Big fish, big fish, swimming in the water, Come back here and pay for your porter

I for one am glad to see that someone is studying learning styles among fish, and in particular, what is the best way of teaching them the difference between 'two' and 'three'. This research will be a great boon to fish educationalists, and will put paid to the patronising, dismissive response that fish have a 'mental block' that makes it pointless even trying to teach them basic arithmetical skills. Also it will take away the excuse that they "can't tot up the bill" and "maybe someone else should pay for the round".

We eagerly awake future research into the optimal way of introducing octopodes to the basic concepts of molecular biology.

Oh come on. Math is as easy as 1,2,2.

Fish needs to work harder on the distinction between singular nouns and plural ones like "maths".

fish said...

Ah, singular or plural, still the same color.

Look, if fish counted they'd have won at least one sporting event by now. Their World Cup qualifying matches are pitiful with all that flopping.
