It's the gift to give that someone who's imposable to buy for.

Would it go good with the 25 pounds of cheese I was just given?

Only a dumb bass would take them up on that offer.

/Or maybe someone who'd do it just for the halibut.

Get some dynamite and explode the whole pile of carp.

Nobody's likely to take that much carp from anyone.

Build a tent city, teach the unemployed and homeless to fish.

They may not like the taste at first, but give them 3-4 days, and they will not only eat the fish, but they will eat the poles, lines, bait, even dirt if they haven't learned to fish by the 5th day.

Given that my dad just killed his second pond-full of Koi by "accident" (current scapegoat is the local bald eagles and hawks), I say ship the carp to people's homes and convince them that they're "decorative".

Or eat them. If people can eat possums, they can find a recipe for carp.

Hey, who's up for some Carp Tacos? or maybe Medieval Sweet and Sour Carp?

And best of all, carp is kosher! (pops like a baked carp's eyeball)

A carp is both a fish and a term for complaining. They're mocking you with wordplay!

This yet another time where suggesting that a critter which has been eaten for centuries but become a pest be used to feed the poor will result in all sorts of negative comments. So I think 'human consumption' as mentioned in TFA can be scratched off the list.

Only in america can geese, deer, carp, and other food animals that have grown to pest level populations not be good enough to feed people that would supposedly starve without aid from someone else.

A really big pile of dead carp would be kind of cool. Maybe they could make a new burning man style festival out of it. Burning carp pile or something like that.

Cat food.

Carp, suckers, who cares? They're both trash fish.
