Ever seen a fish fish? No no?. Well say hello to the anglerfish, a disgusting looking denizen of the deep that actually fishes for other fish.

Thetis, a gorgeous Greek goddess of the sea, was courted by several high-ranking gods including Zeus, Poseidon and Gordo son of Bacchus. But due to your basic Greek curse-de-jour she was condemned, like most women, to marry a mere mortal man.
