Jesus, was that a news article or the latest Shades of Grey book?

I hope Scott is the bottom and there's no lube.

We've lived in Texas for 7 years. My 10 yr old son has begun to say "All y'all" in conversation.

Read that as fisting, not fishing.

Y'all is an interesting word in that adding an apostrophe + S makes it singular.

On Monday, the two Ricks enjoyed some male bonding as they took their competition to the high seas aboard Relentless, a 65-foot charter fishing boat.

Was this too much to ask for?

Who cares? These two are morons and I've lived in both their states (Florida right now) and this matters somewhere between not at all and less than jack squat in the grand scheme of things. Stubby has earned his own "Dumbass" tag for submitting this.

Sometimes I can't believe the garbage that gets the green...

It's like one of those Extra segments about celebrities engaging in some sort of banal activity as a way to plug a movie. Except I'm not sure what they're plugging here.

Maybe Rick Scott will pull off his hat to reveal a lush head of thick, lustrous hair that he grew by using Rick Perry's Miracle Hair Tonic.

And the iPad earns its own dumbass tag for auto correcting "subby" all the time.

I felt 'stubby' was a apt description for the submitter.

"Perry's snapper seemed to get bigger and bigger..."
Sounds like the boys had fun, I wonder how many guns they brought.

Me too... Both mentions in the headline of fish came across as 'fist' to me. I guarantee you it would have made a much more entertaining story...

That goes right along perfectly;y with the mis-read of 'fisting' for fishing in the article... Some great fan fiction here, something along the lines of 'As Brown fisted Perry his snapper got bigger and bigger...'

See? Even though it is a ridiculous green, we can make the board more interesting if we give the ol' bootstrappy American effort.

Reminds me of some of the "exciting" conversations I heard when I existed down in retard-land ( floriduh ). I did manage to make contact with a pretty intelligent artist crowd down there but most of them were transplants from up north. A few were locals. Very few.

FTFA:

Correction: The red snapper caught at sea was not brought to land and eaten, the governor's office said Tuesday. It was released. An earlier version of this story was incorrect.

Oh, FFS, REALLY? Eat the farking thing already. I can guarantee you that continually getting hooked, almost suffocating, and then being thrown back in the water is NOT "more humane" than actually eating the fish you catch.

Subby gets points.

Correct usage of the plural of Ya'll. Ya'll is singular. All ya'll is plural.

Well done, subs

They're plugging a) their jobs record and b) trying to establish Scott as a good ol boy. He's taking a lot of heat, including from his own party, and needs to start thinking about his image for reelection.

Just break out a ruler and end the suspense, boyz.

He needs some damage control after he and his friends busted up Wyatt's house and then totally pussed out when Gary pulled that squirt gun.

Not to mention that when you take a fish up from a significant depth their air bladder expands with the pressure change and unless you puncture the air bladder chances are the fish will just float on the surface and die after release.

One question I have is whether red snapper are in season? I also thought I remembered them having a temporary moratorium on red snapper. He may have had to throw it back. Hopefully he or more likely his handler did it properly.

If I'm saying "ya'll" I don't care if I'm using the correct pluralization. It's just that kind of a word.

Another word I love is "yonder". If a Texan tells another that something is "over yonder" they know exactly where you mean. It's like a psychic phenomenon, of course YMMV. If someone hasn't a clue, or gets pissed, they are definitely a transplant.

Sure, it's adorably backward, but it's not as ugly sounding as "yous guys" ect.
