$100K For Sushi Is A Whale Of A Tale

In addition to liking tequila, I also like sushi. A lot. So I couldn't pass up this story about a bluefin tuna going for a hundred grand at auction.

TOKYO - Two sushi bar owners paid more than $100,000 US for a Japanese bluefin tuna at a Tokyo fish auction Monday, about ten times the average price and the highest in nearly a decade, market officials said.
The 128-kilogram premium tuna caught off the northern coast of Oma fetched 9.63 million yen ($104,700 US), the highest since 2001, when another Japanese bluefin tuna brought an all-time record of 20 million yen, market official Takashi Yoshida said.

Two things:

2) Yummy!
