Not So Fresh Water Fish


Like to have a pedicure done by piranha? Well you can get pretty close in Washington D.C. where carp are all the rage.

Story.

Apparently they moved away from using razors because it was "unsanitary." Poor, poor fish. If you thought the smell of nail polish remover was strong, I'd hate to imagine what this fancy foot fish place reeks like.

these are actually really popular in korea. they are called "doctor fish". you go to a place... order some tea and snacks and soak your feet in the fish tank. while you eat and chat with your friends, the doctor fish clean your feet.

It seems like the more natural way to go, but its a little gross in concept no?

Is it just me?

Mutations occur abruptly, especially in quick breeding creatures like fish. Aren't we toying with evolution here running the chance that we will promote a fish with a taste for human flesh?

A little paranoid perhaps?

This is super gross. But I would totally try it. I like what Ryan commented. Drinking tea and eating snacks while chatting with buddies and not have to talk to the nail clerk about my life is awesome :)
I wonder if they can ever bite too much. What would happen then?

Well, they don't have teeth, but if they ever mutate and grow some, they would become popular with the bishes and then what?!?
