Ambiguous, or am I just dim?

"Village women swap sex for fish"

Would you, at first glance, assume this story was about:

A) Women having sex-changes for fish
or
B) Women selling sex for fish.

Put your guess in the comments (without checking!), and I'll update with this post later on.

**UPDATE**

It was B. But I love the fact that even more inventive suggestions were put in the comments.

OR! Women facilitating sex changes for fish?

Keri said...

Even better!

I hadn't thought of that one!

Magic Bellybutton said...

My thought was more mundane. They'd rather eat fish than have sex.

Where are their priorities?

I guess it comes down to the quality of the fish versus the appeal of having sex with the men or other women of the Village MBB?

Keri said...

So it was even more vague than I thought!

I don't eat fish, so it's not a contest for me, but I don't think there's a meal on earth that would make me give up sex.

I'm actually thinking my response was because I was in the middle of eating lunch when I read it.

But again, their priorities? Who needs food when you have teh sex?

I happened to find an article about this later and what can I say? Two for the price of one!

I had seen that headline, and assumed it was b... Now I am on the edge of my seat (or google, as it were) to catch the answer.

Keri said...

I've just updated the post, Jeanie.

jeanie said...

Ahh - but I am still required to track down google and find out why...

Is the fish that good? Is the sex that bad? Is there a sliding scale?

Bron said...

I read it too fast and thought it said that women were having sex WITH fish.

Ewww. As if women don't smell fishy enough...
