13-Year-Old Girl Learns Important Lesson About Not Hitting People in the Head With Fish

By Gary Cutlack on at

A young girl who attacked a shop worker by hitting him in the face with a fish has been reprimanded, with part of her punishment being made to write a letter of apology. A punishment that assumes someone has taught her how to write.

The fish-girl made her assault in the Accrington branch of Asda back in February, when she innocently inquired about fish at the fish counter then inexplicably picked up a large bream and hit the man in the face with it. No facts have been given regarding her reasons, so we don't know if it was a neknominate special, a joke, a homage to classic TV comedy or simple fury at the price of line-caught wild salmon these days.
