Not what I expected to find while googling 'dynamite fishing'.

Subby has obviously never gone fishing with grenades.

Yeah. That was the opening scene of Crocodile Dundee II.

I thought the preferred form of fishing with respect to Benghazi was trolling.

Clearly someone hasn't gone fishing with the Mythbusters.

That's a typo.  They were fisting explosives.

The redneck community approves on so many levels.

Dynamite fishing is legal in Libya? Sweet! :-)
 
2013-05-14 03:15:23 PM  
Yea as in they are fishing for reasons not to call it terrorism....

Dude you think that one was bad? As a kid we went on a field trip to the movies and we ended up watching the third one. It was farking horrible and I would've watched anything else besides it,even a bad comedy romance movie.

See, there are some upsides to a lawless state.

//granted, you'll probably be dodging bullets while you're dynamite-fishing
//and seriously, subby, you've never heard of that?
 
2013-05-14 03:19:18 PM  
So now, in addition to being Christ, Obama is the Fisherman?

The Fisher King, mebbe?

I have an interest in the Fisher King because Brantgoose contains Bran which is the name of the Fisher King. Also, the Irish God of the Sea, a sort of Poseidon or Neptune figure. King Bran was a protector of England. In fact, his head is buried at the site of the Tower in London, and if Britain needs him, he will return and save it. Also, if the ravens leave the Tower, England is deep in the dippy-doo.

I love folklore.

You can watch Republicans making it up as they go along.

Benghazi! Benghazi! Benghazi!

Hey, it works for Beetlejuice and Biggie Smalls.

Republicans believe that if you say the name of one of the Five Jew Bankers three times, your credit card will show a mysterious debit for hookers and blow that you will not remember purchasing when your wife or the media finds out about it.

So, the Game Warden's out one Saturday morning, when he hears a massive "kaboom" coming from across the ridge. He walks a ways, and sees an old man in a boat, scooping fish out of the water. Thinking he has an easy bust in hand, he asks the old man for a ride to the other side of the lake.

As they're going, the Warden asks the old boy what he's up to. The redneck says "well, I'm just doing some fishin'." The Game Warden says "it sounds like you're using dynamite. Any individual caught doing that would be guilty of a serious crime, and would be looking at a very heavy fine, and possibly some jail time. I don't care who it is, they'd be in front of a judge before sundown."

The old boy nods and pulls out another stick of dynamite. He lights the fuse, and tosses it to the game warden.

"Son, you gonna talk? Or are you gonna fish?"

Ahhhh. Brings to mind one of Jerry Clowers stories.

2013-05-14 03:23:12 PM  
I remember a kinder, simpler time when you would drive your car into the water before blowing it up.  Maybe I'm crazy, but I think the old ways are the best.  This newfangled business of blowing up fish from long range, I just can't see a future in it.  Mark my words.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish with dynamite and you get rid of him.

of course this "story" comes out today.

it was just a fishing "accident".  Just like the killing of our Ambassador, 3 others and many more wounded was due to a bad score on rottentomatoes.com
