    Bloke at work insists there's no such thing as a fish.

    For sure, that might be a huge fish, but it's not half as big as the Whoppers the Daily Mail tell.

    What do you call a fish that's missing an eye?

    Fsh.

    Are you suggesting that they've done it on porpoise?

    He's quite right

    Unlike mammals and birds, not all the creatures we call fish today descend from the same common ancestor. Or put another way, if we go back to most recent common ancestor of everything we now call fish (including the incredibly primitive lungfish and hagfish), we find that they also were the ancestor of all four-legged land vertebrates, which obviously aren’t fish at all. So, it’s a term to use with caution. After all, in the 16th century, seals, whales, crocodiles and hippos were called fish and cuttlefish, starfish, crayfish, jellyfish and shellfish still are.
     
  19. They are just trawling with their click-bait.
