The Strange Case of the Cannibal Animals

This is a paper bag from our local chip shop (hang on a minute, there's a Homer Simpson voice in my head going 'Mmmm, chips...'). Sorry. Anyway, can you see what's wrong with this picture? The fish has the knife and fork. The fish! It's just wrong. A fish can't eat fish and chips!

But weirdly, cannibal animals are quite common. You get barbecue aprons showing a happy pig frying sausages, or a jolly bull barbecuing a steak. The French advert below is a rather graphic variation. It did the rounds on blogs a while ago, and I think you can get it on T-shirts now.

Ugh, the self-slicing pig! I too am fascinated by cannibal animals. It's a theme you often get in adverts, or something like it -- like the blackcurrants that joyfully jump into Ribena oblivion.
