fish with feet
 n.— «Digital magazines—the flappable, page-by-page replication of a publication’s print edition, rather than content uploaded individually to a magazine’s Web site—have been around for about a decade, and Zinio has long been the market leader. Critics sometimes refer to them as “fish with feet” for being an unnatural, and perhaps unsustainable, step in media evolution.» —“Digital Magazine Ads Grab More Attention than Print” by Douglas Quenqua ClickZ Mar. 11, 2008.
