Real story in the news, no shiite

Divers Probed for Giving Fish Champagne
Thu Jan 8,12:39 PM ET

WARSAW (Reuters) - Three Polish divers faced a police investigation Thursday for possible illegal fishing and animal abuse after a news photo showed them plying a freshly caught pike with champagne at an outdoor New Year's party.

"They may have committed offences of poaching and maltreating a fish," said Maria Niedziolka of the National Fishing Authority, which notified police of the incident.

The picture in Nowa Trybuna daily showed three frogmen neck-deep in a lake, with one of them tipping a bottle of cheap Russian bubbly into the fish's open mouth.

One of the divers told news agency PAP that they had found the pike half-dead and wanted to "restore it to consciousness by treating it with champagne."

It was not clear whether the fish survived. Police said it would not be needed as evidence in the investigation.


--------And, the Poles are now our allies

Cheers

Carlos "maybe they should have given it Avion" Rivera

That's pretty funny, Carlos. I suppose cutting the fish up and cooking and eating him wouldn't be considered "maltreating a fish."

How are you doing? Long time no hear, and are you warm and dry? We may be in Coronado next month, not sure if I am going to catch any whales and feeding them light beer

Cheers

Doing good, Carlos. Thanks for asking. I am staying warm and dry, but that's much easier here than where you are. Take care.

The fish of 10,000 casts. I have yet to bag a decent one, but I will get me a 40-plus toothy critter one of these days.

Pike are like minnows here...not in size, but in number!

My fishing stats....100% success. Every fishing excursion I've been on, while living 18.5 years on this island, has yielded at least one landed, size'n'weight-worthwhile, badass Pike. Every excursion. And I mean both of them!

Pike is "gädda" (yedda) in Swedish. Come over and catch some!

Of course I know that a whale is not a fish, but this pic and story seem to fit here. The pic could be adapted for the cover of a Taiwanese ABB tribute band's Eat a Beached Whale album. Check out that slide guitarist on "One Whale Out" and "Stand Back"!

TAINAN, Taiwan (Jan. 30) - Folks in Taiwan wish the insides of a whale had stayed there. People covered their noses and business came to a halt after a dead, decomposing whale being transported on a truck burst because of a gas buildup.

The 56-foot long sperm whale was being transported through city streets on the truck after it was found beached during the weekend. It was being hauled to a university, where scientists were going to try to find out how it died.

Right in the middle of traffic, the carcass exploded - splattering its innards across the street. Experts believe the explosion happened probably because of gases building up in the dead mammal's collapsed stomach. [I seen something like this on CSI: Miami.]

Shopkeepers closed up so they could scrub away the malodorous mess of blood, blubber, and entrails [and get them into the kitchens by lunchtime].

Hi, Carlos! I have two quotes from you, from your original post and your latest, then a comment:

I guess the whale got revenge for having its dead carcass paraded thru the streets. It's even sporting an evil grin

Meanwhile, Billy, I ran across an album cover to go with your 1.15 post:

* About once a month, the owners of the Marina del Rey (Calif.) Sportfishing bait shop reap a windfall. According to a January Los Angeles Times story, a Tibetan Buddhist study group drops by in a caravan after meditating on the "liberation of beings" and plunks down $1,000-$2,000 to buy as much live bait as they can, after which they go to Marina del Rey Harbor and, in their terms, free the bait (whereupon, of course, much of it is immediately eaten by fish, anyway).

Peach NuTT, the name "Kilgore Trout" has crossed my mind 20 times the past 2 days, but I still can't think of who he is. I know I could look him up on the net, but that would sorta be cheating. I'm thinking Even Cowgirl Get the Blues, but maybe I'm confusing that with Trout Fishing in America. Any hints you could give us?

Billy, I finished my book on the Pre-Raphaelites, and my next art history book (I keep one or more going most of the time, scattered at various reading sites around the house) is Pieter Bruegel the Elder [no relation], by Wolfgang Stechow. Plate 2 absolutely must be reproduced here (harking back to your January 15 post):
