(Who's leading in the "comment of week category"---me or Oilcan?)

[Personally I liked the fortune cookie comment more].

I loved the story about the man catching that large catfish with his daughter's Barbie fishing pole.

Eight or so years ago I was at my cousin's farm riding around in his pick up and talking about the good old days. When we came up on his tank and decided to go fishing. There was one problem. When we looked behind the seat of his pick up, the only fishing pole we had was a Bugs Bunny pole that belonged to his 3 year old son. We also didnt have any bait.

Not to be deterred we decided to catch grasshoppers. If you grew up in the country, then you know that it isnt very hard to find grasshoppers in the middle of the summer in Texas. So that is what we did. We caught a milk jug full grasshoppers and started fishing.
It didnt take long to catch a bunch of perch with our little Bugs Bunny fishing rod which had 2 lb test line and a hook smaller than my little finger nail.
Right as we were getting to leave my cork went under and the drag started screaming.

I had a BIG UN'!

Im sure it was a sight to see my 6'6", 245 lb rear end running up and down the side of the tank, screaming louder than the drag (and probably screaming lounder than the little girl who owned the Barbie pole could have) trying to keep that cat that took my cork under from breaking my line.

After about 10 minutes of fighting that rascal I landed him. I have no idea how much he weighed. I know it wasnt in the 21 range but it was still big...maybe in the 8-10 lb range.

LOL...WOW what memories!!! My heart is racing now just thinking about it.

Lance, you actually had two comments that made the medal round this week. You've definitely been putting your foot on the gas and on Oilcan's neck.

Talk about getting served.

I'll have to go back and get the official tally, but an end of the year scoreboard is not out of the question.

I certainly think you're in medal contention and it may very well be for the gold at this point.

Regarding that fish story ...
Look at the size of that fish! He's straining just to hold it.

What most impressed me was the picture with that massive fish and that tiny, pink fishing rod.

That's a fisherman in my book. Anybody could catch such a fish with Big Bertha, but not so much with that one straight from the Barbie's jeep.

I have really got to limit myself to only 3 or 4 windows to follow up on when coming to your blogs on Mondays...

Thanks for sharing... :)

Great list this week! I'm actually still catching up on your list from last week (since I have been preoccupied the past 2 weeks with trying to write a book review on Stephen Mansfield's new book).

I have to admit - the blind, drunk Frenchman driving without a license is almost unbelieveable!

Kelly, normally it's "3 strikes, you're out."

But look a how stacked the deck is against this guy.

He's (1) French, (2) blind, (3), and (4) driving without a license!
