I received a forwarded email from one of my friends today. This was a real friend, not a prince of a remote African country looking to bestow a small fortune upon me if I was to kindly forward him some advance funds by wire. The pictures are almost as unbelievable as the story, literally. See below:

For all those crazy guys who go 'noodling' for catfish and stick their arms down the fish's throat!! This would be 'all the catfish you can eat'.
Each year, a few people were drowning or disappearing mysteriously in Huadu's Furong . It was not until recently, when the son of a government official went swimming, in the reservoir and was drowned, that the secret was revealed.
It is a 3 meter long man-eating catfish whose head alone is 1 meter wide!
After cutting up the catfish, people were surprised to find the remains of another man inside!
Swimming in the reservoir is now forbidden because it is feared another similar man-eating catfish is still lurking in the waters.
So what's the real deal with these pics?http://urbanlegends.about.com/od/fish/ss/furong_catfish_8.htm
