Dispute

There is one topic that has cropped up recently that I feel needs addressing. I am quite sure that everyone knows what I am talking about. It is very serious. So serious that I have started my first poll, and believe me when I say that only something of the utmost seriousness could have kept me occupied for five hours trying to make it work.

So you had best vote or I will throw a right strop!

Salmon: colour or fish?
Colour
Fish

What do the others think?

I can quite clearly say that there is no such color as salmon, that it is indeed a fish (and a tasty one too I might add). Obviously the fish came first otherwise people would be saying “is that Trout colored” or something of that nature.
