Does anyone believe that story of the talking fish in new square? You know the one that happened quite a few years ago and everyone was going crazy about. I think too many parables about talking fish have gotten to their heads, dontcha think? If I am not mistaken the fish talked about Messiah (of course). I don't see how the story could have gotten that big, if I told that over to someone, they would think I'm joking or think I'm crazy. Well, do you believe this story or not, and would you eat this fish if you saw it talking?

The story happened to a friend of mine's uncle. But then my friend tells lots of tall tales, his uncle probably takes after him.

Didn't it speak to a goy or something, some Mexican worker.

I'd eat it. Then again, whenever I see an aquarium with fish in it, the first thing that comes to mind is sushi...

to rearrange some of the words in your post: 'big' 'fish', 'true' 'mashiach' 'story'; sure - the Leviathan!
