Fugu relevant? The name of any other fish?

Is the type of article relevant? if yes, was it:
a "best places to go for..."?
an expose'?
a review? (or reviews?)

Fugu relevant? The Art of Fugu? No The name of any other fish? yes

Is the type of article relevant? not really if yes, was it:
a "best places to go for..."? this is closest
an expose'?
a review? (or reviews?) but it would work for the other ones just fine

The word "sushi" relevant? Or a specific type of fish? A Japanese word? English?

I'm guessing a pun is relevant?

so: a specific type of fish appears in the headline?
an 'english word' appears in the headline?
a 'japanese word' appears in the headline?
Are these the only words?
only significant words? (i.e. other than 'the', 'of', 'and', etc.)

the 'english word' = 'type of fish'?
the 'japanese word' = 'type of fish'?
the 'english word' that is relevent sounds like/ is spelt the same as/ means the same as the 'japanese word' that is relevent?

a positive article? a negative article? relevent?

whale meat again -- Love it

Is the fish found in UK waters? Fresh? Saltwater? Is it a carp?

Is the japanese word one that commonly exists in english language e.g. Karaoke? Kamikaze? or is some knowledge of Japanese needed?

Is the fish found in UK waters? apparently so: Wikipedia says they are 'cosmopolitan', which sounds like you'd find them in boutique hotels, but hey Fresh? not as far as I know Saltwater? this one Is it a carp? no

Is the japanese word one that commonly exists in english language e.g. Karaoke? Kamikaze? yes, it's a naturalised English word or is some knowledge of Japanese needed? none whatsoever

An excellent addition to our growing list of pun headlines.

They are brightening up the old plaice don't you think?
