Love is in the air

I got an email today pointing out that Valentine's Day was rapidly approaching and suggesting that it was a time for 'an extravagant gesture'.

All I can say is if you really cannot surpass the experience of eating a mouthful of fish eggs then you really just don't get out enough. matey. And if The Fish Society think that image is going to boost sales of sturgeons roe for Valentine's Day they are very much mistaken.

Now if they'd used THIS caviar image...
