In a Wisconsin city, the rain-swollen Rock River has risen fast and strong and has flooded downtown Main Street. In addition to bringing -- well, you know -- lots of water, the river has upchucked fish. Yes, lots of fish who have been spotted swimming in the streets.

The locals, apparently, are calling these visitors "Rock River salmon” because the larger ones are trying to swim upstream in the parking lot of the United Way.

In the wild, salmon jumping upstream more than likely end up here

The lazy clever bears are probably chortling something along the lines of, “It’s waaay too easy, yo. Like taking candy from a baby!”

In the United Way parking lot? No clue.

They’re not salmon, though, they’re carp.

Ah, po-tay-toes, po-tah-toes.

Unless, these “salcarp” are just trying to cross the road.

Which does finally put to rest that pesky age-long question about the chicken.
