The President Caught a Fish

I have trouble understanding what the President was thinking when he told a reporter that the most memorable thing of his last five years was catching a fish. The more I read about the story, the stranger it gets.

On a related note, I just watched a Monty Python skit that is still making me laugh. It's the one where one guy dances around and slaps the other guy with fish. Then the other guys knocks him off a dock by smacking the first guy with a giant fish. The guys are wearing safari outfits and it is officially known as the fish slapping dance. Good skit comedy is really wonderful.

I've been thinking about this for a few minutes and I still don't get it. A fish? Again, is he stupid? Clueless? More of a jerk than we can imagine?

I adore the fish slapping dance. I would pay a lot of money to slap the president with a fish.

Maybe he thought it was a trick question. That seems about his speed.

I'm with you Sophzilla, especially if the fish were a number of days past its, er, prime.
