April 11, 2007: Swan feeds carp
Sheldonrs Wednesday Apr 11 12:55 PM
This is actually caused by a fairly common condition that forces the the Swan to regurgitate it's food into the fishes' mouths.

Here's a video of a baby duck feeding carp.

I wonder if the swan lost its babies, and feels compelled to continue its mothering instincts. But with fish? Why not with a cute panda, or something?

This isn't anything gone "wrong" or that strange. I've seen pics over the years of birds feeding koi or carp. It's simple mothering instinct. Birds are conditioned to drop food into any gaping, begging mouth. They will even feed people.

Why just last night a medium sized chicken fed 2 adults and one child, with enough left over for 1 more adult to have lunch today.

Maybe they are kissing.

looks more like the swan is smelling them - maybe its trying to tell them they have B.O.

Then again, maybe he's a gynocologist.
littlenickyer Wednesday Apr 11 06:54 PM
I'm pretty sure that's the wrong end...

oh good lord

(oh crap! Why don't I just lay down in the street and wait for the next truck?!!!)

too bad it may be your last joke

I don't get why the swan doesn't eat the fish. Maybe it's not part of their diet, but birds eat fish no doubt. Plus those fish look delicious, in my opinion.
littlenickyer Wednesday Apr 11 07:27 PM
I'm pretty sure swans eat grasses and smaller fish - the carp might be too big

Carp taste like crap.

They're alright bled and cooked in beer Ali.
Aliantha Thursday Apr 12 05:44 AM
the flesh is still sloppy and 'muddy' tasting though. As a food source, they're ok, but there's lots of other fish that tastes good without even trying.

Bravo!! I love a good pun, but the groaners like these are a rare treat. Brilliant.
