The fish that looks a bit like a cartoonish old man with fins has officially been voted through the Ugly Animal Preservation Society as the ugliest of the ugly of animals it seeks to protect.
The U.K. group is ”dedicated to raising the profile of some of Mother Nature’s more aesthetically challenged children. The panda gets too much attention.”
The voting process included six acts by comedians who would “humorously champion an endangered ugly species of their choice and convince the audience that their animal should become the society’s emblem.”
