Of all the little annoying things that happen during the day, I have to say I've never been surprise impaled by a marlin...

Fisherman impaled by giant fish as it leapt across boat
By Simon de Bruxelles

A fisherman is recovering after being impaled on the bill of a 14ft blue marlin that leapt over his boat during an international angling tournament off Bermuda. The 800lb (360kg) fish hit Ian Card with such force that its 3ft spear went through his chest just below his collarbone and knocked him into the sea.

As the fish dived, forcing Mr Card under water, he was able to push himself off the razor-sharp bill and swim to the surface.

Okey dokey then...puts things in perspective, huh?
