Gingerbread Man Caught!

Fishing, now there's an exciting sport. Of course, I'm talking exciting for the fish. For the guys in the boat, not so much. I'm convinced the fish are having more fun at this than we are. You put a worm on a hook and throw it in the water and what happens? I'd say about ninety-nine per cent of the time they nibble away and eventually eat all of the worm without even touching the hook. And if you've ever had your worm nibbled, you know what I'm talking about. So clearly it's nothing but a game or a sport to the fish, with the added bonus that they usually get a free meal out of it. Is it any wonder that it's the schmucks with their poles in their hands who have to down about a dozen beers each in order to make this a fun outing? The fish get a bunch of exercise swimming around, they get plenty of mental stimulation figuring out how to steal the bait without getting caught, and it wouldn't surprise me if they keep score among themselves on who gets the most worm during the competition. And of course every once in a while one of them escapes with the worm and the hook, displaying perhaps a lack of skill, but showing a real toughness living for who knows how long with a bloody piece of shrapnel hanging from their cheek. Oh, and getting back to the doofuses in the boat, when they finally do a catch a fish they get so excited for about three minutes, then it's back to sitting, sitting, drinking, sitting, drinking, sitting. Although I guess they do have the thrill of gutting and cleaning the fish to look forward to. Let's hope they've saved some of that beer.
