Does Cod Exist?

Sitting back at the campsite and pondering such big questions. How to identify the large slimy fish hauled in just after dusk? The printed poster was unclear and it took a long phone call and internet search to establish the answer. The answer is 'yes', cod does exist, Red Cod to be precise. Not so interesting to catch because they give up as soon as they're hooked. Not so good to eat (if you don't know how to prepare them properly) because the flesh is soggy.

The sport of fishing could be loosely compared to the non-sport of insurance claims, though with insurance it's difficult to determine who has been hooked. The car driver's insurance company has put the blame fully on the 'other party' and, as well as not paying for the damaged bike, intends to claim cost of repairs to the car, which is very unsporting to say the least. The tussle continues...
