    Default Dolphin are now fish?!!!

    See if you can spot the error. Sheesh. Well now that I think
    of it, dolphin are fish. They swim and basically live in the
    water. They behave mostly like fish. Except for breathing
    air out of water they are fish. Just because they don't have
    gills is no reason not to eat them. I eat other stuff that
    doesn't have gills, so why not dolphin?

    You're confusing the porpoise, a mammal sometimes called, erroneously, a
    dolphin with the actual fish dolphin, aka mahi mahi and also by the
    following names dependent upon where in the world you are, rakingo,
    calitos, maverikos, dorado. Methinks you already knew that.

    A quaint medieval Lenten notion! Some so-called "dolphins" are fish and
    some are mammals but they are not the same beasts at all! That's why the
    fish dolphins are often called "mahi-mahi" these days.

    There's no fooling you guys.

    Why do you bother explaioning things to an obvious troll?

    Do yourselves and us a favor and add "George Orwell" to your
    killfiles. And "Nomen Nescico" while you're at it.

    Let me add another little historical item. In medieval times, to the
    benefit of "nobles" and monks, sycophantic clergy decided that beavers
    and ducks were "fish" because they lived in water and even dived below.
    Thus they could be eated during the Lenten "Fast".

    I always thought it was hilarious to say that a day without meat was a
    "fast". It's not that long ago in historical terms when a sizable
    fraction of the population could only afford meat a few times per year.

    Equally hilarious is when someone claims to be a "vegitarian" yet still
    eats fish. Fish is cut form an animal and is thus meat.

    I add the whole domains of the remailers. I should probably
    change these to "Ignore" rather than "Delete" so I don't see any
    of the regular morons responding, either.

    -1 message-id googlegroups
    !delete message-id mixmaster.it
    !delete message-id foodbanter.com
    !delete message-id dizum.com
    !delete message-id ax.lt
    !delete message-id ecn.org

    (There's more but I'm currently rebuilding the list from scratch)

    ObFood: Now that chicken breasts are falling out in favor of
    chicken thighs, when will they invent chicken with little boobs
    and big thighs?
