The day that “fish will fly” has finally arrived.
Over Labor Day weekend, Lisa Lobree was walking through Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, when a rotting mysterious object fell from the sky and smacked her in the face. While most park injuries involve twigs or branches, this object was, in fact, an enormous dead catfish.
“I think it might have been head, face and neck because I smelled so bad afterwards,” she told CBS News 13. “I smelled disgusting.”
She was the victim of Catfishing and not even the fun type that happens on Tinder.
Thankfully, Lobree wasn’t alone at the time of the incident. A friend was nearby and able to witness the terrible tragedy.
“Annie sees me go down, turns around, looks and goes Oh my God! It was a fish,” Lobree told CBS News 13.
Lobree suffered minor injuries as a result of the incident, including a small cut to the face as well as swelling.
The catfish involved was over a foot long and dead. At the time, Lobree was more concerned with peeling the rotting fish corpse from her face than finding the joke in the matter.
Now, she’s hopeful that her terrible tragedy can bring joy to others.
“Think its just nice its giving people a good story to laugh at,” Lobree told CBS News 13.
It’s unclear how, exactly, the fish got to a tree, though some of Lobree’s friends witnessed a bird flying away shortly after the fish fell.
Remember: Catfishing (literal or metaphorical) is a serious crime.
