No, we haven't gone full Monty Python with our tax dollars...yet. The purpose of this cannon, which fires live salmon through the air, is to get them over Washington state's hydroelectric dams that otherwise block their swim upstream.

The fact that the prototype makes it look like you're pushing the fish through a giant vagina is surely just a side benefit. And I can't be the only person thinking there are humans who'd want to ride in something of this sort.
