A Norwegian fisherman found an orange vibrator in the stomach of a large cod he was gutting.
Bjørn Frilund told The Local he was astonished. The 64-year-old, from Eidsbygda in western Norway has been fishing for as long as he can remember — but this was the first time he'd heard of a fish swallowing something like this.
He wonders is the 6kg cod had mistaken the sex aid for a tasty cephalopod.
"We have a kind of multi-coloured octopus in Norway, maybe the cod thought this was one of these and ate it," he said.
He speculates that the vibrator came to be in the Barents Sea after being thrown off a boat, perhaps by "a frustrated woman on a cruise".
