The very funny @TeaAndCopy excelled himself on Twitter today - as did a Sainsbury's employee by the name of David.

Because @TeaAndCopy - aka Marty Lawrence - tweeted @Sainsburys with a very silly fish pun... and they took the bait. As it were.

Check out the hilarious exchange which ensued, below. And if you know this David from Sainsbury's, do let us know, won't you? Come on, David - don't be koi!

    I tried to buy some battered fish from but it didn't have a bar cod! 10:34 AM 10 Jan 2014
  • Sainsbury's
    Were there no other packs in the plaice, or was that the sole one on the shelf? Floundering for an explanation! David. 10:41 AM 10 Jan 2014

    .@sainsburys I tried dropping you a line but this whole situation is giving me a haddock. What are you going to do about it? Let minnow. 10:47 AM 10 Jan 2014
  • Sainsbury's
    If I'm herring you right, you're looking to eel our relationship. I'll tell the store to find the shelf & fillet. David. 10:58 AM 10 Jan 2014

    .@sainsburys I don't think it's necessary to scale the shelves, David. There's no point doing it for the halibut. You might pull a mussel. 11:02 AM 10 Jan 2014

    I feel that some fin should be done to sort it trout. You shouldn't have that hassle when trying to spend a few squid. David. 11:14 AM 10 Jan 2014

    .@sainsburys Something dolphinately needs to be done about it. The quicker we sort it out the batter. Before the situation gets cray. Marty. 11:21 AM 10 Jan 2014
  • Sainsbury's
    Agreed, we mustn't shark the issue. Salmon should be brought to account for this mis-hake. David. 11:34 AM 10 Jan 2014

    .@sainsburys Sorry for carping on about this, David. With mistakes, it's just nice to be given the oppor-tuna-ty to mullet it over. Marty. 11:39 AM 10 Jan 2014
  • Sainsbury's
    It's ok, just needs sorted quickly. I'll get my skates on & scallop down there now. Can't be leaving you in the perch. David. 12:00 PM 10 Jan 2014

    .@sainsburys Don't feel gill-ty, David. It was a simple error. Good luck trawling through the products, although you're clearly a dab hand! 12:05 PM 10 Jan 2014
  • Sainsbury's
    It's important these things don't slip the net. Things could be a shoal lot worse if we don't get on our pike & fix it. David. 12:23 PM 10 Jan 2014
  • Marty Lawrence
    .@sainsburys Try not to be so koi, David. It's easy to get hooked and then feel out of your depth. I wait with baited breath for your reply. 12:27 PM 10 Jan 2014
  • Sainsbury's
    It would be shellfish not to get it sorted. We wouldn't bream of upsetting our customers by accident or on porpoise. David. 12:53 PM 10 Jan 2014

    .@sainsburys All these exchanges in a roe have been brill-iant, David. I'll try to kipper a lid on it, but Gods hake, it's been fin-tastic. 1:04 PM 10 Jan 2014
  • Sainsbury's
    You've been off the scale too! Think I might clam up now, my colleague Ray is in later though if you fancy a fin-wag. David. 1:17 PM 10 Jan 2014
  • Marty Lawrence
    .@sainsburys Thank you. This has probably been the finnacle of my tweeting career. Carp diem, David. 1:29 PM 10 Jan 2014
