A Norwegian fisherman got a big surprise recently when he was cleaning the delicious 11-pound cod he had caught and found that the fish had enjoyed an unexpected dinner of its own when he pulled a full-sized vibrator out of its stomach.
Bjørn Frilund said he had been fishing in the waters around his hometown for decades but had never found anything like that inside a fish before.
"I was astonished," he told The Local. "It was totally unexpected. I had never seen anything like this before."
Frilund says he suspects the cod must have mistaken the large, bright orange, motorized sex toy for some kind of cephalopod.
"Fish eat all kinds of different things," he said. "And the dildo looks like what the fish eat. We have a kind of multi-coloured octopus in Norway, maybe the cod thought this was one of these and ate it."
As to how the vibrator got into the fish’s habitat in the first place, Frilund has made up his own explanation for that occurrence, attributing the object’s origin to ”a frustrated woman on a cruise.”
Frilund said he thought the odds of finding a fish with such odd stomach contents were less likely than winning the lottery. He did not mention if he still intends to eat the fish.
