Yeah, I edited the description so "mercury" isn't capitalized any more.

You wanna fight about my original error in syntax? COME AT

This still doesn't come close to rivaling the excesses of the late 80s Japanese economic bubble.

I wonder how much money the last tuna will sell for.

The tuna would give one million cockleshells for you, don't you doubt that.

Cockleshells being what they use for currency under the sea, you understand.

The sand dollar being wildly undervalued.

One million cockleshells can buy one headless human for consumption or approximately one million cockles.

If this gives you déjà vu, it's because this story comes up every year at this time. (do a Google search for "most expensive tuna sold")

That's because it's the first auction of the year at Tsukiji (the largest wholesale fish market in Tokyo).

There's a huge market in Japan for raw giant bluefin tuna, called hon maguro. Buyers for very upscale sushi restaurants are purchasing these fish.

Each year, they report the top prices paid for individual fish. (http://homepage3.nifty.com/maryy/eng/records.htm)
