Something Fishy

Don't ever say Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration doesn't know how to serve up a banquet

Mystic Aquarium & Institute for Exploration held a special Penguin Party Wednesday, celebrating the determination that its two new chicks are both boys, the facility said.
In case anyone thinks the cake looks enticing, the institute reports that it is a three mold jello variety, "with a delicious squid topping and several layers containing yummy capelin fish." The base of the cake had traditional vanilla frosting, the institute said.

The news, however, is not all good: the penguins were less than enthusiastic about the cake, the institute reports. It also noted "the seagulls however were more than willing to try it but then again, seagulls will eat anything."
