Fishy story indeed
« on: 11/03/2009 14:41:13 »
A Philadelphia pet store expecting to get a delivery of fish ended up getting a human corpse. Mark Arabia who owns the Pets Plus store said he eventually learned that the body he got was that of a 65-year-old San Diego-area man. The body was meant to go to a laboratory in for medical research. US Airways released a statement saying the problem was caused by a "verbal miscommunication between a delivery driver and the cargo representative." The airline said it's deeply sorry.

It is believed the fish died as a result.

So he got a John Doe instead of a John Dory

John Dory (Zeus Faber)

Easy mistake to make!

Is that meant to be "slippery as 'ell" (as in 'slippery as hell') or is the water going a bit FOGGY and it should be "slippery as an eel".

He is probably playing the hag (fish) - slippery as all the mucous can be. Very primitive.
