Canada’s naval defences scuppered by mussels 11, January 2012

A floating fence designed to protect Canada’s navy ships has been scuppered by mussels and barnacles anchoring to the barrier and weighing it down.

My instant thought is that if this occurred in Egypt, we’d all be smirking at the press lambasting the latest perfidious action of the Israelis with their remote controlled sea food assortment. Sad but true.

mussels my friend, not muscles. Amusing thought though…

Was that really your “instant thought”?

Possibly if the mussels grew muscles, there may be reason for your thoughts! 😉
