The Cormorant Fish

I am now an ornithologist. After lunch I spend twenty minutes studying the cormorant off Penzance beach. I have come up with an astonishing conclusion:

The cormorant is in fact a fish. He spends 80% of his life (40 seconds at a time) below water and only 20% of his time (10 seconds) above water.

QED

  1. And they taste nice. Consistency of turkey, but flavour of fish. Lewis-men eat anything.

    Well done on day 1, Alan. Downhill all the way from now on.
