in conjunction with Japan are going to use millions of Japanese puffer fish to raise the Titanic.

Mr Yoko, head of the program, said in a statement "puffer fish are a favored but poisonous delicacy in Japan. We are the world leaders in puffer fish breading and eating. When NASA approached us yesterday with the idea we became very excited."

Puffer fish, also known as toad fish, puff up like little balloons when scared. Mr Yoko said the plan is to lure millions of puffer fish into the remains of the Titanic. Mr Yoko then said "NASA divers will flash pictures of whaling boats, salad side dishes and dipping sauce through the windows of the Titanic". Mr Yoko went on to say "It is believed that these images will scare the living day lights out of the puffer fish. They will then puff up like millions of balloons and the Titanic will float to the surface".

When asked about the welfare of the puffer fish Mr Yoko said "no puffer fish will be harmed and they will all be kept for scientific research, or they will be eaten".

Puffer fish is a real popular eating fish in Korea. The soup is good for after heavy drinking! The puffer fish sashimi is very delicacy dish.

In a later report Japan confirmed that NASA ( well, a 12 year old knowitall from some where near Hawaii and the owner of an iThingy ) confirmed, that the skin of the spiny Japanese puffer fish can be used as garden gloves protecting ones delicate fingers from spider bites..

However, this protective nature of the puffer fish skin only happens once a year...which just happened to be yesterday, or if you like a year from now...Either way it is yesterday or a year from yesterday !!
