A cockroach by any other name scuttles as swiftly

As I sit painfully each evening looking about me for content, I notice the reject list of forbidden topics continues to get in the way of tomorrow’s post …

“Forbidden” only because I’m tired of reporting how few are left, what’s in them that we (you and I) shouldn’t eat, and all the other reminders that we, (you and I), and those before us have kilt everything, ate what was tasty, and continue to piss on the rest …

It’s a lot like our system of politics, a truly great idea whose originators never envisioned being entrusted to the current crop of morons.

Instead of dwelling on “downer” issues that are classified forbidden, rather I’ll adopt the unpopular tone and make a “double negative” into something uplifting, something that adds a little verve to your stride, or makes the day seem less onerous …

… like an IGFA World Record Snakehead recently landed in Florida

On the one hand it’s an invasive and we don’t want it much, on the other, the sumbitch has big teeth, can warm a disc drag nicely, and after eating all the remaining pussy-native fish, will give us something to fish for once the sign says, “Don’t Eat Nothing From Here, Ever!”

You figure that we’ve not learned a damn thing despite all these gloomy stories, and therefore may be time to embrace some of these truly hardy interlopers as providing a much needed infusion of “extra-fit predacious DNA” into what little is left us by all them feminine hormones.

    Great. Now all we need are Chinese buyers lined up like the Japs for tuna, bidding thousands of dollars per fish, ready to ice them and pop them onto an airplane. Problem solved. You’re welcome. ^o^

    If internet had existed in the 1880s, would Victorian era brook trout fishermen-bloggers be saying this about brown trout? That guy in the picture doesn’t look very happy, but maybe it’s just a matter of context.

    Yes, but it it edible ? With sharp teeth up front, and diminishing fins at the rear, the Snakehead looks like evolution-in-progress. But if you can’t eat it, so much for “Intelligent Design” ! Nothing good ever comes out of Florida.

    You just ruined Mizlan’s day (Dark art Caster Blog). He’s been hunting the Snakehead for years in Malaysia, but never found anything that big.

    I think Steve Z knocked this clean out of the park, but great comments all.
