Holy Mackerel!

That is a common saying, or at least it used to be - probably not many younger folks use that phrase, but it did seem to be very prevalent once upon a time...

Which begs the question - why are mackerels holy? Which culture or religious group celebrates mackerels, and why not salmon, or swordfish? I know nothing really of the mackerel, but I know it is awfully hard to find in a 7-11, or even at a general grocers.

I must fin out more more about this holy fish.

Sorry, "find" :-)

Ha! Good point. Why the mackerel indeed? I think Holy Cheese would be more appropriate. Or Holy Bread or Holy Chain Link fence. But fish? Ah well, I kind of like Holy Mackerel to tell the truth.

I think fish with holes would make for one busy ocean floor bottom???
