Zombie Fish

I was all set to share this with you last week when I received news that George Romero had died. As far as zombies and the Horror genre were concerned, there WERE no other news stories after that. The King had left us. We are still in mourning.

Perhaps a little levity will lighten our spirits. Let us discuss those numerous creepy videos scattered around the interwebs of filleted, headless fish seemingly coming back to life, videos like this one. (What, you don’t think that’s funny? Imagine it happening at one of those fancy Japanese restaurants where they prepare your food in front of you, where your family is having dinner with grandma.) Some people are claiming the video is faked, that it’s a trick. I can personally attest, however, that it is possible.

I used to go fishing often when I was a little kid, with my Dad and family friends. (I haven’t been in years. I always enjoyed it. I need to make time to go when the weather cools down.) I have personally seen a fish fillet–that’s HALF a fish, freshly cleaned and prepared–when dropped into a frying pan, try to leap back out of it. Zombie fish is realz, y’all.
