Anyone else not get this?

 

It's not a joke!

 

+1 - even looked up 'Mirror Carp' on the web in case it gave a clue - still none the wiser and not sure what it's got to do with Polish people.

 

OK, have you ever seen Mirror carp for sale to eat in a supermarket?

The Polish are well known to poach carp all over the country to eat.

 

I just though it was amazing to see it on sale.

Eating carp has been practiced in England since the monks would farm them for food.

 

Indeed! To be honest perch and pike taste much better and gudgeon make a great fry up. They also eat tench here in Italy although it's a very localised dish. As for chub, the only recipe I know talks about baking it between two boards, then throw away the chub and eat the boards. I've never had mirror carp but it's always been a staple of continental fish farming: a source of protein you can raise anywhere.

 

The best fish I've had is extremely fresh mackerel and extremely fresh tuna (when we eventually landed it on the yacht I was crewing). To be honest, I reckon mackerel shade it.

I don't think the fish abuser noticed the mirror carp. He just saw a big photo full of scales and slime and emptied. It would be like looking at the dirtiest pornographic magazine to me and you.
