Did you hear the one about...?

Did you hear the one about the Swordfish that stabbed a submarine and ended up as dinner? No, it's not a joke, but according US media, it's a true story! Apparently way back in 1967, US Naval Submarine, the Alvin, was doing work at a depth of 2,000 feet, near the Bahamas, when the crew heard a big, metallic noise, shaking the entire submarine. When brought to the surface, they found was a swordfish that had impaled itself into the outer hull of the submarine. Being a practical lot, they  they filleted and ate the swordfish for dinner. Don't believe us? Well here's the photo:
