Fresh Fish

A customer was looking over the stock one day in a seafood shop, and she asked the fishmonger for advice on how to tell if a certain type of flatfish was really fresh or not. The kindly fishmonger informed her that it was a very easy matter — one must only check the eyes. If the eyes are nice and moist and rounded, it’s fresh. On the other hand if they look dried out and shriveled, chances are it’s been on the shelf a bit too long.

He concluded his advice with this very profound statement, “The eyes are the mirror of the sole.”
