Tacoma's Fubbo The Hut Mistaken For An Australian/Tasmanian Blobfish
I do see the resemblance, but I am almost 100% this is not actually Fubbo the Hut.
For one thing, I've not heard anything about Fubbo being bald.
Fubbo the Hut has recently been caught, again, doing her creepy stalking thing. I think just about anyone on the planet would empathize with how unsettling it would be to have something that looks like Fubbo the Hut stalking them.
What the sad-looking creature in the photo actually is, is a Blobfish. Now, I can clearly see how one might use the word "Blobfish" to refer to Fubbo the Hut. But a Blobfish is actually a real fish.
Blobfish float along the ocean floor off the coasts of Australia and Tasmania, surviving by eating whatever drifts in front of it.
Okay, that is one more eerie similarity to Fubbo the Hut, who also eats whatever drifts in front of it.
