Year of the Takeout Day 168: Fish Sausage?
It's a sex toy! It's a dynamite stick! It's a... fish sausage?

They come two for $1 at some Chinatown grocery stores, and should be served at room temperature. They have the mouthfeel of lukewarm string cheese and taste like fish ball and can best be described as the seafood equivalent of a Slim Jim: perplexingly yummy.
