I used to live in New Orleans, had a friend that was a rescue diver. There
was a ferry accident and a large number of cars and passengers went into the
Mississippi river. The divers went down to try and recover cars and bodies,
but it was sooo dark they had to search by hand. They soon realized that
some of those car sized lumps they were finding weren't cars, and they
sometimes moved away. They decided that they had to be catfish, and divers
could easily be considered "lunch". The cars are still down there.
