Norwegian Fisherman Discovers Dildo Inside Cod Stomach

A Norwegian fisherman was gutting a large cod he'd caught when he ran across an unusual lump in his fish. Probably just some semi-digested herrings, right? No big deal. (Spoiler: It wasn't just semi-digested herrings.)

As Bjørn Frilund, 64, got further inside the fish, he realized his catch had somehow swallowed a medium-sized orange dildo. The fisherman, who lives in western Norway, confirmed he'd never encountered a sex toy inside a fish before. (You don't say!)

"The dildo looks like what the fish eat. We have a kind of multicolored octopus in Norway, maybe the cod thought this was one of these and ate it," Frilund told The Local.

"There may be a frustrated wife who threw the dildo overboard from the ship," he speculated, acknowledging that "all sorts of stories are equally likely."

The dildo had a vibrator motor in it at one time, but was broken by the time Frilund found it. There were no batteries inside the fish.
