You Don't Tug On Superman's Cape, You Don't Spit Into the Wind, You Don't Pull the Mask Off That Old Lone Ranger...

and you don't mess around with Jim - - or go swimming in a river full of piranhas.

A mass piranha attack left sixty people injured as they enjoy a Christmas Day swim in an Argentine river.

Dozens of bathers including more than 20 children were bitten by the shoal of meat-eating fish during the surprise attack.

A seven-year-old girl lost part of one of her fingers and a young boy was left with an open fracture in his hand.

Other swimmers suffered deep cuts to their ankles, fingers and hands.

The attack happened on Christmas Day on a popular beach on the Parana River in the city of Rosario, birthplace of Barcelona striker Messi.

Swimmers trying to cool down in 100 degrees temperatures raced out of the water bleeding from wounds and shouting for help while the parents of children in the water rushed to their aid to drag them to safety.

Coastguards called paramedics so they could assist the most seriously injured before police temporarily closed off the beach, forcing people out of the water who continued to swim despite the danger.

How about Down By the River, Fish Bit My Baby?

How about Ha ha, you fool! You fell for one of the classic blunders!

How about They chose poorly?

How about What a maroon!
