This is the source code to the Twitterbot @fishexist. Every day, it scrapes this episode list for No Such Thing as a Fish, the podcast from the QI elves.

  3. The real Long John Silver – William Ernest Henley, was the first thing that Ted Cruz did after dropping out of symbols for their candidates. Candidates are now using a bow and arro
  4. Plants have their own lava.
