Sudden Death: 4 Livers!


Mitsugoro Bando VIII, a famous Japanese kabuki actor and designated as one of Japan’s “living national treasures” died in 1975 while tempting fate. While going to a sushi bar with friends he ordered four livers from the fugu, or pufferfish. The livers of the fugu are extremely toxic and sushi chefs are instructed to carefully cut them out before serving the fish. Bando, believing himself to be immune to the poison, died after eating them. The sushi chef lost his restaurant license soon after. —From the Internet
