SOMETHING FISHY IN THE LADYGARDEN! Yes my dear ladies and occasional gentleman I must confess to there being something fishy in the LADYGARDEN.
But WHERE was it and more importantly WHAT was it?
I first noticed it in the kitchen and after following the SCENT like a BLOODHOUND, I realised I had to VENTURE further. Into the UTILITY room.
It had a distinctly FISHY AROMA which stopped me DEAD!
Was I FOLLOWING the SCENT or was the SCENT FOLLOWING me?
Oh the RELIEF when I spotted the CULPRITS.
Oh the things you do for your GRANDCHILDREN.
These CACOTOPIA CANCRIFORMS have been removed from the premises!
MR FUCIK’S CARP BURGERS, I don’t fancy them do you?
These are the ASIAN CARP who are SEXY LITTLE BEASTS and have multiplied to such an extent they threaten THE GREAT LAKES of AMERICA.
They were originally introduced to southern US states more than three decades ago to control algal build-up in sewage treatment plants. But they escaped into the Mississippi River and proliferated, making their way north towards the Great Lakes.
I am rather concerned about these fish according to a BBC report, there is a great danger whilst going about your daily business of being slapped in the face by one.
My dear friend Veronica is often CARPING on and sometimes when she is really enthusiastic about something it often feels like a VERBAL slap in the face. But I’d rather have that than a WET FISH any day.
The ENTERPRISING businessman called DIRK FUCIK is producing BURGERS out of them in his DOWNTOWN CHICAGO specialist fish shop. No offense MR FUCIK but I do not think I will be buying any. The idea is to eat the fish out of EXISTENCE and use them as a food resource. Again no offence to my friends ACROSS THE POND but don’t you have enough food resources? Like us BRITS there aren’t many SKINNY people in the USA .
Perhaps these fish could be used to aid HUNGER IN THE THIRD WORLD. Thereby helping to solve two problems at once.
These unusual happenings are often the result of humans interfering with nature and as is quite often the case, the SOLUTION used comes back and SLAPS YOU IN THE FACE.
Which brings me back to my concerns, with all this extra WATER about with the FLOODS I shall be keeping a CARP-EYE out, when out and about just in case.
