*The Isoceles Fish Sandwich is a parody of a [[McDonald's]] menu item (like most items in the short): the [[Wikipedia:Filet-O-Fish|Filet-O-Fish]]. The Filet-O-Fish is a rectangular fish patty on a round bun, and other than the shape of the patty, the Isoceles Fish Sandwich strongly resembles it. The Filet-O-Fish was introduced by McDonald's primarily for heavily Catholic markets (due to restrictions on consumption of non-fish meats on Fridays and during Lent), and does not sell well in markets with a small or non-existent Catholic population.
