    Dont know what to make of the Tennessee red staters. assault with catfish, and just last week I read that they are growing French black truffles in east Tennessee. First thing you know they'll be driving Jaguars, sipping Chardonnay, and voting for Hillary.

    Cheers, John

          I noticed that the article stated "Henry wasn't hurt, but the $7.99 catfish dinner was ruined". OK, so everyone would have thought that the meal otherwise was edible after being thrown?

            Ed- So long as the fish wasn't'Thrown UP' It would have been considered safe to serve! This is Eastern Tennessee remember!

            I love the way the Las Vegas paper used the descriptor a "Blonde Heavy-Framed Female"... In our space-saver Indiana paper it would have read "A Fat Blonde Woman" !!

              Honestly, it's not the frame, it's the upholstery.

                They'll paint the Jag Vol Orange but voting for Hillary? Second on the "Ain't gonna happen".

                  I suppose it was unrealistic to think it would be unanimous

                    Personally, I'd rather vote for a catfish.

                          Which explains the re-election in 2004.

                            Don't look at me, I didn't vote for him or Kerry. I voted Liberterian. It really sucks that we are forced to choose the lesser of 2 evils.

                            Now then, I had brkfst at Ryans's Saturday morning and they were serving some really good fried catfish. Catfish for brkfst you ask? All I can say is it's Lent.

                              I started St. Patrick's Day off with a big bowl of menudo. Some folks might think catfish to be a better choice.
