    Default Dover sole 'jumps' down angler's throat in Bournemouth

    An angler had to be resuscitated after accidentally swallowing a fish he had just caught.
    The man was kissing the Dover sole in celebration of his catch when the six-inch (14cm) fish wriggled out of his hand and jumped into his mouth, a friend said.
    The 28-year-old stopped breathing and suffered a cardiac arrest at the scene on Boscombe Pier, Bournemouth.
    Paramedics managed to remove the fish with forceps in an ambulance

    At that size, you're supposed to throw 'em back! Not eat 'em!

    The doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power, and oppression, is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
