Kissing a catfish nearly proves deadly

Kissing a catfish is not a good idea.

One 13-year-old boy learned that the hard way during a Father’s Day fishing outing in Arkansas, according to GrindTV.com.



The site reports the boy’s mother was joking around as she held the slipper catfish near her son.

“I wanted to give him a kiss,” she explained. “He got nervous, the fish flopped, and it smacked him on the neck.”

The sharp spine of the catfish impaled the boy’s neck, coming just a couple of centimeters from puncturing a main artery, GrindTV.com reports.
