Poisson Frit

A sailor that I know just went to Menorca, Spain.
He sails and everybody understands.
Then he scarfed down a plate of Whitebait, uh huh,
and said it was the finest in the land.

In Metedeconk, we call them Spearing,
and they're definitely used for bait.


  1. Fishermen in Japan have wanted to test market the local whitebait fish (fishermen everywhere are always looking for new customers as they deplete the oceans of fish), but have postponed the trials due to the recent leaks of (even more) radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear plant.

  2. A sardine is just a sardine... even if fried.

    1. T-man says Minorca, but when he quotes the spanish, it's Menorca. I say potato, you say potatoe?

    2. Menorca is the traditional name, but Minorca is a way of contrasting it's smaller size to the Island of Majorca.
      Minor being minor, Major being well, major.

      Let's call the whole thing off.

  3. 'poisson frit' like this is yummy! nice and crunchy with a bit of salt... but I don't know about the radioactive ones!
