Mr. Blobby

Infomaniac welcomes Mr. Blobby...



No, not this Mr. Blobby.

Our Mr. Blobby is a blobfish...an inedible, bottom-dwelling fish living off the coast of Australia.

Mr. Blobby faces extinction due to getting trapped in the nets of overfishing trawler fishermen.

We here at Infomaniac hope that something can be done to protect Mr. Blobby. So far, this gift card is all we've found although we're sure there must be a blobfish conservation society out there somewhere.

We don't know whether Mr. Blobby will use the gift card in a campaign "for 40 percent of the world’s oceans to be designated as marine reserves. Acting like underwater national parks, these no fishing areas will enable oceans to recover and protect all species of sea creatures, including the blob fish" or whether he'll blow it all on a facelift.

We simply hope that we can turn that frown upside down.

  2. Looks like he's been spending too much time roaming around the bottom of the jincuzzi.

  5. FACELIFT!
    in order to be taken seriously, one must
    present oneself in a professional, under the sea manner.

  6. I'd make a joke about this being a before foto in a vaginal rejuvenation brochure, but that would be wrong.

    Instead, I shall add my support to the conservation effort to protect the blobfish:

    Save the blobfish! Say no to irresponsible seamen!

  7. Save the Blobfish indeed ... curiously, your pic of Blobfish is the spitting image of my lawyer. He has the same miserable frown, the same globule of nicotine-y saliva oozing out of the corner of his mouth.
