re: the catfish poll [Jul. 27th, 2004|10:40 am]
Just me.
wow, you guys are a bunch of pushovers! Only 4 of us are Machivellian enough to take advantage of this poor, tasty creature's prediciment. Do those who are stupid AND delicious really deserve our mercy? Or does letting it go insure that it will live to reproduce and make easy-to-catch offspring that we can bait with mere tennis balls?

Oddly, I had a catfish poboy yesterday about 3 hours before I saw that snopes picture. Southerners who aren't well-travelled in the Pacific Northwest should note that this is not a common lunch counter item here, making the coincidence more extraordinary. In fact, I think this is the only catfish poboy I've eaten since I've lived here.

I'd say "plate of shrimp" here, but its almost too literal to work in this case.

I would gladly let someone else kill it for me, but I'm just too squeamish to personally kill a fish.

Think of the money you could make on that fish! It'd be a bigger attraction than the worlds biggest ball of twine or the American Fountain Pen Museum...plus I don't like to eat fish.

While you can argue that any fish that gets caught can't be all that bright, a fish that gets stuck trying to eat a small basketball is demonstrably dimmer than most. Sonce fish are brainfood, I like to be a bit more picky of the brain-level of the brainfood I eat.
