You sure it wasn't Farmers Insurance filming a live-action commercial?

Catch a falling catfish
put it in your pocket
never let it get away...

I cannot even begin to tell you how often this has happened to me while driving down I-85. Actually I can. NEVER! But I'll definitely be watching out for them from now on.

"The rescued crew of a Japanese fishing trawler were held in custody when Russian officials refused to believe their claim that their boat was sunk by a falling cow ... the Russian Air Force reluctantly informed Japanese authorities that the crew of one of its cargo planes had apparently stolen a cow wandering at the edge of a Siberian airfield, forced the cow into the plane’s hold and hastily taken off for home. Unprepared for live cargo, the Russian crew was ill-equipped to manage a now rampaging cow within its hold. To save the aircraft and themselves, they shoved the animal out of the cargo hold as they crossed the Sea of Japan at an altitude of 30,000 feet."


A possibly unreliable physics professor at West Texas A&M claims fish falling from the sky is more common than thought. He goes on to say, "Snakes and alligators have been reported to fall from the sky."

The latter, I assume, must have happened in Florida.

Sadly, there seems to be no reports of any massive squirrel falls.

Somebody tell those engineers it was flying CARS, not catfish that they were supposed to develop.

What was the bird using for bait?
