Not worth my time. I have stopped viewing BBC2.
At least the fish are British, and are  "jolly happy for that",
There are a lot of dolphins that wish they were British, then perhaps the French and Spanish wouldn't slaughter them
Dolphins are not fish.
You go to Florida and they’ll tell you otherwise. A dolphin sandwich is a lunch staple. Of course, a little further study will reveal that the Florida “dolphin” is in fact mahi-mahi, but that’s neither here nor there. A standard inquiry is: “are you sure no tuna was hurt when they caught this dolphin?”

Oopsy - guilty on all counts! Time to appeal to Trump’s Supreme Court.

I caught a tuna bare-handed a while ago. Big fella. Ok, it was already dead and just floating, with bits of octopus in its mouth. Even swimming and dragging it was quite a workout for me. I was the only person crazy enough to eat it.

Was it, by any chance, the kind of octopus that harbors the very slow acting neurotoxin?

Aaaah. How slow is slow?

I think the octopus was being used as bait. Surely no one would use a poisonous octopus as bait. Would they?

It could have been a Trump quote: “no more fucking lockdowns – let the bodies pile high in their thousands”
Of course, to make sense in that context, it would be hundreds of thousands.
