BERLIN - A catfish apparently choked to death after trying to chow down on a soccer ball in the locks of a Bavarian canal.

German police said the 6 1/2-foot-long fish was found dead Monday, floating on the surface of the water with a blue-and-white soccer ball in its mouth.

"He tried to eat the ball and it got stuck," police spokesman Karl-Heinz Kuberlein said Tuesday.

Must be one of those Wels Cats and some kind of sick twisted spin-off of the Famous Flathead bobbing around the lake with a red rubber ball in it's mouth. smile

6.5 frick'en feet!

Every time I see that picture (above) and/or email I think someone must have stuffed it in there. They had to. I mean, how depressing is that a flathead is dumb enough to try swallowing a ball, yet they never seem to take my bait! (This reply does not require any smart alecy responses either). crazy

I might have to try some nerf balls soaked in bullhead slime.
