Amazing (and True) Friday Fish Story...



The story goes that out on Lake Conroe (50 miles north of Houston ) a local man spotted an orange ball bouncing around the surface in a very odd manner- so he went out to investigate.

Turns out it's a big ole flathead catfish that had apparently tried to swallow an entire basketball- which became stuck in its mouth, poor thing!

The fish was totally exhausted from repeatedly attempting to dive, but only managing to bob up and down due to the air of the ball buoying him to the surface whenever he tried. 

The guy tried numerous times to get the ball out, but it was really jammed in there.. He eventually had to ask his wife to cut ball to deflate it and then released the very hungry catfish.  One of those ones you just got to see to believe... 





Mighty kind of him... after-all, we all bite off 
more than we can chew sometimes!


Gracias Roberto~

That lucky catfish really met a good friend.

Great fish story! That is one lucky fish for the man to have come along and helped the fish to get out of a pickle.

If you want to take a break from the Weiner story, I think you'll enjoy a piece called Mitt Romney Comes to Michigan and Liberals Have a Hissy Fit http://mittromneycentral.com/2011/06/09/mitt-romney-comes-to-michigan-and-liberals-have-a-hissy-fit/ You won't believe some of the stuff in that article.
