“It was this big!” Here’s a picture of a Japanese restaurateur fundamentally misunderstanding the ‘using arms to boast about fish size’ gesture. As you can see, this 212kg tuna renders the ‘hug me daddy’ move redundant.
The price tag proved appropriately hefty. Kiyoshi Kimura, who runs the Sushi Zanmai chain, paid 74.2 million yen (about £525,000) for the Pacific bluefin beast at auction last week.
Overfishing is threatening the tuna’s survival, so keep practising that gesture, Kiyoshi!
