    stupid. They might as well RickRolled us.

    Also, there is a fish with a snake`s head. It`s called the Snakehead Fish, they can live on land for quite a while, and they like to attack humans. Scientists did not invent it though.

    Oh noes! Seriously? Anyway...Fish and snakes are biologically incompatible, hence the head swap title gave it away as BS before I even clicked the link! Shoulda said it was a genetic hybrid or some such!

    What did that perfectly ordinary fish have to do with a snake or snake`s head? I don`t get it. They said to look for stitches at :33 seconds but the video was only :30 seconds long so that is impossible. Then the fish jumped out of the water and wasn`t even on camera at the end. Finally, why did the person who made this stupid video say "I got you" - what exactly does he think that he got us to think or do?
    I don`t get it. Does he think we`ve never seen a fish before? Seemed incredibly ordinary to me.

    During the video I was thinking, "Wait why would scientists put a `rare` fish experiment in a small tub?", then the fish jumped out, got confused, and realized it was supposed to be a screamer.

    I agree completely. I have submitted stuff that is much more entertaining and, as far as I know, it`s never been on here before. My stuff hardly ever goes up. This is stupid, pointless, why not put some good stuff up.

    i wonder how many people actually thought you could pull the head off a fish and a snake and think "yeah, those 2 animals are still gonna be alive. lets be stupid enough to think this is real"

    Was that supposed to be one of those things that scares you? Honestly, I didn`t even blink. Probably because I`m half asleep right now, though.

    Not sure if I really need to press play. It looks like a regular fish from the still.

    Oh, yes, snakes have gills.
    Anyone who thought this was real, even for a second, deserves to be shot.

    Still wrong

    Fish + Snake = Missouri river goldfish

    Fish + Tiger + Vampire + Elephant + Something else + WTF IS THAT = Wal-mart cat fish.
