Waxing Nostalgic

It was about one year ago this week that the Asian Northern snakehead fish (Channa argus was discovered in a pond in Crofton, Maryland, and people all over the country were saying "What's a snakehead?" Since then, the jumping, air-breathing fish has extended its fifteen minutes of fame as the subject of a Top Ten list on Late Night with David Letterman, a book, the star of the cheesy sci-fi film "Snakehead Terror" (okay, I haven't seen it, but I'm guessing it's like the movie where the giant alligators roam the sewer system), and the inspiration for this line of clothing. The icing on the fishcake? A snakehead fillet entree at Uncle Nicky's Pit Beef and Ribs in Crofton, imported frozen of course. Read more in this article from The Capital.
