Fisherman finds a large red sex toy in a cod he caught

By Josh Haggis

A Norwegian fisherman had a surprise discovery recently after he reeled in a 5kg cod.

Bjorn Frilund, 64, caught the hefty fish while in the waters near the fjord-side village of Eidsbygda in western Norway – and then found a large red vibrator inside its stomach.

“I was astonished,” he told Norwegian news website The Local. “It was totally unexpected. I had never seen anything like this before.”

He continued: “Fish eat all kinds of different things. And the dildo looks like what the fish eat. We have a kind of multi-coloured octopus in Norway, maybe the cod thought this was one of these and ate it.”

The fisherman told another Norwegian publication, the Åndalsnes Avis, that he thinks the sex toy may have been tossed into the water by “a frustrated woman on a cruise”.
