Tail end of my lunch break, I thought I’d run through any news stories of the day and catch up on a few things (and start ordering my new computer components). As I was just about to bring up another URL, I caught this story on Yahoo! News: Londoner submits to public fish-slapping.
It was lucky in a way because it was just the other day that I first saw the fish-slapping dance on TV. I don’t know where I saw it, or what I was watching but for the first half (where the right hand guy whacks John Cleese with the small fish) it was the usual Monty Python. But then when Cleese has his payback in hand, whacking the other guy with a huge fish, it cracked me up.
So asides from the giggles I got reading the news story, and then the picture that Yahoo shows with the fairly large fish, I felt sorry for the Londoner (Ben Fillmore). Anyway it is for a good cause (The Stroke Association), so here’s a round of appluase for you Ben.
