It seems a truckload of fish was spilled on the road in Scotland yesterday. The BBC tweeted this image of the result:
The Telegraph reports:
A lorry carrying dead fish shed its load on the A737 near the Renfrewshire village of Kilbarchan, Traffic Scotland confirmed, and the puns soon followed.
Motorists in the area were met with the bizarre sight of hundreds of fish splayed across the road at around 4pm today.
Traffic was reduced to one lane causing tailbacks as contractors cleared the misplaced shoal off the road.
Motorists stuck in traffic were quick to upload pictures of the bizarre incident on Twitter, followed by a predictable stream of fish puns.
#A737 Any more fish puns or do you need time to mullet over? Let minnow and get them in quick before salmon else does...

Many more puns are quoted at the link. BBC Scotland's Twitter feed also has a bunch of them - for example:
Go read them all for a good laugh. Given the location, I'm surprised no-one's asked - yet - who kilt all those fish . . .
