It has taken far too long, but the Giant Stuffed Blobfish has finally washed up on our fair shores.
Often referred to as the 'Grumpy Cat of the sea', this miserable creature was named the "World's Ugliest Animal" by the Ugly Animal Preservation Society – and rightly so, it looks like a dirty dollop of pink ice cream with a sad mouth stuck on.
Despite its obvious shortcomings in the looks department, there's still something undeniably cute about the Blobfish. In many ways he's a reflection of us all – a cuddly reminder that beauty is only skin/many inches of flab deep.
He'll always be there when you need something massive to throw your arms round, he'll fill the other side of the bed while your loved ones are away – even just looking into his vacant, black eyes (the misery! the pathos! the despair!) is guaranteed to make you feel a hell of a lot better about yourself.
Out there in the real world the Blobfish is sadly on the brink extinction, so ditch that 'sentimental' teddy bear and show some big love for this phenomenal creature today.
