Meet “Tosanoides obama”
|HONOLULU -- (HawaiiNewsNow) -When scientists discovered a new species of fish in the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, they noticed a distinctive, colorful spot near the tail that bore a striking resemblance to President Barack Obama’s campaign logo.|
"That’s one of the reasons why they decided to name the species after him."
Here are some other reasons:
1) A small pink fish with yellow stripes on it's back that lays around Hawaii 'chooming' the waters and doing nuthin but reefer. What else COULD you call this fish?
2) The names for the parasitic Lampreys (known for boring into the flesh of other fish to suck their blood) are already taken.
3) These same waters are homes to endangered turtles and endangered monk seals, presumably after Tosanoida-Care was implemented. "If you like your genus, you can keep your genus..."
UPDATE!!! New fish being considered to be named after Michelle.
