Headline of the day

(I just found this in my Drafts folder, from mid-November. The news content isn’t current anymore, but the fun is.)

MacDuff Marine Aquarium is preparing to release Rip, a 6-foot (1.8 meter) conger eel, so that he can migrate to his breeding grounds in the Açores and complete his life cycle.

Naturally, the BBC headlined its article about the release:

Crane lift for eel as ‘love congers all’ in Macduff

Oh, how I love BBC punnery.

Video footage of the release is also available, complete with accompanying Bee Gees music. Points if you can guess the song before clicking that link.

    I guessed right! 😀 It was easy, no deep-thinking needed! 😮
    So long, Rip 🙂
