A man phones his wife and asks, “Honey I’ve been asked to go fishing in China with my boss for a week. This is a good opportunity for me to get the promotion. Could you please pack enough clothes for a week, set out my rod and fishing box. We’re leaving from office and I’ll swing by the house to pick my things. Oh, please pack my new blue silk pyjamas!”
The wife felt there was something fishy in her husband’s story, but since she was a good wife she listened to her husband and did exactly as he told her.
After a week the husband returned home, looking a bit tired but happy to have done a good job. The wife immediately started asking about the weekend, how it was, if he’d caught any fish and so on.
The husband said, “Yes, Lots of salmon, blue gill and a few swordfish. But why didn’t you pack my blue silk pyjamas?”
To which the wife responded, “I did. They were in your fishing box.”
In the famous severed horse head scene in The Godfather they originally were going to use a swordfish.
It didn’t really fit in with the marlin brand-though.
The swordfish has no natural predators …
Except the penfish, which I’ve been told is even mightier.
What did the marlin say to the swordfish?
You’re looking sharp.
