It looks like a horror. Let me take its water, my lord.

It's yet another British culinary specialty. The guts are boiled with parsnip leaves and it's called Blow Pot.

Mmmm, fugu. My most memorable meal in Japan, and there were a few.

But yeah, Cornish blowfish? Just throw 'er in a stargazy pie, it will turn out alright.

I need to work 'Cornish Blowfish' into more of my conversations.

Ok, so you're on the beach and you find a dead fish that by all accounts shouldn't normally be there. This is your moment. You recognize it immediately. It's a puffer fish. Good thing you brought your gloves.

It's full of.poison. A poison that seems very likely to be overlooked by those pesky investigative type people that attend to unexplained deaths. It's also untraceable. This fish shouldn't be immediately available to someone in Newquay, Cornwall. Hell, even if it was, you're not from here; you're from Penzance.

So, long story short, free untraceable tetrodotoxin. No known antidote. Unlikely to be screened for by post mortem testing.

It's time to get the list out.


Or hey, you could just call a museum and see if they want ir. Whatever.

I can't even tell if you're making a joke.
British food sucks.

Its poisonous, not venomous

I know why she's freezing it. Hopes to collect a few more and make a variant of this horror of Cornish cuisine.

AFAIK, the puffer fish gets it's toxins from the coral that it eats.

So aquarium-raised puffer fish have no traces of the toxin in their flesh.

I assume Cornwall doesn't have the same species of toxic coral that the Japanese fish have in their warmer waters?

Not as deadly as the salmon mousse

Constance Morris - who found the fish which contains a toxin 1,200 times more poisonous than cyanide - has put it in her freezer.

Why would they put Constance in her freezer?
