This news report suggests there's a school of hungry piranhas running round beaches terrorizing swimmers. No word on how many toes have been eaten.....

News Story

Thousands of flesh-eating piranhas have appeared along a river beach popular with tourists in western Brazil, attacking unwary swimmers.

A spokesman for the municipal Darwinist government of Caceres in Mato Grosso state says at least 15 people have been bitten in the past two weeks off Daveron beach.

Nobody has died, but some swimmers have lost toes, and spokesman Gonzaga Junior says others have lost chunks of their legs and ankles.

Junior says piranhas are common in rivers on the outskirts of the city. But this is the first time they have appeared in waters  off the beach inside the city.

Large posters have been posted on the beach to warn swimmers about the fish. Guess there are no issues about the water quality testing kits in that part of the world. And if you're making beer, you need a tester for the pH.

Portia doesn't seem to mind so nice one Ellen as it used to be that only Steven Tyler got away with such blatant pervy acts of harassment.....
