If there’s any animal that’s in desperate need of a good snuggle, it’s the poor misunderstood Blobfish — so named because it looks like, well, a blob.
In 2013, the blobfish exploded into Internet memedom when it was given the ignoble title of “Ugliest Animal in the World” by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society.
Even though The Smithsonian quickly came to its defense and Michael Hearst featured the blobfish on an episode of Songs for Unusual Creatures, the damage was done.
So, yeah, the blobfish needs a hug. And now, thanks the delightfully pink and much-cuter-than-real-life Blobfish Plush from our good friends at ThinkGeek, you can give it one.
ThinkGeek refers to the blobfish the Grumpy Cat of the Sea — who just so happens to have a plush likeness of her own.
Now the Plush Blobfish may not be to everyone’s liking, but that’s where the Blobfish Truffle comes in.
