There is great joy in the aquatic world, Neptune is rejoicing! If the governor agrees, the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa will be the State Fish of Hawaii once again. It seems when the Hawaiian legislature named the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa the state fish a few years ago, there was a quirk in the law which allowed the designation to expire. So all the while everyone thought the Humuhumunukunukuapuaa was the state fish, technically it was not. The designation actually expired in 1990. The poor Humuhumu for short, was a Fish Without Title, a Minister Without Portfolio, a King Without a Kingdom and a Prophet Without Honor it its own land. Judging from the photos, the name Humuhumunukunukuapuaa is longer than the fish.

So, happily the title will soon be restored to the lovely Humuhumunukunukuapuaa and all will be well in Neptune's Kingdom.

Why did I post this? I love typing Humuhumunukunukuapuaa.

Happy Humuhumunukunukuapuaa Day to all!
