My vote goes to EtFb. Funny stuff.
I think he was was actually a foreigner… he may have been a Fin.
Seafood transported in a car boot. Hmmmm….another very good reason never to buy seafood from some bloke you met in a pub.
“Batemans Bay highway patrol stopped a 56-year-old Canberra man on the Princes Highway and allegedly found 234 shucked abalone hidden in the spare tyre cavity of the boot of his car”

apparently he was charging 10 squid a kilo….
They must be fish scales.
