Sturgeon Face


I know that a sturgeon is some kind of fish but I didn't know it's also slang for the unfortunate turning down of the corners of the lips to signify disdain, chagrin, or pensiveness.

Here's a page full of pictures of people with sturgeon faces.

Right, I can't believe they left off Spitzer.

Good stuff! I've written about that face before, and I had no idea it had a name.

What about Joe Lieberman? I think he's a perma-sturgeon, in that he has a sturgeon face even when he's smiling.

And let's not forget Mitch McConnell. (Be sure to scroll down to the question "Who's Mitch McConnell's emotional doppelganger?")
