This post is dedicated to my dad, Mr. Dennis Johnson, fisherman extraordinaire.
I took Ye Wee Seabass to Dr. Awesome this week to figure out why his angry red bum rash isn’t retreating. As per protocol, the nurse weighed him and discovered that Ye Wee Seabass is actually not-so-wee. At less than 9 months of age, he weighs 26 pounds.
This news inspired the following:
- A Google search for what a real 26-lb sea bass looks like. I found a shot of this man (his name is John, apparently) holding his freshly-caught 26-lb sea bass in his right hand. Disgustingly, this photo was found on a fish story site by the name of BloodyDecks.com. Ew.
- The discovery of a type of sea bass called the Goliath Grouper Sea Bass. If you have the patience to withstand the EXTREME DRAMA of the following clip of a big game fisherman catching a Goliath Grouper Sea Bass, you will not be sorry. I promise. The music alone is worth it. Oh, but be warned that it might make you want to wretch.
- The revisiting of a clip from the movie Airplane!
‘Nuff said. Happy Friday.
