This Fish Looks Like Ziggy If Somebody Stepped On His Head

A gift from Minion Miffanwy, this corpulent corpuscle of the dark trenches seeks to unleash its vengeance in the misty regions of...oh, hell, this thing is just really fat. I mean, seriously, look at it. Fat city. Totally gross.

It's a real fish. "A Fathead (genus Psychrolutes) trawled during the NORFANZ expedition at a depth between 1013 m and 1340 m, on the Norfolk Ridge, north-west of New Zealand, June 2003.... The scientists and crew on board the RV Tangaroa affectionately called this fish 'Mr Blobby'."

p.s. The thing hanging from its mouth is a copepod (a kind of crustacean).
