    No title. "The peculiar phosphorescent light of the Cucumber Fish attracts smaller marine life -- its food. -- Monte Carlo." Microscopic photography of two Cucumber Fish. Extreme C/U of a Cucumber Fish. "It is the only thing you can see through at Monte Carlo." Microscopic photography of a group of Cucumber Fish. They are like single cell amoeba type creatures.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
