Not worth my time. I have stopped viewing BBC2.
At least the fish are British, and are  "jolly happy for that",
There are a lot of dolphins that wish they were British, then perhaps the French and Spanish wouldn't slaughter them
Dolphins are not fish.
You go to Florida and they’ll tell you otherwise. A dolphin sandwich is a lunch staple. Of course, a little further study will reveal that the Florida “dolphin” is in fact mahi-mahi, but that’s neither here nor there. A standard inquiry is: “are you sure no tuna was hurt when they caught this dolphin?”

Oopsy - guilty on all counts! Time to appeal to Trump’s Supreme Court.

I caught a tuna bare-handed a while ago. Big fella. Ok, it was already dead and just floating, with bits of octopus in its mouth. Even swimming and dragging it was quite a workout for me. I was the only person crazy enough to eat it.

Was it, by any chance, the kind of octopus that harbors the very slow acting neurotoxin?

Aaaah. How slow is slow?

I think the octopus was being used as bait. Surely no one would use a poisonous octopus as bait. Would they?

It could have been a Trump quote: “no more fucking lockdowns – let the bodies pile high in their thousands”
Of course, to make sense in that context, it would be hundreds of thousands.

We can imagine the growls of delight for someone around here:

NY A.G.'s office opens criminal probe of Trump Organization - Bloomberg May 19

Caught a Trump King Salmon!

Bears will "huff" at you too.  If a really large bear turns to face you and starts weaving and huffing, do not make eye contact, back away slowly. Do NOT run. 
Alternatively, if you are very brave or like big risk, you can try to go large yourself - make noise, raise your arms, thrash around. 
Take a chance - maybe it will work!
The bear is deciding.... ; )

Haha! sashimi is good, but I actually was talking about real bears that are deciding whether to charge or not. Have been reading up on this sort of thing because black bears are fairly common where I’m going. (Not grizzlies though.) It’s nice there - hitting the 4000s. No internet for days, just a camera and a notebook. Enjoy the rest of May!

So, with a special grand jury convened by the Manhattan DA, the likelihood of a criminal indictment of the miscreant is ramping up. These things still take an awful long time though. He might well die a more or less natural death before being done with the appeals of his judgment.

Could be amusing if Deutsche Bank actually testifies for Trump. After all, the more Trump/Trump organization is fined, or loses licenses or whatever, the less money to pay them back. Also, has a fishy political smell to it (see photo above)  :D

So he is now predicting that he will be reinstated by August. Whether installed by a military coup, as called for by retired general Michael Flynn at a QAnon conference this weekend, or by Putin directly, it’s a disturbing thought. Supported eagerly by tens of millions of American idiots.
