When you go travel to Russia and feel some hunger – you might want to buy some canned tuna or herring for your sandwich.
Beware. You can buy something like this. It was in canned “Atlantic Herring” dish.
It is still alive !!!
In soviet Russia, Herring eats you!
1st of all I would be scared ****less if I saw that in a can. 2nd it’s not Soviet Russia anymore and not the Russian Federation. It’s name is just plainly Russia. Why do I make the distinction and make this into a big thing-I have no idea.
its a joke.
“In Soviet Russia…something opposite happens” is an old running joke in the geek community.
In Soviet Russia, the joke gets you!
No, it’s a bunch of people copying Yakov Smirnoff.
I know, the Wikipedia article mentions him as the originator for the joke. Doesn’t change the fact that it’s a running joke in the geek community.
First of all, get a sense of humor.
Holy Croc!!! There’s an alligator in that can. Someone should call Steve Irwin…oh wait Toooo Sooon.
But what is it ? Why didn’t the photographer take it out so we can look it in the eye ?
low quality fake :O
Not so fast. I had 2 cousins who worked at KFC and they actually deep fat fried a rat that was in the chicken box. Go figure. The problem with processing food is not the handlers (in essence) but more the demand put on them to keep up with quotas the company puts on them and this **** does slip through.
Melissa, did you go to Drake?
Looks like “Genna Crocodile” from “Chiburaska” cartoon. I guess there will be no more cartoons.
Ahhh …. so That’s why dental care in russia is so cheap.
Anybody who can read a little Russian will know it’s exactly what is printed on the can: “Chupacabra”
No more fish! Only McDonalds!
РЕБЯТ, тупо для своих – это чё этта, а?
Модер, сотри это всё, кэш тупит…
ага пиЗДеЦ какой ТО о_0
Это рыба, а не то, что вы подумали.
Not a fake, but salmon leftover heads canned by mistake.
Problem is that it is easily faked by adding those bits in after the can is open.
Mind, impressive set of teeth it has!
Oh that’s just crazy !
that is so not real
but what is chupacabra btw?
Chupacabra is a fictional “monster” (like bigfoot or yeti) made popular by Art Bell (Coast-To-Coast).
Also known as something you could have searched on the Internet instead of posting the question on the Internet. Get smarter, people!
Don’t be insolent.
Congratulations, you are citing a site that allows anybody with access to the internet to define a word. If I go on there and add qwertfhdsjk as a word, it doesn’t make it one in the extended english language.
it’s a dolphin’s jaw
It is actually quite possible for this to be legitimate, because if you look at the teeth they seem to be degraded from the cooking process. That is also why he probably didn’t remove it entirely from the can, because it would have fallen apart as he did so.
lol@smart guy using “your” for “you’re” whilst chastising someone for their English skills.
No. He was wrong. Definitely wrong.
fish evolving into reptiles
In Soviet Russia, fish eats you!
P.S: Is it a coicindence that the anti-spam captcha was “kgb”?
So, did you eat it?
Uh yeah, i agree that the thing depicted is mor elikely a fake. Looks good though.
Damn, that looks like that chick I took home from the bar the other night. I was wondering what happened to her…
It appears to be a sea lamprey. Its a fish that will attach itself to the side of another chew a small hole and basically suck on it blood until the fish dies. Very nasty creature.
I also like to know what I eat. What kind of animal is this?
It is definitely not a Lamprey. This is how the teeth of the (jawless and boneless) Lamprey look like: http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/~youson/images/lamprey.jpg
Furthermore, on one of the pics you can see parts of the spine.
A Dolphin it can’t be either as they have far smaller teeth which are placed really close together in the yaw and are enclosed in the yaw itself.
The teeth, yaw morphology and skin texture look like that of a shark. Another hint that it could be a shark is that the cuts in the nose reveal white cartilaginous flesh.
Sharks are known to pray on herring and they regularly get caught in fishermen nets.
The round shape of the teeth are not shark-like though, shark teeth are mostly triangular with a very pronounced texture to catch the prey and they have multiple rows of them…
So, it is CHUPACABRA! Fortunately, there are ninjas to kill chupacabras that swim in the sea. Unfortunately, Selma Hayek was taken for a chupacabra in disguise
this site’s comments were WAY funnier than any of the photos!
p.s. my anti-spam word was “vodka” – i no lie either
Lampreys do not have jaws. It’s a male salmon (during mating season) their jaws extend and grow large teeth in order to move around gravel and stones to make nests for spawning.
