Once-upon-a-time, there was a young woman who fell in love with a fish. This caused her parents some embarrassment when they went to church. When her father had found out he screamed “What do you mean she’s dating a fish!”.
“He’s not an ordinary fish dear, he’s one of those anthropomorphic fish, the kind that talk and take on human characteristics”
“Does he have a job?”
“Well no, but he reads a lot, and he’s very polite. He’s really a very nice boy dear.”
“He’s an unemployed fish!”
Eventually the young woman began to grow unsatisfied with the lack of sex in the relationship. She was also getting tired of him staying home all day and reading while she worked all day. The young woman decided to go to the witch who lived in the forest, and ask her to turn her fish into a man. So she took the fish to the witch.
“Well let’s see here.” the witch said, looking at the fish “Very nice fish you got here, nice coloring. I’ll take it, now what do you want?” she asked the young woman.
“This fish and I have fallen in love and I want you to turn him into a man.” the young woman replied.
“Is this true?” the witch asked the fish.
“Yes ma’am” smiled the fish.
“Did I do this?” the witch asked the young woman.
“No, he was always a fish”
“No, what I mean is did I make you fall in love with the fish? I have a few drinks now and then, and the next thing you know whole weeks are blacked out.” the witch said.
“I don’t think so.” the young woman said.
“O.k., so if I turn this fish into a man, you go home with a man, and I get to keep the fish?”
“If you turn the fish into a man, then there won’t be a fish for you to keep, unless I’m missing something here.” said the young woman with a quizzical look on her face.
“So we need to arrange another method of payment then?” asked the witch.
“I think so.”
“Well o.k., did you bring any money dear?”
“I’m afraid I’m just a poor farm girl with no material possessions.”
“I’ll change the fish into a man after you have worked for me for a year.”
The young woman agreed and went to work for the witch, sweeping, cooking, and sewing for the witch. Finally the year passed, and the witch turned the fish into a tall and handsome man. And so the young woman and the tall and handsome former fish lived happily until the tall and handsome former fish left the young woman for a barmaid with long legs and a learning disability.
Eventually the young woman found a young man who was slightly younger than her, but extremely gifted at oral sex and they settled down.
She often thought about the tall and handsome former fish and how stupid she was. She was thinking these every thoughts one day while she was fishing off the bridge. She felt something bite the hook, and she yanked the poll up. To her surprise, the fish called out to her “Hey Baby!”
“Not another one!” she screamed.
“It’s me baby. Don’t you remember? We really had something special!” said the fish.
“What happened to that barmaid you left me for?” the young woman scowled.
“She left me, and when I wouldn’t leave her alone, she got the witch to turn me back into fish.” said the fish.
“Well come on dear let’s take you to the witch and straighten this out.” she said the fish. And so she took the fish to witch.
“Hello.” said the witch as she answered the door.
“Do you remember me? I worked for you for a year so that you would turn this fish into a man. It seems another woman had you turn him back into a fish.” the young woman said to the witch.
“Oh yes I remember, lovely fish.” the witch said.
“Well I’d like to make another deal with you.”
“What would you like dear?”
“I’d like to you make my breasts bigger, and in exchange you can have the fish.” the woman said to the witch.
“Baby! You can’t do this to me, not after all we’ve meant to each other!”
“Deal.” said the witch.
And so the young woman went home that evening without any fish, but her husband didn’t seem to notice.
