They don't get it either, obviously.

Actually, North Korean anything would probably fit in this thread.

From The Atlantic last summer:

Kim Jong Un's Disneyification of North Korea Is More Creepy Than Cuddly

Image

The New York Times describes the scene in that photo:

North Korean state-run television on Monday showed footage of costumed versions of Tigger, Minnie Mouse and other Disney characters prancing in front of the leader, Kim Jong-un, and an entourage of clapping generals.

The footage also showed Mr. Kim in a black Mao suit watching as Mickey Mouse conducted a group of young women playing violins in skimpy black dresses. At times, scenes from the animated Disney movies "Dumbo" and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" were projected on a multipanel screen behind the entertainers; an article in the state-run press said unnamed foreign songs were on the bill.

I have nothing against hunting but this seems like "moderation in all things" is not this man's guiding principle. This IS a good reason to hate at least one fat rich white guy. As Jed Clampett would say "Pitiful... Just plain pitiful.

Wow. I almost missed the live human sitting there in the middle of all those dead things.

That IS a live one, right? Or did the guy stuff his uncle?

Is that a walrus head on the far left?

Somehow, I just don't get the sporting challenge in shooting a large lump of blubber that spends 22 hours a day lying asleep on the beach.

I mean, how much sport do you think General Zaroff and Ivan would have gotten if Rush Limbaugh's sex-tourism flight to the Dominican Republic had crash-landed on Zaroff's Caribbean isle?

I can imagine that guy regaling his visitors with harrowing tales of bumpy jeep rides and spilled bourbon, and the time his gun jammed and he had to wait almost thirty seconds for the guide to fetch another, while the ferocious rhino munched on a plastic bin of corn 100 yards away.

Well these guys are jigging for Perch. It really is just an excuse to get away from the wife for a few hours. On the other hand were they sitting in a shack staring out at tip ups... have you ever pulled a 35" Northern out of a 7" hole with your bare hands? It's actually pretty awesome.

I'm really more of a boat person. I don't even care if I catch anything, I just like to be on the water. In it's liquid form.

I also "don't get" eating anything caught in a Madison lake.

My fear is that I would get anything eating something caught in a Madison lake. I have to say, too, that growing up around the smell of the lakes in the summer has permanently turned me off several kinds of seaweed, even when prepared by an accomplished Japanese chef. One whiff and all I can see is dead crappie and bluegills tangled in putrefying lakeweed....

WTF?
Here's a tip. Take two coolers with you next time you go fishing. One for the drinks and one cooler half full of ice just for the fish. As they are caught, toss them directly on the ice. Live and kicking. Clean them within a couple of hours after you get home. I'm not as fond of crappie, their texture is too mushy for me. Northern have a distinct flavor, wye-bones and a large lateral line so I don't bother with them anymore.

But if you you enjoy lake perch and bluegills, and follow these instructions, you won't find a fresher better tasting fish in any restaurant. The fish from the Madison chain are fantastic. Beats farm raised, pig shit fed Vietnamese tilapia from your local grocer every time.
