I've place an order for 3 55-galon drums of tartar sauce.

Where will we get enough chips?

Should I make hush puppies to go with that, Chris?

Saint Peter: "Your species?"

Fish: "Sturgeon"

Saint Peter: "Name?"

Fish: "Theodore"

Saint Peter: "Cause of death?"

Fish: "Fire"

Saint Peter: "Cooked?"

Fish: "Nah. I was in a barn and it caught fire."

Saint Peter: "Is this one of Jesus' practical jokes again?"

Geez, and it's not even Fryday!

AD - absolutely.

"...moved the fish to the barn "
I may be wrong, but taking the fish out of water and moving them to the barn would have killed them anyway. Don't fish, even ones with MD's need to stay in water? Where does this guy get his info-Dave Barry's blog?

The story is just so incongruous on all levels. Why did they move fish into a barn because it was cold outside? Fish don't GET cold!

Mmmmm...hush puppies. Make lots, AD!

Mmmmmm... smoked sturgeon. I mean, how awfully tragic. When's the buffet, I mean the viewing?

WTFFISHBBQ???

and a *fishsnork* @ Hammie!

igloo, I had the same thought.

I mean, I spend a lot of time in barns and I can't figure out how you'd keep fish in one.
You can't even get a halter and a lead rope on one.

Reminds me of that Far Side comic where the fish bowl is on fire and the gold fish family is standing on the table and one says "Of course, now we're equally screwed."

Like a sturgeon...Ooo!
Smoked for the very first time.
Like a stu uh uh ur geon....
When your skin crisps..next to mine.

malt vinegar snork @ Madonna

*Swims in to remind folks that young fish are called "fry"*

Gracias, Chris. You've been good today... you'll get more spankings from me soon!

*SMACKS CJ with a smoked sturgeon*

SNORKS TO ALL!

Or spankings if you prefer!

I thought the headline might have had something to do with this football game.

Yowsa, wrong. Booty tossing Trojans Tramping Beaver. Yikes! Someone better bring the ferret over from the other thread. Looks like we're gonna need it.

Big *snork* at that headline.

I was wrong, did you get that from Gene Weingarten's Washington Post chatblog? Saw it there this morning.

Go, Fish!

Darth Curt, excellent Gary Larson reference.

*smacks Hammie for 'Theodore Sturgeon'*

Chris - didja need some chips with that snork?

Betting the insurance policy was not in the same barn.

You are correct JEC666. May have been a case of where the insurance wire rubbed against the Mortgage wire.

If I recall "Black Beauty" correctly, aren't you supposed to tie bandanas over their eyes and lead them out of the barn during fires? cuz otherwise they panic and stampede, and might fin the slats right outta their stalls.

oh, the fishmanity!

We visit this place at least once a year because the sturgeon are part of "Ohio's Only Fish Petting Zoo" which was in said barn. The front end of the barn had all sorts of fish for "petting", several types of amphibians and a display of water snakes. I'm *really* sad that I don't have to go for my yearly fish petting expedition anymore.
