Dead Fish Monthly

This is a fake magazine cover...I think but it was posted to a real Flickr group called Dead Fish which features pictures of, well, dead fish.

I actually like the flickr group. Fish skeletons are quite attractive as one of my colleagues can attest. In fact she turned me on to Flickr's Dead Fish group when I was looking for a place to post this picture of a dead fish.
