To all:

I came back from a trip to Greece a few weeks ago and really thought I'd share this with you. Maybe this would interest the OMS people more, it kinda reminds me of the cases they show us in surgical case presentations... enjoy.

P.S. This is some type of fish they have over there, it had incisors the size of a small child! Man, I did get excited when I saw the size of those centrals. It did go through my mind if I'd be able to use a central for the WREB endo portion ;).

It looks like it was served with lemon and green pepper. Was it anygood? I'd be careful using it on a board exam. It probably has multiple canals with blunderbust apices. :laugh:

Plus, it looks like the owner thoughtlessly put tetracycline in the aquarium while fishmomma was pregnant.

That has got to be the worst fish I have ever seen.

Did you eat that person??? His "grill" sure would make one hell of a characterized denture, though!!!

I eat that fish all the time. It is like between lamb and tuna. Sometimes I use the teeth in my denture set up. Excellent choppers. DP

So basically some confused or bored lamb mounted up on an unsuspecting tuna, resulting in this beast of a Man-Fish???

Good God, I'm headin' for the doors!!!

Haha,

It was actually quite tasty. People at the table liked the fish so much they worked their way through those choppers to eat the "cheek meat"! Now that's kinda weird.

I asked a greek in my class about it and she said it's called a "sargos" or a white seabream. It's similar to a porgy fish that's caught throughout the caribbean. Showed it to some OS guys here at school, fooled them pretty good... until they noticed the "tumor-resection" specimen was placed on a paper towel for the picture... then again, maybe the lemon gave it away. :)
