Turning Japan-freeze

japanese-frozen-fish-rinkA Japanese theme park created its own version of “Frozen,” but instead of cutesy animated characters, this event features dead sea creatures.

A Japanese theme park which froze 5,000 sea creatures into the floor of an ice rink was forced to close the attraction on Sunday after a public backlash.

Fish, crabs and other shellfish were embedded in the ice as part of a special winter attraction, called “Freezing Port,” at Japan’s Space World theme park. The park advertised it as a “world first” and posted images of the fish on its official Facebook site with captions including “I am d… d… drowning, s … s… suffocating.”

Space World manager Toshimi Takeda told CNN the park would unfreeze the skate rink to remove the fish, hold an “appropriate religious service” and then reuse them as fertilizer.

Of course, “reuse them as fertilizer” may be translated into “ship them to a Benihana franchise.

  1. Who on earth wants to ice skate over dead sea creatures?? I got a kick out of the ice skating rink owner who said they bought the fish at a fish market and so they were already dead. Still…..who wants to skate over dead fish? I don’t think I could get past the smell. Heaven forbid the ice starts to thaw.
