Lies make the world an easier place.

I was vegetarian for over 11 years, and it really only changed when I boarded a flight to England and realized I am an emotional eater, thereby stuffing anything - and basically everything edible - in my mouth, including something that may once have been roaming a paddock or river.

Since then, the Chef has been attempting feeding me chicken and fish, under the pretence they don't actually bleed.

I just watched Life In Cold Blood, David Attenboroughs last documentary, and I SAW A FISH BLEED.

Even though, subconsciously, I sort of knew they probably did, I kind of assumed they bled silver fluid, like the unicorns from Harry Potter.

I. Am. Never. Eating. Fish. Again.

We watch "Dirty Jobs" on Discovery Channel (do you get that show down there?) and once, Mike Rowe did something with sharks. I don't remember WHAT he was doing, but Lord was it bloody. I don't know where I'm going with that...but I like your idea of fish bleeding silver.
