Ok, not really.

This is old news. At least a week now.

For lucky best wash, use walking death fish...

Or something.

taste like chicken

Once in the river, they could wreak havoc on native fish populations -- such as white suckers, largemouth bass, sunfish, bluegills and crappies -- and would be nearly impossible to eradicate, state officials have said.

Crappies? Crappy name..

I hear the General Tso's walking death fish is excellent.

"[The individual] was sorry," Lynch said. "They had no idea what they were doing was harmful. They thought what they were doing was a good thing."

Do these walking death fish haver lasers or something?

Any relation to Muddy Mudskipper?

It's a communist conspiracy...
2002-07-11 05:12:26 PM  
I say we throw all the chinease into prison camps until all the fish leave.....or until the chinease go back to china.
2002-07-11 05:12:48 PM  
Would this be the western-eastcoast? Ha ha, sorry, couldn't resist.
2002-07-11 05:13:23 PM  
I bet they like scrapple!
2002-07-11 05:13:38 PM  
to go a little off the subject, I submitted a link:
http://www.rejectionhotline.com/ that was sent to me in the guise of a text message from a woman I have been interested in. The note was to call her for a lunch date. The site has numbers set up for different cities. If its in your area, I would call just for a good laugh.
2002-07-11 05:15:44 PM  
only God would create such a miricle fish
Take that you Communist Atheist's

ElectroSnizzle: You gotta shoot it in the face.

Word. The little bastards are vicious when cornered, and charge you if ya just wing 'em.

Something in a larger caliber is good.

"Md. resident who no longer wanted 2 fish as pets dumped them in pond more than 2 years ago; Statute of limitations precludes charges"

Statute of Farking Limitations?!?!

An example needs to be made of these idiots. A shiat for brained idiot brought over European Starilings as pets a hundred years ago and now we're up to our necks in their crap. Grey squirels were brought over for the same reason and now people don't even realize the damn things suplanted the much nicer and less rat-like red squirel.

This whole planet going to have one giant homogenous ecosystem chuck full of starlings, fire ants, rats and walking fish in no time at all if BS keeps up.
2002-07-11 05:17:43 PM  
The weird thing is that the original two fish that were released were both males.
2002-07-11 05:18:18 PM  
How does it fry up?

Are these anything like the 'Walking Catfish' that have been in FL for years?

Do they look like this?
2002-07-11 05:19:34 PM  
the first article said they were taking over maryland.
2002-07-11 05:20:38 PM  
Anyone who thinks this is funny needs to consider this:

One of those things bit my dick of last year. It was partially my fault (I shouldn't have been doing what I was doing at the time), but hey...it still hurt like hell.
2002-07-11 05:21:23 PM  
I can't spell off...
2002-07-11 05:21:38 PM  
so they found the baby fish by using prods to deliver stunning electric charges that cause fish to float to the surface. excellent!
2002-07-11 05:22:13 PM  
Eat more Possum: They are actually caught for food in their native lands. Go into China town in AnyMajor City, USA and you'll see them hanging on hooks.
2002-07-11 05:23:08 PM  
Max Load.
Not So weird.

White Suckers...gulp, thats me!
2002-07-11 05:23:54 PM  
We don't have the gray squirrels in Ne, but we have a butt load of red squirrels. However, now I'm starting to see black squirrels. They only seemed to live in one small neighborhood, but I've seen two in the last week in my neighborhood.
I think squirrels are kinda cool anyway. Squirrels have never harmed my family or me.
2002-07-11 05:24:54 PM  
That is terrifying, Ranold.
2002-07-11 05:29:34 PM  
Max Load: At my old house, we had a black walnut tree and assloads of grey squirrels. They were nasty little bastards. They would throw chunks of the walnut skins at us just for walking out the back door. And that stuff smells really bad and stains anything it touches.
2002-07-11 05:29:39 PM  
I'm going to try to catch one of these next time. I wonder what kind of bait to use though? Eggroll and flip flops?
2002-07-11 05:31:07 PM  
Don`t mean to sound like a mean farker, but are ya gonna tell us the story? or leave us hanging? I mean, it might be good to know what kinda things would provoke a fish to do something like that..

GIS: not sure if this is the monster or not...
2002-07-11 05:33:04 PM  
Yeah Glenlivid, where can I get some bait made of you dick of last year? *snicker*
2002-07-11 05:39:02 PM  
Sweet! Walking fish! Dinner comes straight to you! No more paying for fishing boat charters, no more having to pitch in for the jackpot, no more surly boathands - just pull up the 'ol lawn chair (and 308 Winchester with scope) and a cooler full 'o frosties and let them babies hop on into the fryer! HOWDEEE!
2002-07-11 05:41:25 PM  
Do you think all those people with those Darwin plaques on their cars are behind this?
2002-07-11 05:42:51 PM  
*slowly backs away from SgtKarj*
2002-07-11 05:43:43 PM  

At least we don't have bullet ants yet.
2002-07-11 05:45:43 PM  
Hoohoodilly, Is that Pee Wee?
2002-07-11 05:49:26 PM  
Glenlivid, I've seen you post in at least two other threads (not recent) about how a fish bit your dick. Tell the story already!
2002-07-11 05:51:34 PM  
Sorry... I thought you said "mullet ants". Now *that* would be scary.

Never mind.
2002-07-11 05:52:46 PM  
It looks like the picture in that carps mouth is unavailable.
2002-07-11 05:53:47 PM  
The authorities should completely electrify all bodies of water until this crisis is resolved.
