    Of all of the shows where the salmon could have shown up… Why did they
    not do Game of Thrones?

    Somehow I was expecting a serious editorial about some political device
    dubbed “the Salmon Cannon”.
    I’ve been pleasantly disappointed.

    That is cool and all but have the Yanks never heard of a fish ladder?
    P.S. It is not actually a ladder.

    Speaking of cannons that fire animals, fun anecdote (which is supposedly
    true though I have not checked):
    When they built the first high speed trains in France they were concerned
    that birds would not be used to things traveling so fast and would fail to
    avoid the train potentially damaging it.
    To see if this would be a problem the French built a cannon that fired
    store bought chickens! In the end the trains proved to be chicken proof.
    A few years later when Russia bought the high speed train technology from
    France, they were also allowed to borrow the chicken cannon. They
    eventually sent a message to to the French saying ( not in these words)
    “what the fuck is wrong with you, the chicken went straight through the
    windscreen and nearly killed the pilot”
    The French response was “try defrosting it first”

    3:24 – They were obviously told “do not hit Dave in the face or head with
    the fake salmon”. Noticed his landed on the desk and not on his face.

    I want to see a Part 2. A Net Exclusive. Where salmon get shot at famous
    YouTubers. I can see it now…

    John Oliver: So, we have brought the Salmon Cannon back, and I can’t wait
    to see where they go this time.
