The monkfish may be ugly, but high-end sushi places serve monkfish liver and it's quite tasty (called ankimo). Makes me wonder if any of these other critters is good eatin.'

This reinforces my speciesm in favor of mammals. Some mammals are clearly cuter (lion cubs) than others (hyenas). But there really aren't any horrifyingly ugly mammals.
