From the Christian tradition standpoint, the Ichthus is an acronym.
In greek the word for fish is: edit: Sorry, was trying to show the Greek letters here.... (pronounced Ichthus in engslish).

Each letter representing another word.

Iota, Chi, Theta, Upsilon, Sigma
Iota was the first letter for Iesous (Jesus)
Chi was the first letter for Khristos (Christ)
Theta was the first letter for Theou (God)
Upsilon was the first letter for Huios (Son)
Sigma was the first letter for Soter (Savior)


The statement of "X Ate the Jesus fish", (I've seen various things used for X) is typically an Atheist statement against Christianity.

i love the story (don't know if it's true)
about how the christians used the easily drawn symbol as a secret "handshake" to recognize each other in hostile territory.

the first person would draw one single curved line,
if the second person was also a christian,
they could complete the fish drawing with another identical curve.
if the second person was not aware of the code,
the simple curved line did not give away the game.
