A Fish Called ?


Hard on the heels of Burger King's Allah Ice Cream and Liverpool's Allah and Mohammed fish (yes they have their own website!), Dubai Fish Market now has its own manifestation. Is it a miracle? Or a mackerel? Or a great stencilling job?

Very cool. Hey, I once saw Mickey Mouse head on the side of a cow.

"A fish with markings on it that resemble the word Allah – which means God – created a frenzy among fish traders and visitors to the Dubai fish market yesterday."

I'd really stress on the word 'resemble.' Is it just me, or does anyone else only see a bunch of lines?
I think finding the word Allah on there is a little far-fetched.

a mackeral or a "mock-eral"?
And now what?
They can't it, as that is surely sacrilegious.
Otherwise methinks with a bit of Lurpak it could taste divine.

Hey, don't blame them! .. The mexicans started this whole thing -they see all sort of devine shapes, names and forms on tortillas, burritos and left overs of chilli con carne..

My favourite example of this type of thing is the Danish Pastry that resembled Mother Teresa. Geniuss!

This is up there with the bloke whose flacid penis looks like Florida. I read about it somewhere.

It could well be 'genuine'. There have been a few in the past and it seems people make the markings on a young fish, release it and as it grows so do the markings. There are probably hundreds like it that are never caught.

At least he fish didn't say anything; or did it?

with all due respect to all that deserves it, I do not think that a fish with a few lines is such big news.

I do not believe this is such an amazing manifistation of God.. I'd say the fact that the fish exists is a better example, and also can be understood by every single human, not only those who can read Arabic.

The fish doesn't just have few lines on it. If any of you can read arabic you can clearly see that it's not just a bunch of lines.

And if any of you think it just looks too linear well you should look at how arabic was written in the 7th century.

I think its amazing!!!
