The Red Herring is a discharge of Melancholia. It flows along the dark fluids right from the SPLEEN.

Red Herring is also a strategy of confusion. They do (not) exist- as a false trail; a clue or piece of information which is intended to be misleading or distracting.

When Red Herring helps you to translate from English to Polish then you learn that the SPLEEN is ŚLEDZIONA in Polish. And when you try to translate it back to English you discover that ŚLEDZ means HERRING and ONA means SHE.
