Is the caption on my WTF picture of the week. No, I can't find it online. There's a man in jeans, mid-calf in mucky water, holding quite a big fish.

The fish doesn't look that rescued. It looks captured.

It's probably been eaten too!

I hope not!

The bloke hasn't used a line or whatever to catch it, at least. Well, it doesn't look that way.

I hope the trees are OK. the Arboretum in Walsall has some beautiful trees, some are quite rare.

Yeah, it looked like a big carp. It just didn't look rescued.

if it's the same one, they found it swimming in their garden and plonked it in a bucket

Why are there no ships in Walsall?

Becasue the arboretum.

My dh's awful joke he spent 8 years telling when we lived there.

Did you move him? Or divorce him over the joke?

Thankfully we moved.
