Monk Fish

“Well it didn't look like that when I ate it 🤣,” replied Z.W.  “It looked more like this.”  He jokingly posted a picture of a fisherman holding up a very large, freshly caught monk fish with its toothy maw agape.

“You sure it didn't look like this?” I said, and posted the following picture.
