#254 – Bitten

Growing up in the midwest I didn’t eat much fish. I think McDonald’s filet-o-fish was my most common encounter. When I moved to Boston that all changed. Fish and chips was an actual meal instead of fish sticks and french fries.

    If you give a man a fish, he’ll choke on the bones.

    If you give a woman a fish, she’ll mix it with mayo and slap it on sandwiches to eat for three days. Especially if it is tuna.

    If you give me a fish, I’m gonna barf because I can’t stand the smell of fish.

    If you sell a man a fish, he’ll eat for a day.
    If you teach a man to fish, you’re out of a job.

    i’ve got a pond in my backyard and fish quite a lot. it’s amazing how frequently i pull a smallmouth bass out of the water that has obviously survived an attack by a large pickerel.

    the image in the cartoon is pretty much spot on.

    and while i should probably eat THOSE fish, i don’t. i toss them back and catch one that hasn’t already been half eaten. i don’t want to share a meal with a pickerel.

    Sell a man a fishy fish and he will stop buying fish.
    Teach a man to fish and he will drink beer on a boat.
    Yea, by their smell ye shall know them both.

    *raises hand* I don’t get it. Where/what’s the pun?

      Twilightfairy – he’s subverted an old saying: “Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day; Teach a man to fish and he’ll eat for the rest of his life” (the basic message being that teaching people new skills is the best way to help them). Basically the joke is making fun of the phrasing of the original saying, by pointing out that men and women can both eat fish.
