A “tell-tale sign” may not always be accurate and things may not always be as “fishy” as they seem.
Just like this fishy story.
A Fishy Tale
For a resident of the Khlong Suan District in Thailand, what appeared to be something “fishy” really was just rotting fish.
The resident thought that there was something fishy going on when a foul, rotting smell grew stronger and stronger until it became completely unbearable.
The smell became so strong that the Thai speculated that there was a rotting corpse in the neighbour’s house.
The unnamed Khlong Suan resident was so perturbed by the smell that he called the police, informing the cops that a terrible smell was coming from the third floor.
The arrival of the police leads to a crowd of curious residents forming around the door of the apartment.
Many were wearing face masks because of the unbearable smell.
