Just 'cause I grew up in the mountains, you can't fool me.

Fresh Air said...

Moray eel?

Or could it be Hillary without her makeup?

It's a toss-up.

Syl said...

Well, silly, it's in the url. :)

Looks like a piranya to me.

Buddy Larsen said...

Yeh, a Pirhana. Piranha. Phirana. Oh, I get it--it can't be speled!

Rick Ballard said...

That's really very unkind to Mrs. Clinton. She's of an age where shots of her before she applies makeup should be barred. She'll probably issue an edict to that effect if she prevails.

Heh, I just saw something that said these are mild, white fish. Y'all can use the recipe I posted some time back for tilapia (or any other mild, white fish).

I bet they're easy to catch...

A man in the corner approached me for a match.
I knew right away he was not ordinary.
He said, "Are you lookin' for somethin' easy to catch?"
I said, "I got no money."
He said, "That ain't necessary."

Fresh Air said...

Knuckle--

They're really easy to catch. Just put your finger in the water. It helps if you've got a paper cut.

Do not--do NOT--read skook's link. Yes we need to know these things, but not now, please, lord, not nooooow....

Buddy:

The Indians have a home remedy. There are two fruits high in citric acid that turn the little bugger into ceviche - namely, the citric acid dissolves its bones - and it works itself out.

Eventually.

Buddy Larsen said...

Ahh, jeez--that's a relief. I guess the whole thing is no worse than those long worms (somewhere in the African wetlands) that eventually pop out of the skin. But, like the greenies say, it's all so natural.