And dolphin jaw? really?
i was required to enter an anti-spam word to post a message. the word i had to type was “russian”. i no lie.
My anti-spam word was vodka! HAHA!
and michael richards
Yea , I agree with the other guy ” why didn’t they take it out of the can so we can get a good look at the adledged ” Herring” I come from Russo-german herritage and there was a lot of hearing eating going on at those big racus family get to gethers.
And not once did I see a herring with teeth . Why if that happeded at one of our festivities , for uncle Kostias would shoot the dam thing. Teeth Indeed
Leyland Austrian Of Bay City
Maybe it is just a vampire herring!
After seeing the spam words posts. I just had to state what mine is:
As someone already mentioned earlier on, it’s the head of a salmon:
Not a fake, but salmon leftover heads canned by mistake.
id almost say it looks somewhat like a small alligator or crocodile. the teeth look to big to be salmon. especially those front ones. to me, it looks like the crooked teeth and irregular flesh around the teeth could be from a reptile.
of course, i have no idea if alligators or crocs even live around russia.
HINDI TIME! break it down! *tabla solo*
im with ya Rusky, and i aint even an american..
You know, there IS some internet in Russia! Why not to speak Russian? Так ведь?
I’ve got a title for this. The Hunt for the Red Herring.
But…does it blend?
hahaha, is there anything on that show that doesn’t…?
hahaha, is there anything on that site that DOESN’T?
I don’t think that was Christ Jesus in that rock, I’m pretty sure it was George Washington himself. And that canned alligator is the scariest ass thing I’ve ever seen.
i think its the lochness monster
That ain’t jesus. It’s George Washington!
Looks like the snout of an alligator gar, or other gar fish, to me.
Y0U G07Z PWND S4CK5ZZ!! PH35R 73H 1337N3SS!! ZOMG N00BS!!
You got that right Friggin wigga kid!
wow i wasnt even gonna post a comment, then i saw that my anti spam word was soviet, and considering the whole, RUSSINS WANNA KILL AMERICANS thing, i just felt the need to let everyone no
and yes galatine, the internet IS for porn…..just look here
link didnt seem to come through…..o well just go here
C’mon, obviously it’s a herring caught in the Chernobyl area. Haven’t you seen those before? You should see their chickens…
The entire food-in-cans industry tried to prevent the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. from coming out, because it revealed where all the weird food came from. Now you know.
Oh yeah, btw, they also serve it to you when you take an Aeroflot plane.
in is impossible that we see on these photos. it is provocation on Russia sea-industry. we can put everithing in open jar to do different photos and to say that it is right that you see. I eat fish and I have never seen nothing idintical.
It is provocation!!!!!!!
[...] Atlantic Herring Is Going Wild [nw] :: English Russia – wow .. snapper in a can [...]
What is my captcha word
YUM, delicious canned headcrabs…
puke on my shoes
Anybody notice the edge of the can? Do they not have can openers in Russia?
What kind of animal is this?
I believe these are photos of the snouts of male Chum Salmon. The male Chum Salmon grow pretty hideous sets of teeth as they prepare to spawn, and they do so even while still out in the ocean.
Chum salmon are usually referred to as DOG SALMON in Alaska – and you can see why.
I’m not an ichthyologist, but this is what I believe them to be.
Somebody in a fish cannery was having a little fun. Yep – here’s a good match to the photo:
Like was said before, salmon jaw http://www.pbase.com/pogopens/image/32562344
If you look on the side of the can, it has salmon fillets anyway.
It’s a jaw from a chum salmon. Which is why we call them gators when they are spawned out and half dead. They don’t normally have huge teeth until their gums recede during spawning. Usually they go into cat food when they are that bad, but I guess not in Russia.
OMAGAD! you people are all missing it, the upper jaw is a tooth pick for after your tasteh meal xD
i love trolls. thank you
I thought everyone was just trying to AVOID getting to the “meat” of the discussion.
o.O seriously looks like canned boa constrictor to me, gross!
ffs! that stuff looks disgusting! >_< more like canned baby croc. YUCK! xP
puani..ths mamas sou to mouni, malaka…
The Chinese wouldn’t be the slightest bit upset with jaws like that. ‘Mmmm, gimme summa flied lice wiff that pleese.’
I’m with Max – that’s a picture of SALMON on the wrapper of the can, not herring. Where they originally got the idea that it was herring, I dunno. It does look like a set of male salmon jaws, too.
EWw…. doesn’t look that it will give me good appetite.
Sabre Toothed Herring, Russia is awesome!!!
