And why is this little group gathered, and waiting. . . .
And what is this line for? What's in this cooler? Knowing what's in the cooler would probably shed light on this mystery.
Ewwwww!!!! What is that ugly blob? (blob, not bob.)
It's a freakin' butt-ugly catfish! (And you HAD to see it in the larger photo format, of course!) The so-called Cats Incredible (yeah, right.) tournament in Grand Forks, with big buck prizes, and a fine excuse for. . . . ummmm. . . . drinking. . . .
The fisher people. . . (oh, heck. The fisher MEN. Notice the predominance of male fisher-folk with their coolers) bring their ugly, ugly fish to the table to be weighed, measured, and applauded. . .
And after it's official entry into the Books, it's hustled along in a laundry basket (more ewwww!!!!) to the eager hands of waiting, innocent (easily amused) children . . .
. . . and ceremoniously dumped onto a slide. . .
