BERLIN – Oh sprat!

A tractor-trailer tried to take a turn and toppled over, tipping its entire load of fish onto a German farmer’s field.

Police says some 20 metric tons (22 tons) of sprat spilled out of the truck in Friday’s accident in the northeastern state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

German news agency dpa quoted a police spokesman saying: “The fish bar is open.”
