That depends; would it forestall Nixie turning me into a fish and throwing me in with Wally?Did you mean honour?
Or are you returning to something more akin to this website's porpoise, and thus referring to Honor Herrington...?
In fact it should be noted that the Pythoneers did much disservice to the Nobel and ancient sport of fish slapping.This is quickly becoming a Monty Python sketch; The Ministry of Slapstick Fish...
Did the Pythoneers actually do such a sketch? I may need to Google this...In fact it should be noted that the Pythoneers did much disservice to the Nobel and ancient sport of fish slapping.
Although amusing and I confess I've laughed many times at the sketch of the two gentle men taking part in a supposed contest.
HOWEVER, their whole representation of a "Slap Up" was completely wrong.
For instance, the approach stance, the holding of the fish prior to the slap and even the size of the fish (Which some say should have been filleted, though not all agree) made a mockery of the sport. The fact that no medics were present, just in case, and worst of all, the suggestion it was an outside sport (It's like suggesting darts should be played in a swimming pool). Also the facile suggestion that your opponent should stand and wait for a slap is nonsensical. "Fish Slapping" is not a game of Conkers.
I know for a fact it has taken years for the sport to return to it's former glory and traditional rules.
Fish slapping is an inside sport and takes place in a proper "Net" (a caged area of fish hooks surrounding a circle drawn on a marble floor - in fact cage fighting draws it's roots from this). The main aim is to either knock your opponent unconscious or "Slap" him out of the ring in a similar way to Sumo Wrestling (although that crude and unsavoury sport doesn't hold a candle to a true "Fish Slap" which can last for hours or even days.
Is there any regulations on fish? I mean, would a Manta Ray be acceptable as a slapper? How about aTurbot? Also, do you have to catch your own?
Apologies; regulatory questions need to be submitted to office 21b on the 4th floor. They are currently projecting a 2 hour wait time, so you may want to go there quickly.Is there any regulations on fish? I mean, would a Manta Ray be acceptable as a slapper? How about aTurbot?

Enforcement complaints must be submitted in triplicate with original signatures of you and either a moderator or a local law enforcement professional on each to establish probable cause to open an inquiry into opening a preliminary investigation.Umm ... it may have escaped the moderators notice but I'm slowly being gudgeo ... bludgeoned into unconscionableness. Someone's clearly taken the piscine liberty!
