Court officer #1: I saw this show on Animal Planet last night. There’s this fish called a cichlid — the female takes her eggs in her mouth and then she nibbles the male’s fin until he shoots sperm into her mouth and then she swallows it to fertilize her eggs.
Court officer #2: Where can I get one of these cichlids?
