Would you kiss a monkfish?

Edi, this one's for you...
During Valentine's Day, Whole Foods' Nashville will give 1 free lobster tail to each person brave enough to kiss this ugly beast. While supplies last.

If only we weren't so contagious...

Be it dead or be it alive???

I think I'd be more scared to kiss it if it was alive...actually I might be scared to kiss it if a bunch of other people had already kissed it - I can imagine it crawling with germs.

I think my dd would be willing to kiss it for the free lobster tail...and I probably would too (dead or alive)...if ds would kiss it - then all 3 of us would have a lobster tail to try!

What a fun promotion for Whole Foods to have...I'd be curious to know how many people did it.

Yuck! Makes me doubly glad I don't care a thing for lobster!

Kim said...

Hmmm now how big IS the lobster tail?

I have to admit I'd probably do it. And somehow trick the baby into doing it too. Maybe bring my Dad with me...love lobster!

Just a lobster tail? I think they deserve more than that!

Flighty Girl said...

Eewwwwwwwww.... I've been craving lobster like none other. I'd let my husband kiss it ;)

April said...

I would SO do it. It's just a fish! I can guarantee I kiss more disgusting things on my children's faces everyday! ;)

At Pike Place Market in Seattle they have one of these displayed most of the time and when people get close to it, they pull an invisible line that makes it's mouth open wide and shut again. It's so creepy and ugly! It wouldn't be worth it for me lol.

I do not think I could kiss that even with my eyes closed. The smell alone of fish makes me sick to my stomach. Just can not do fish. Lobster; well, I would have to pass. Make it chocolate covered strawberries???? Maybe I could get the neighbor's cat to come kiss the fish for me? Does the offer say the kissor has to be a human? Thanks for the good laugh so early in the morning.
Hope you and the family are feeling better. Happy Valentine's Day. Roxie

Think I would just BUY my lobster tail! After all, if you are preparing it yourself it is still much cheaper than eating it out!

Have a happy Valentine's Day! Love to you and your family.

Blech. Dead fish- stranger germs.
Good thing I don't like lobster as much as I do like free food. Now if it was a free gallon of organic milk I'd pucker right up. ; )

Teachin' this mommy new tricks! said...

What the freak is it even. Alive...dead? Will it bit me ...or take my soul!

Amy said...

It's official, I won't do ANYTHING for a freebie anymore :)

Thanks for the laugh!

TracyMichele said...

OH MAN! And Hubs took the van and car seats to work today. erg. I TOTALLY would do that! Of course, I am a crazy woman from Maine desperate for lobster! :)

How do you find out about these things, anyway!? HILARIOUS.

BUT if it were a REAL HOMEGROWN TOMATO, then bring on the Monkfish!

Awesome. I'm on my way to Whole Foods.

TJ said...

Like Chatty Housewife I have seen these ugly buggers at Pike's Place Market in Seattle. I might kiss one for some Dungeness Crab, but not lobster.

Ewokgirl said...

I would totally do it. But I'd rather have the monkfish as a prize rather than the lobster. Lobster I can find. Monkfish is a rarity in TX, and it's my favorite fish in the world! I frequently ordered in restaurants when I lived in Norway. Good stuff!

It may be ugly but it is delish!
Broiled and dipped in butter, it tastes just like lobster without all the work. Kiss it, I don't know, but eat him, yes!
