i dream of gifelte fish

I know I posted about the talking fish last night, but I've become a bit obsessed about it.

Many believe the carp was channelling the troubled soul of a revered community elder who recently died; others say it was God. The only witnesses to the mystical show were Zalmen Rosen, a 57-year-old Hasid with 11 children, and his co-worker, Luis Nivelo. They say that on 28 January at 4pm they were about to club the carp on the head when it began yelling.

So last night I dreamed that Mr. Limpet - who had the face of Saddam Hussein - was about to be clubbed to death by the Broccoli Boys when the fish started screaming "Soylent Green is PEOPLE!"

That's gonna stay with me all day.

I dreamed about being in a strange circular airport of some obscure Scandinavian country, looking for the particular ATM that would validate my lunch ticket so that I could go back to the Brass Key club and have lunch with my friends.

I think you win.

"Gifite Fish is PEOPLE!!!"
From a fish's point of view.

This whole story reminds me of the Simpsons episode where they go to Japan and end up working at the Osaka Seafood Concern. There's this scene where Bart is gutting fish, and this one fish says "If you spare my life, I will grant you riches!" and he guts it anyway.
