No, no, no, no, no and one more no, just in case you missed my outrage!
The mass death of so many sardines in Los Angeles is nothing more than another sardine attempt at sublime exhibitionism.
Talk about fifteen minutes of fame. It is a well-known fact, known by all Siamese fighting fish, that sardines are simply attention seekers and will do ANYTHING to get into a record book. Any record book. Just look at this pathetic example below in which sardines attempt an entry into the Guinness Book of Records.
I rest my case.
