Quote of the day - police blotter edition

Courtesy of a link at Rev. Paul's place, we learn of this entry in the famous Unalaska police blotter:

27 January, Sunday - 1519 - Ambulance Request – EMS provided care and transport for a patient who had been struck in the head with a case of frozen fish.

Hmm . . . I know that police involvement can lead to criminals being 'weighed in the scales of Lady Justice', but I hadn't realized that the scales were quite so literal - or so fishy!  Also, if - as the idiom goes - 'revenge is a dish best served cold', what happens when the assault that prompted thoughts of revenge was perpetrated with a frozen-cold instrument in the first place?

They said it was a cold blooded assault, but there is definitely something fishy going on.

Peter, have you increased your pain medication dose recently?

Sounds like a workplace accident somewhere in the delivery chain from fishing boat to supermarket. Like a pallet falling off a forklift with a coworker standing too close.
