No need to call the cops, it's just a sunfish!

If you find yourself in Wareham, Massachusetts and you see an bizarre creature in the water, do NOT call 911 or the police station.

Most likely you're be staring at a sunfish, and sunfish are completely normal sea creatures. They're just big and ugly looking.

The Wareham Department of Natural Resources posted on Facebook begging people to stop calling about the sunfish, writing:

"We are aware of a sunfish in Broad Cove. We have checked on it, and it is doing normal sunfish activities. Its swimming. It is not stranded or suffering. The sunfish is FINE.
Don't be jealous just because its not swimming weather anymore!

Seeing this story of course reminded us of one of our favorite videos of all time. It's two guys from Boston on their fishing boat and they encounter a sunfish, but the hilarious part is they have no idea what they're looking at.

There is a lot of swearing in this video, and a lot of fantastic lines. "Jay, what is that thing?!" We watch this in the office when we need a good laugh, hope you enjoy!
