    The first 3 fish (from left to right) have the hook in their mouth (it’s hard to see with their heads turned as they are) and the last one has the hook up his butt…. presumably from mistaking the hook for a swing and sitting on it instead of biting it.

    nevermind. didn’t read the top of the comic to see it was just an ouch file comic. Ouch to me…

    No, actually, thanks, because I for one DIDN’T get it. The way their heads are turned it looks like it could all have it on their backs somewhere.

    I’ve caught more than one fish by its dorsal fin, actually.

    Now that eisenhomer mentioned it, it does look like the first three have it in their mouth, but it still doesn’t look like the last one has it in his butt…

    The last fish shouldn’t be SITTING on his injury, he should be laying flat with the hook’s point of entry visible. If that had been done, and the other three had had the hook in the OTHER SIDE of their mouths, all would have been clear.

    I wonder if the syndicate had something to say about the artist not doing that?

    A fish won’t do anything but swim in a brook
    He can’t write his name or read a book
    To fool the people is his only thought
    And though he’s slippery he still gets caught
    But if then that sort of life is what you wish
    You may grow up to be a fish.

    Or would you like to swing on a hook, I mean star

    Mark in Boston turned this from an ewww to an LOL for me.

    Why would it be worse to have a hook in your butt than in your mouth.

    Oops, I should have ended with a question mark instead of a period.
