$110 a kilo? Well, that's much cheaper than I would have guessed. Who takes a risk at killing some one for that kind of chump change? Cooks who prepare fugo are very well trained though.

So are lawyers, accountants, doctors, and other professionals, although this comes with ***.

Blowfish are cute and smart. Not really into eating things that clever and cute.

/Also swore off octopus after watching a few documentaries on them. They sure aren't cute, but their intellect is scary impressive.

They used to have a Hootie auction until they realized how problematic it was.

I've had the chance to try fugu when I was in Tokyo. It's pretty much an extra dangerous white fish; fascinating in concept, but ultimately rather mundane.

I only eat a girl, out, if she is cute and smart. Uglies don't get an O.

Fugu isn't that dangerous, just certain parts. Anyone who can clean a fish would be able to discard them safely.  The commercial chefs are trained though. There's a license.

The government actually dinged a supermarket in Tochigi? iirc for selling the "dangerous" cuts a different kind of puffer that looks like fugu. People were eating it no problem.

Mochi is what kills people.
