They think it might have been one of these, a Sunfish or Mola Mola. Not only is the sunfish the world's heaviest bony fish, with some individuals weighing in at a staggering 2.3 tonnes, but it also possesses a truly bizarre body shape, likened to a gigantic 'swimming head'. The sunfish has no tail, with the caudal fin reduced to a rudder-like structure, called the clavus.
With a head like that it could run and win for Parliament. I was watching the Great Barrier Reef last night, might as well while we still have it and this object likes to swim up to the warm waters and have smaller fish chew off its parasites then swims down to the colder waters again.
See, I told you, Parliament. The Front benchers crawl after the back benchers when they want a vote then piss them off when they don't need them.
Anybody watch the 17 hours of the Ghan? I could only suffer that from inside the train with unlimited booze and food and a good book. The night before I watched the last five minutes which was absolutely riveting. Driver's voice and a mile back down the track, another voice, counting off the carriages as they drew into the station, right down to the last 6 feet. I tried another channel and got the cricket and near died of excitement.
Do try and watch the news tonight and do not switch off when Barmy Joyce rattles on about the inland rail which he talks about as though he is going to personally lay every block of wood along the entire length while carrying a rail on each shoulder. Just keep your eyes on the 'tit fer tat', it is hilarious. A giant orange pumpkin sitting on a smaller beady eyed pumpkin, nay not so much orange as neon glow orange or maybe it was yellow, my eyes were beginning to glaze over.
Now he's involved in the usual bunfight about Australia Day, honestly the man is a multi-tasking mouth. I'm sorry I couldn't find a photo but I think the Mola Mola deserves its moment in the sun, alone.
