PIRANHAS on a Christmas Day feeding frenzy have injured some 60 people in the Argentine city of Rosario.

Those injured in the attack by the ferocious fish included a girl who lost part of a finger, Health Undersecretary Gabriela Quintanilla told reporters.

Ms Quintanilla said the attack occurred Wednesday off the coast of Rosario, some 310km north of Buenos Aires.

A medical official, Gustavo Centurion, said the attack which began at midmorning on Christmas Day was "very aggressive." "There were some people that the fish literally had torn bits of flesh from," he said.

The region has been hit by a heatwave with temperatures soaring to 38C prompting thousands to seek relief in the waters of the Parana River, which is packed with carnivorous fish.

Officials said the unusually warm weather also was apparently responsible for the fish congregating on the river's surface before the attack.

Have run into these piranha before and know them well. Have even given them names. Andy, Caroline, Pat, Greg, Damian and Craig are the most popular. Only way to clear them out of the stream , a random stick of Gelly.

I think it says it all, actually.

Let's be honest. There's was a time where as a young bloke you probably wished you had a talking car, and you got to spend your working week with a handful of playmates.
Seems like a massive douch.e but probably had a bit of along the way.
