No, the incident where George Bush threw up in the lap of the prime minister of Japan was never linked to Puffer fish. He just had an upset stomach.
Puffer fish are extremely poisonous if prepared the wrong way. If George Bush had ingested bad puffer fish, by the time he was vomiting, he would have been suffering severe other symptoms, possibly even paralysis.
