That's a city. And I would object the K (Хаба́ровск - it is a ch actually), but I know azbuka doesn't count here.

I was thinking where the 3rd fish went..

Well, you managed to murder that joke.
The correct way of playing it would have been for you to ask
'why Kilmarnock?'
and for me to answer
'it's a place in Scotland.'


On the plus side, to my knowledge, you're the first to get this right, so you get a medal.

Yeah, but if I'd asked "Why Kilmarnock?", I would have erased my opportunity to demonstrate my extraordinarily wide knowledge of terrible jokes.

I like what you did to fish #2, though. Usually it's just a humble king-sized haddock.

Well, since you're obviously very familiar with this terrible joke, you're going to have to give the medal back.

On second thoughts, since you were so honest, you can keep the medal.

It's taken me a while to respond as there was a question mark over whether we're dealing with two Ks here or a K and a ch.

After extensive research, I am happy to report that you were not only right but also first across the finish line (not fishing line) and I am therefore delighted to inform you that you are the clear winner and that the medal is on its way and should reach your virtual medal display case as we speak.
Congratulations!

and here's my research, in case you're interested.

If you are a rock climber then,
sometimes you feel like a nut,
sometime you don't!

OK, so this might class as terrible just because it's not funny, or mebbe it needs some specific linguisto-cultural knowledge, but I can't for the life of me work out what the joke is.

A rock climber may not want to let go with one hand to deploy it elsewhere... It's not a great joke (so it's in the right thread).

"In rock climbing, a nut (or chock or chockstone) is a metal wedge threaded on a wire and is used for protection by wedging it into a crack in the rock. Quickdraws are clipped to the nut wire by the ascending climber and the rope threads through the quickdraw. Nuts come in a variety of sizes and styles, and several different brands are made by competing manufacturers. Most nuts are made of aluminum. Larger nuts may be threaded on Dyneema cord instead of wire, but this has become unusual. The very smallest nuts are known as micronuts....."
