Oh Flying Piranhas! Surprising how many people independently came up with the concept, we would talk about them when we were kids, 30 years ago or more. The kind I use generally are a type of FLISH based on the concept in The Future is Wild

I based it jokingly on the pirranha-parakeet hybrids from South Park.
