April 3, 2007: Don't swim in Congo River



"Don't swim in Congo River," is the only information on the post that OynxCougar just sent along. I don't like to run these sort of blind items, where we don't know the full story. But it doesn't look like a hoax in any case.

Just to be sure, I have now ruled out swimming in even a swimming pool, in any of the countries where this river flows, as well as all natural bodies of water that are connected to the Congo in any way.

I can't be sure, but I think it's a moustache.

I can't figure out what kind of fish it is, but dammit SG, you had me googling for "moustache fish."

That's one of the scariest things I've ever seen! And he's holding a big fish too!

Hopefully not the fish that swims up your urethra when you piss while swimming in the river.

I will never pee in a river again after seeing the parasite thing on the discovery channel. It still gives me chills just thinking about it.

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeez.
The love child of a bass and a worm from the movie Tremors.
Those are some respectable teeth, no doubt. I wonder how strong the jaw is, those guys have their fingers in its mouth holding it open.

Thanks guy's,

Thank you very much indeed, here I am sweating, pretending to look for the best car-insurance (In a vain attempt to block out the girlfriends nagging about that same subject) I decide to waste some time here on the cellar, I click:" open the cellar in a new tab" and go to the kitchen get a cup of coffee, girlfriend saunters over to the computer, innocently clicks the tab, and that picture comes up.

LOL!

Yeah, they have a catfish that has sharp fins that go one way that will swim up your penis and cannot come back down because the fins get "lodged".... this fish does not scare me nearly as much.
It has been described by adventurers as "the worst thing you can imagine".
If I were to swim in the Amazon I'm wearin' protection.
