Who says fish only go in pants?

Actually, I think it was John Maynard Keynes in "The Economic Consequences of Mr. Churchill". Or maybe it was Falco.

...officials were alerted by "flipping" noises coming from beneath her skirt as she arrived at Melbourne airport.

anything to declare ma'am?

nothing sir. just some dirty clothes in my suitcase... *flip, flip*

what's that sound?

nothing sir, just some gurgling in my stomach from some bad meat i ate. *flip, flip*

it sounds like tropical fish to me. walter, come over here. what's that sound like to you?

topical fish. no doubt about it. she must have swallowed them.

*dons latex glove*

no, no, i admit it. i've got an aquarium under my skirt.

"Who says fish only go in pants?"

evidently no one, according to Google..."Your search - "fish only go in pants" - did not match any documents."

Why did you ask?

That apron is a hot new accessory. I've been looking for the perfect gift for my wife's birthday. Now I know just what to get. Thanks caddis!

I thought this was going to be some surrealist joke:

How many fish go in your pants?


(Yeah, I don't think it's funny either.)

I was suspecting metachat.

That's *exactly* the scenario that was playing out in my head, ThreeBlindMice...

i'm australian, and i'll tell you i've seen a few girls about with salmon in their pants. farmed i think, not wild. usually just one at the front, but occasionally one fore and one aft.

they didn't make flipping noises though. they were sedentary and mournful, like the tanks in a chinese restaurant.

"Topical Fish" would be a great name for a blog.

madamejujuive, I will be more cautious with the next blouse into which I attempt entry. I'm fearing nightmares somehow. But I may otherwise deposit pilchards about my person.

I dunno, OmnieWise, I think that's pretty good.

I suddenly have the strongest urge to quit my job, run away and become an international fish smuggler.

Of course I'll have to start wearing kilts

Good thing she wasn't smuggling kittens. Ow.

HuronBob isn't paying attention.

She should have worn fishnets with that.

Little joke there.

Huh, I would've thought they'd be tipped off by the smell.
