E-merging from my dwelling at around 6:30 this monring I discoverred a dead star fish in the middle of the road. “An odd place for such a fish” I thought to myself.
At the office The Daily Telegraph came to the rescue with an explanation, or rather the lack of one.
“The Environment Agency is investigating the incident but said it was not connected with the recent storms, pollution or climate change.”
Methinks he’s TALKING BOLLOCKS.
So they are investigating but can already say that it is not to do with lots of stuff. I’d add a few more things it’s not to do with:
Tin production in Peru
The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
Billy the Fish, the amusing comic strip
They quote a spokesman named Ian Humphries saying that it is not uncommon for starfish to be washed up on the shore.
I had no idea that star fish had spokesman and was even more surprised to discover that his name was Ian.
Perhaps it was Ian I saw laying in the road this morning. A sad loss to the Sussex Star Fish community.
