    This fish didn't have a chance. A rainbow trout pulled out of Holmes Lake last weekend had double the chance to get hooked: It had two mouths.

    Clarence Olberding, 57, wasn't just telling a fisherman's fib when he called over another angler to look at the two-mouthed trout. It weighed in at about a pound.

    "I reached down and grabbed it to take the hook out, and that's when I noticed that the hook was in the upper mouth and there was another jaw protruding out below," said Olberding.

    He said in his 40 years of fishing, he's never seen anything like it.
    Don Gabelhouse, head of the fisheries division of the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, said a two-mouthed fish was new to him, too.

    "It's probably a genetic deformity," he said. "I don't think there's anything wrong with it."

    The second mouth didn't appear to be functional, Olberding said. He has plans for the fish, which don't included mounting.
    "I'm going to smoke it up and eat it," he said.

    I was already missing your wise comments, for sure you have done "more important" activities past day than give your well-respected and professional comment on this thread!:p :D

    One small problem: knowing you, i can't imagine what the "more important" activities are!:D :D :D :D

    LOL Chise, but I see one slight problem here. Are you sure you weren't giving the 'Troopettes' an excuse to make you the burnt turkey?

    Well I wasn't meaning that the "Troopettes" under the excellent training of Lt. Col. Marj didn't have enough ammunition already. Look at the way BB beat his brains out in post 3 and 5, and didn't even pick up a gun? :eek:

    Such answers like yours are the reason why i really like the ten-forward threads!;)

    A thread is starting f.e. with the subject "do you like your mother-in-law" (i not!!!!!!), and is ending with something as "my dog is ten years old, color black and hetero"....:D :D :D

    A rare two-headed live snake was in the news this week after an aquarium said it wanted to put it up for auction for $150,000. What was its name?

    A: Janus


    B: We


    C: Four Eyes


    D: Cocheese

    The World Aquarium in St Louis, US, said it wanted to sell the albino rat snake to pay for education, conservation and research programmes.
