It's beginning to eel a lot like Christmas

The Kamakura Aquarium outside Tokyo has rigged its Christmas display to be powered by a single electric eel. The display is intended to highlight concepts of eco-friendly alternative energy sources. Not everyone is convinced, however.

“It’s humiliating, frankly,” the eel told reporters. “One day I’m swimming around, next thing I’m lighting a frickin’ Christmas tree for Japanese fifth-graders. I can't even tell my parents. They think I’m hunting ribbon worms in the Amazon basin. Hey, Kid! Quit Banging on the glass!”
