Headline: "Double-Mouthed Fish Pulled From Neb. Lake"

Yes, there is a picture at the link. From the AP:
This fish didn't have a chance. A rainbow trout pulled out of Holmes Lake last weekend had double the chance to get hooked: It had two mouths.

Clarence Olberding, 57, wasn't just telling a fisherman's fib when he called over another angler to look at the two-mouthed trout. It weighed in at about a pound.

"I reached down and grabbed it to take the hook out, and that's when I noticed that the hook was in the upper mouth and there was another jaw protruding out below," said Olberding.
Since the fish is double-mouthed, scientists are confused as to whether the fish should be renamed "John Kerry trout" or "Hillary Clinton trout." At least they agree on the "trout" part!
