Age-old Addage

Candied sent me this link.

This bad boy was pulled from the Congo River. It's a tiger fish, and it proves that age-old addage: Don't Swim in the Congo River.

Thanks for the photo, Candied.

I did a google image search on this thing and my suspicions are confirmed: this thing is scary from every angle.

I have swum in the Congo River and I just went back in time and pooped my swimsuit.

I've seen pictures of this crazy fishie before and just, DANG. Didn't we see those jaws in, "The Princess Bride."

Why is it the nastiest looking things awlways come from Africa or Australia? ;)

Chuckles, I envy your time traveling skills. I also think you used them for a good purpose in this instance.
