The fish finger fish
Not quite sure what this says about the modern world. So, some scientists decided to test children on which species of fish they could name. Excellent: but 10% of the responses included the "fish finger fish" which was a bit of a surprise.
In fact, the fish finger fish was the third most popular species named over all.
So, the scientists did what such would do and made little models of fish finger fish and....stuck them in hte aquarium at the museum. So that children could ask parents whether they were really real and parents could explain that, no, they were models, it was a joke....
Quite what happens with the parents who go "Gosh, I never knew there was a fish finger fish" I'm not quite sure....
