Please Mr Spielberg…
I’m Kelvin Codner. That’s me in the photo – the orange fish in the middle. You may remember me from such films as ‘A Fish called Codner” and ‘Dude, Where’s my Carp?’
I make a splash in a crowd scene – you won’t catch me ‘sleeping with the fishes’!
Can I do comedy? Don’t make me laugh! You should see my double act with ‘Salmon Dave’, “Live in the Hollywood Bowl”.
I’m also very versatile. A review for ‘Waterworld’ stated, “Codner is mouth-watering. He just gets batter with every part.”
In short, I’m a scale model of Jaws!

Watch out–he might get hired for dinner theater!
That might leave a bad taste in the mouth!
Ha Ha, great job 🙂
Thanks. I had fun with this one!
You’re right it’s fishy with a good fin-ish.
Well done! 🙂
Very clever and made me chuckle, which is a good thing. Thanks.
Dude! Where’s my carp? ^^ clever story. thanks for the laugh. really enjoyed this.
Couldn’t resist that one! Thanks, kz.
You’re hired! Very funny…a stand-up comic…fish.
I Thank You! Tell your friends, I’m here all week!
You forgot A Fish called Codner. Love the ‘batter’ line. Good job.
I actually had already put ‘A Fish Called Codner’ in the first paragraph. I thought it was too good to miss out! Thanks for your positive comments, Doug.
I think Kevin Codner should be thrown into your Lakey. I feel a fish fry coming on. But enough puntification. Fun one.
Thanks Rochelle. There’s actually a town called Codnor a few miles from where I live. It always makes me smile when I see the sign!
One long giggle, from beginning to end. I’d clap, but my fins are too short. 🙂
