First off, I want to give a shout out to my bro and his wife on having their first child. Welcome to the world Maia. (she was born over a couple months ago...I am just a lazy blogger)
So I was down in Houston a while back and ran into some guys from southern Texas. We got talking and found out that we both like fishing. I told them about the freshwater fish we catch up north and in turn they told me about the fish they catch down south.
My god, the states has some of the weirdest fish on the planet.....almost disturbing.
Here is one fish that is served in all restaurants in Texas, catfish. The proper way to say 'catfish' is to say the 'cat' party really fast, and hold on to the 'fish' part...like this 'catfiiiish'
I am sure if I pulled this thing out of the water, I would throw it back in.
Next up is this beautiful fish called a flounder. I mean really, it has spine-like dorsal find running almost completely around this things. But the thing that gets me is that this fish has both it's eyes on the same side of it's head. Look at the pic, 2 eyes on the same side.....
And last but not least is the alligator gar. Really, how drunk did an alligator and a fish get to actually have sex and conceive this thing ?
Not to be outdone...below is a video clip of one way of catching catfiiish. This technique is called noodling. I spoke with a guy that has done this and I still can't believe it. I still have problems reaching in the bathtub to pull out the toys my boy left behind...
Now this is proper fishing.....this is a pic of me a while back at my buddies stag holding the biggest walleye that I have ever caught.....
Same stag, different fish...I am holding the biggest pike I have ever caught....
For some reason I like this video clip....Tiger mashes a drive, and some dude in the crowd yells 'mashed potatoes'
If that was me driving the ball, the dude would have yelled '2nd shot, ladies tee box !!'
Hell of an advertising campaign by Reebok eh ?
Nothing really to say here except 'Look at the size of this guys neck !!' Honestly, did this guy swallow a pylon ?
The boy came inside the other day with knuckles like this....feel bad for the other kid.
If anybody can track down this rum, get me a couple bottles
Ryders 'double barrel' joke of the day
I was making love to this girl and she started crying. I said, "Are you going to hate yourself in the morning? " She said, "No, I hate myself now. "
A man walks into a bar and orders a beer. He takes his first sip and sets it down. While he is looking around the bar, a monkey swings down and steals the pint of beer from him before he is able to stop the monkey. The man asks the barman who owns the monkey. The barman replies the piano player. The man walks over to the piano player and says "Do you know your monkey stole my beer. " The pianist replies "No, but if you hum it, I'll play it. "
