    Well, I've visited the ED site "Something Fishy" for some years, but I've never wondered what it's supposed to actually mean until now... Now someone recently posted here on this forum "...Something fishy about that" what does it mean? :blink:

    I believe it means something about a situation is not quite right - there is a sense that one should be suspicious.

    (I don't know the origin of the phrase - perhaps because fish has a strong smell and you can notice it even when everything else seems ok?)
