Natural Lube Powers One of World's Fastest Fish

I wonder if it would make me faster too.
One way to find out!
Do I eat it or apply it to my skin?
If you eat it it might make you more buoyant, but I don't think it will make you faster. Here's how it works with the swordfish:
According to new experiments published today in the Journal of Experimental Biology, the swordfish has an oil-producing gland at the base of its bill, or sword. As the animal swims, this gland pumps a cocktail of fatty acids to its skin through a network of tiny capillaries and pores. (See "Why a Swordfish’s Sword Doesn’t Break.")
The scientists believe the oil creates a water-repelling layer across the front of the swordfish’s head, thereby allowing the predator to reduce drag and slip through the sea more easily.
Noice. I need an oil producing gland.
It would need to be at the base of your bill.
Lol at the panda with a unicorn horn!
Perhaps I can just buy Fish Lube?
Do not Google Fish Lube!
Thank you for the warning!
