Now there was a man
Who swallowed a fish
Which wriggled and slithered and fought back inside him
Oh what a dish
To swallow a fish
Now there was a man
Who swallowed a bird
How absurd to swallow a bird

I like Andy William's version of the theme from the film The Codfather myself.

Saw the story yesterday Rollo - man nearly died when he caught a little Dover Sole which got stuck in his throat. :-( :-D

As a cyclist, I 'enjoy' a regular intake of pesky flies that carelessly cross the path of my wide open mouth - or is it I who crosses their God-given ways! :-S

Few expletives are exchanged as I charge on trying to hang on in the slip-stream of bemused & unsympathetic fellow cyclists.

Some people will kiss anything before ditching them - and he said he would kiss fish again! :-0

Maybe he should close his mouth when fish kissing :-)
