The Nasrallah Fish

Sometimes it just doesn't make any sense to try to comment on a story because it's already too bizarre to deserve a comment. This Hizbullah report about a "Nasrallah fish" threatening Israel (or, as Hizbullah almost alone still refers to it in what almost — but not quite — inspires nostalgia, the "Zionist Entity") pretty much defies comment. Sarcasm and snarky commentary don't work when the original is beyond parody.

It looks like a catfish to me. Fry it up, maybe some hushpuppies . . .
