Cod eats phone, fisherman catches cod, phone returned to owner

cod-phone.jpgAndrew Cheatle is a lucky chap. He lost his phone on a beach a couple of weeks back and assumed it’d been lost at sea. On a shopping trip to replace the handset, however, his girlfriend’s phone rang. She handed it to him, saying it was some guy going on about a cod.

On the end of the line was fisherman Glen Kerley. He’d found a handset in the belly of a cod, and figured he’d try and return it to its owner. After going to meet him, he was reunited with his (rather battered) handset, and after it dried out, he was amazed to find it worked perfectly.

So what was the handset that survived a week in a fish? I wasn’t sure, so I consulted the masses on Twitter. The wonderful @lovelychaos was first with the answer – it’s a Nokia 1600 – a handset designed for use in developing countries. Well, I guess it’s proved its worth!

  • all video did not work but found it on you tube and watched it. It made my day, it is hilerious. I will be watching the show no doubt. I love ad companies that come up with amazingly original ideas

  • Thank you for sharing this information, which I educated a lot, but also know a lot of information. I hope I’ll still see your information next time.

  • LED and CCFL bulbs simple structure, tube surface temperature rise is small, high surface brightness of the lamp, easily processed into various shapes; long life, good color, light evenly. LED Street Lighting, the light-emitting diodes as a light source, cold light source because it is a solid, environmentally friendly non-polluting, low power consumption, high luminous efficiency, long service life, mainly applied to the urban expressway, factories, schools and other lighting. CCFL lighting, the Chinese translation for the cold cathode fluorescent lamps, high power, high brightness, low power consumption, etc., are widely used in monitors, lighting and other fields.
