Tropical Skirt

Filed under: News — lmwalker @ 11:33 am

Women in Melbourne can be a little fishy:

An Australian woman was found to be carrying 51 live tropical fish after custom officials were alerted by “flipping” noises coming from beneath her skirt as she arrived at Melbourne airport.

On closer inspection, officers discovered the woman had strapped on an apron of plastic water-filled bags containing the fish, the Australian Customs Service said.

So I see the how . . . but I still don’t understand the why.



  1. Perhaps tropical fish are expensive and illegal, and she wanted to sell them?

  2. That’s true. Tropical fish are a big industry, just like most of the aquarium industry, which I specifically dislike.
