ultraholland: if anyone wants to join, we're gonna smoke some trout under the bleachers at halftime.

I don't like subjecting others to my second-hand smoke, so I've switched to chewing mackerel, instead.

Slapping is OK too

So putting fish oil in e-cigarettes is a thing now?

You can tune a piano, but you can't tune a fish.

Metabolize oxygen with a herring? IT can't be done!

Ah, the bizarre problems caused by modern processing methods.

She found workers had high exposure to the fish particles, and attributes this to the filleting machines and high-pressure cleaning jets casting particles into the air.

Maybe old methods are the best.

Fun fact: herring swim in large schools. To confuse and avoid predators, they will release a stream of bubbles at regular intervals to create a bubble cloud, kind of a primitive cloaking device. These bubbles are called Frequent Repetitive Ticks, or FRTs.

Ichthyologists have a sense of humor.

Lumberjacks who use herrings are not okay.

And the boxes make good sandals. Don't forget about that.

I blame the jam-packed schedule -- hard to fit in a big Swedish breakfast between exercise, swimming and dancing, and sex.
