Hapless Fisherman Leaves Tub Of Scallop Organs In Wrong Car

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Maine fisherman`s wife said he is trying to find a plastic tub of scallop organs he placed in a car he mistakenly thought belonged to a graduate student.

Michelle Mays of Southwest Harbor said her husband, Andy, spent six months collecting scallops and he stored the organs from the sea creatures in formaldehyde as part of a research project.

Andy Mays wasted six months of his life collecting scallop organs, and now his wife is going to waste a few days trying to find them.
