If that doesn't work, they will build a giant wooden rabbit to hide inside,

Or you could just hire Lew.

B'lieve Trojan Rabbit's been tried. Slingshot may be more effective.

Carp-apult? Trout-uchet? Bass-ista?

I'd like to see you come up with a better way, subby.

If we build this large wooden badger...

Fano: I'd like to see you come up with a better way, subby.

I usually just shoot them and then have the taxidermist put them in a good pose.

Guys with cameras operating under artificial conditions for a shoot? What sort of reality do we live in?

"here is a slideshow of 8 pictures!"

/nah, just kidding, its a set of four with each repeating

Crappy article and crappy headline. Worthless without good pictures.

/although it did get a click out of me

Not to a Muppet Fan...

It's not the thing you fling but the fling itself.

I saw some dramatic sea hawk stuff yesterday, and all they did was corral some broncos in a New Jersey stadium.

Even though it doesn't hurt the eagles to serve up fish, Harrison wonders about the ethics for the photographers.

Very unlikely you will shoot any naked women without some form of enticement.

Resembles the Squirrel Launcher.

They should just come to Starved Rock and wait below the dam. They will save a ton on fish.

Would a dead fish to the face hurt more than a watermelon?

Pretty sure there's a reason for all those "do not feed the wildlife" signs.  Several reasons, in fact.  $trange that the park ranger forgot about them.

"Harrison worries about the ethics..."

I am so sick of these people. My neighbors will not quit biatching about the "ethics" if my fish launcher (well, not unless I get a good shot in and knock them down, but the fish launcher isn't that accurate).

"It's unethical!"  "It's cruel!"  "It's 2 AM and you're shooting fish through my windows again!"

biatch, biatch, biatch.

You know, if they let me, I could come up with names of persons needing to be flung into the middle of the river.

I might even be willing to pay to use the set-up.  Just for a few practices flings.

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: If that doesn't work, they will build a giant wooden rabbit to hide inside,

Ok, so now that we've got the rabbit built. what do we do?

I'm not the fish flinger, nor the fish flinger's son...
2014-02-03 03:48:45 PM  
Pictures? No?
2014-02-03 03:51:59 PM  
He called it the "fish launcher". Bloody hell give that man a job in branding.

"Excuse me sire, but the fish appear to be revolting."

"Yes, they certainly are.  PULL!"

//good to be the photographer
