If we all turned squiddy enough to breathe water, and to breathe it into

I happen to know a lungfish 'down under' --- in Australia, that is ---
named (of course) Larry the Lung.

Larry tells me that he has heard Leather Lungs Lester and the
Lake-dwellers. Larry says that water has too much inertia to produce
the reed-driven frequencies that are demanded by 'good' underwater music
--- such as Mozart's infrequently-heard "Serenade in a Bath Tub for Comb
and Kelp Leaves" or Hogwood Hagglefish's even less-frequently-heard
"Water Music in the Muck Marsh."

Please tell Shadow for me that Lester would make a better meal than a
musician! Larry is willing to provide a suitable barbeque fire along
the river bank, if Shadow is interested.
