“A fish in sea” ("efficiency” pun)

"A fish in sea” sounds like the word “efficiency.” There have been several puns and riddles. “Efficiency (A Fish In Sea), a film about a man’s preoccupation with fish” was printed in the Vancouver (BC) Sun on May 2, 1987.

A riddle was posted on Twitter on September 15, 2011:

Q: What’s the most productive animal?
A: A fish in sea! (Efficiency!)


Another riddle was posted on Twitter on October 1, 2017:

Q: What`s the opposite of a fish out of water?
A: A fish in sea (Efficiency)



2 May 1987, Vancouver (BC) Sun, “SFU program is heavy on experimental works” by Andrew Marke, pg. H11:
SFU STUDENT FILMS. Today (9:30 p.m.) and Sunday (2 and 7:30 p.m.). At the Pacific Cine Centre.

Efficiency (A Fish In Sea), a film about a man’s preoccupation with fish, and the experimental short Bridges are two of nine films and videos to be shown this weekend at Pacific Cine Centre when Simon Fraser University film students unveil their year’s work.
