Too much turkey yesterday?

Perhaps this fish, trawled up from the depths off the coast of New Zealand, resembles how you feel after all of the holiday feasting you did this Thanksgiving. The fish, a Fathead (genus Psychrolutes), has been affectionately named, "Mr. Blobby" by the scientists who found him. That's not drool dripping from Blobby's mouthparts, but rather a parasite.
