The "Stargazer Fish"— Worst fish name ever?

If you're going to call a fish a "stargazer", it should have kind of an innocent, star-gazing quality. But THIS is what the stargazer fish actually looks like!
"Mommy? I'm scared!"
What a nightmare! Here's what I think of when I look at that mug:
  1. Zombies
  2. Mummies
  3. Anything but stargazers!
The stargazer fish buries itself in the ocean floor and waits for something to swim by. And if anyone messes with it, the stargazer can give an electric shock!

Oh, did I mention its poisonous spines yet?
