she see who saw booty to you? Chapter twenty seven, a fish of the world. Herring once decided to swim right around the world.I’m tired of the north sea. He said, I want to find out what else there is
in the world. So he swam off south into the deep atlantic. He swam and swam far far away from the seas he knew through the warm waters of the equator and on down into the south atlantic.And all the time he
saw many strange and wonderful fish that he had never seen before. Once he was nearly eaten by a shark. And once he was nearly electrocuted by an electric eel. And once he was nearly stung by a stingray, but
he swam on and on round the tip of africa and into the indian ocean. And he passed by devilfish and sailfish and saw fish and swordfish and bluefish and black fish and mud fish and some fish.
And he was amazed by the different shapes and sizes and colors on. He swam into the java sea and he saw fish that leapt out of the water and fish that lived on the bottom of the sea and fish that
could walk on their fins and on he swam through the coral sea where the shells of millions and millions of tiny creatures had turned to rock and stood as big as mountains. But still he swam on into the wide
pacific. He swam over the deepest parts of the ocean, where the water is so deep that it is inky black at the bottom. And the fish carried lanterns over their heads, and some have lights on their tails. And
through the pacific. He swam, and then he turned north and headed up to the cold siberian sea were huge. White icebergs sailed past him like mighty ships, and still he swam on and on and into the frozen
arctic ocean where the sea is forever covered in ice. And on he went past greenland, and iceland, and finally he swam home into his own north sea. All his friends and relations gathered around and made a
great fuss of him.They had a big feast and offered him the very best food they could find. But the herring just yawned and said, oh, i’ve swam around the entire world. I’ve seen everything there is to see.
And I have eaten more exotic and wonderful dishes than you could possibly imagine. And he refused to eat anything. Then his friends and relations begged him to come home and live with them, but he refused.
I’ve been everywhere there is and that old rock is too dull and small for me. And he went off and lived on his own.
Yeah,when the breeding season came, he refused to join in the spawning, saying, i’ve swam around the entire world. And now I know how many fish there are in the world. I can’t be interested in
herrings anymore. Eventually one of the oldest of the herring swam up to him and said, listen, if you don’t spawn with us, some herring eggs will go unfertilized and will not turn into healthy young
herrings. If you don’t live with your family, you’ll make them sad. And if you don’t eat, you’ll die. But the herring said, I don’t mind, i’ve been everywhere there is to go. I’ve seen everything there is to
see. And now I know everything there is to know. The old fish shook his head. No one has ever seen everything there is to see. He said nor known everything there is to know. Look, said the herring. I’ve
swung through the north sea, the atlantic ocean, the indian ocean, the java sea, the coral sea, the great pacific ocean, the siberian sea, and the frozen arctic. Tell me what else is there for me to see or
know? I don’t know, said the old herring, but there may be something. Well, just then a fishing boat came by and all the herrings were caught in a net and taken to market that very day. And the man bought
the herring and a tit for his supper. And he never knew that it had swam right around the world and had seen everything there was to see and knew everything there was to know.
