scary salmon pong
Sounds like a big fish story to me.
(sorry...slinking away...giggling to self)
Sesame bagel, Lox, with a schmear.
More likely the region has had a little old livestock-rustling tradition that goes all the way back, with everyone finding it convenient to blame giant "lake monsters."
But, hey, if brings in the researchers and tourists more power to 'em.
Man, we should try to import one to Fresno and have a big Free Republic salmon cook-out.
Kewl. They're eatable, too.
The people in China could stop eating their fetus soup and start eating Salmon steaks instead.
Man: Hey Lo. Let's steal some livestock
Lo: No way, we;ll get caught when they notice it is missing.
Man: Nah, we'll make up a story about a huge bird.
Lo: A bird that carried off cows?
Man: OK a huge salmon.
Lo: Good answer. Let's go.
Paging Roger Corman. Maybe there are no giant landlocked salmon but we can still get a good "B" movie out of it.
Hmmm, that's a mighty fishy story. I assume this fish has legs that it uses when it walks out of the lake to devour the horses. :o) I don't think horses walk deep enough into the water for a big "monster" to grab it.
---severe case of "me tooness" Our giant cow eating salmon is bigger than your punyass Loch Ness Munster and you can take your Sasquatch and retrain him as a Gerbil.---thus sayeth the Chicoms. And just wait 'til we find the giant Karp---we'll put him in our dinosaur museum. (they actually do have a dinosaur museum complete with animated videos and mechanical working specimens) For whatever reason the Chicoms have great interest in weird, large, critters.
and this one.......
What I want to know is where do I sign up for the fishing expedition?
Your wrong there, friend.
We had an old mare that loved to go decided to go for a swin. Unfortunately we were riding her once on a very hot day when she headed to the deep end of the pond and rolled over spilling us kids into the water. Luckily we knew how to swim at that age.
I need a new keyboard! Coffee everywhere! How many bags of charcoal would you need for that BBQ?
