The dapper old man with white wispy hair

  • The dapper old man with white wispy hair and ruddy cheeks whistled cheerfully as he walked through the park, handing out handbills for

  • the Siamese fighting fish which, as the handbill advertised, were up to 6.5cm in length! It was the annual tournament and the fish had been gathered from all over the world.

  • The Siamese fighting fish were collected from conquered lands and brought to the Colosseum. The mob wanted to see blood sport.

  • As the Colosseum was filled with water, the gladiators readied their rowboats in the wings, making final preparations for their fight with the seventy seven Siamese fighting fish.

  • Each of the 77 conjoined fighting fish had their own personality & excelled in a different fish martial art. Some fish were constrained by their position on the conjoined fish in p

  • part due to their unusual anatomy. These fish wanted to clobber the rest of the people out of the competition, but detachment surgery was dangerous for fish.

  • Plus it would probably be to costly for the fish to afford detachment surgery. They also are very clumsy so they might detach the wrong organs.

  • You don't want to have to deal with a fish who has had the wrong organs detached. It is not pleasant. A leading surgeon recently had his face eaten off by one of them. They're that

  • vicious. In fact fish with the wrong organs detached are among the most dangerous species on the planet. The flying ones in particular, which can often

  • lead to the ending of their stories. Flying fish or not, all stories ended when there was nobody to share them anymore. Others would come though. Others would come.

    Amazing! An actually coherent story! A shame we never found out who won the tournament though.
