Default The fish with disabilities act, coming soon

It seems that all the underwater noise may be making fish deaf. Will we need to install flashing underwater strobesbeneath ourboats to alert them to get out of the way.

I am an equal opportunity fisherman. Most of the fish I catch are are length challenged.

Next time somebody gives me grief over running dry stack exhaust on a go fast, I'll tell them I'm trying to be politically correct and evironmentally aware as opposed to underwater exhaust that will damage the hearing of fish.

A deaf fish probably wouldn't be a bad thing though. When other fish tell him not to take the bait, he won't understand. Maybe they should spend a few billion dollars in teaching fish sign language. Then again, I've had this idea for quite some time about a fishing lure that blasts rap music underwater. Fish would bite the thing just to shut it up!

Oh well, I guess there's good and bad with everything.
