Don't know why it instantly brought this back, but..

http://kids.niehs.nih.gov/games/songs/childrens/fishiesmp3.htm

I sang that, onstage, in full wool tuxedo and top hat (complete with onyx cane) and a stage-spanning blacklight backdrop, with three background singers dressed as 'fishies'..  6th grade, methinks..school production circa 1979..  There's video out there (VHS) somewheres..  I rather hope it's never found..

Mind, I did do all the planning fer the stagecraft and was rather proud of the final result..  :P

/completely on-topic, does the word "Ichthyosaur" mean anything to anyone..?  This was news 200mya..  :D

 This is a fish that hunts, pursues, and predates upon a flying animal.

That's an old fish!

It would be weird if it didn't. Little known fact that banjos were invented in Kentucky for use as an instrument at weddings between siblings.

If only the swallow hadn't forgotten its coconut this never would have happened.

This is actually a really well-documented phenomenon. This is a reenactment of a shark attacking a condor.

You need mood music to do it?

Dad and I saw this guy (pike, about a meter long) swimming like this for an extended period.  He dropped back down when I tossed a lure in his direction.  My theory was that he was looking for birds.

/we were fishing on Big Canon Lake, about a 30min float plane ride northwest of Vermillion Bay, ON.

OMFG: Fish jumps out of the water and stays out of the water, doesn't catch anything, just enjoys gliding like a boss.

Whatever, this is very common. This story must have been written by a city boy.

Man catches fish and has fried fishbird that night.

Well, at least we know it was an African swallow instead of a European swallow ... the question is, was it unladen?

That's a cool vlog. I've seen a black/racer snake hang out in front of a cave and catch bats.

/tried to video it
//looked like bad Bigfoot phone video

I've seen a shark snag a swimming pelican.
