The man caught a huge carp.
He returned home, pleased with his catch, and prepared to cook the fish. He scrubbed and dismantled it.
But he had a serious scare. He discovered a human finger in the fish.
He was perplexed, and his wife was appalled.
How did a finger from a person get inside the carp?
The riddle was answered, according to the Daily Mail, when the fisherman called a friend to explain what had occurred.
The acquaintance informed him that a man who had an accident on the same lake and had lost four fingers had been the subject of a TV news broadcast.
