    Apparently, piranhas can be cannibals, but only if another piranha is sick or injured. Meh.

    It doesn’t have to be cannibalism. Skeletonizing any large animal is a lot of hard work, especially if the clan expects to achieve the often quoted “two minute cow”.

    With their bugged-out eyes and down-turned mouths, the fish look stressed to me. The dialog implies that this is not their normal appearance.

    To me, it looks like they are all farting. Might that have something to do with it? Probably not, but still…it does look that way.

    I was figuring they were each stressed because they were worried about being eaten by a relative when they all got together. That’s the same stress I used to have when my Uncle Jack came to family dinners, because he always targeted one or more relatives for random torrents of verbal abuse. If it’s supposed to be just the stress of devouring a cow in 2 minutes, then it’s a double “meh” for me.

    When piranhas eat, it’s sometimes called a feeding frenzy. That might account for the churned up water behind them. Perhaps the artist is equating frenzy with stress.

    I would think a feeding frenzy would be quite stressful… if you don’t get in there, there won’t be anything left over for you, and there’s always a chance that you’ll get bitten if you get too close. Plenty of stress.

    It just dawned on me — the fish are complaining because they had to eat a whole family at once, which was stressful.

    I hereby second The Vicar’s motion (@8).
