Overalls, bare feet, outhouse. Do you hear the banjos yet?. I'm exaggerating a little.my grandad was educated and retired out of the navy as a meteorologist had a good job but he was still country. He loved to fish. One day while at the creek he found a small bass about 5 or 6 inches long do he caught it with a net and took it home with him. He tossed it in my grandmothers aquarium and didn't tell her. She woke up the next day to find only one fat little fish in her aquarium.
Nice, I like it.

You take the minnow and tie a string to him and catch a large mouthed bass. Lol that's so wrong.

While visiting my LFS I heard this convo;

Female: Wow it's busy in here today, everyone got a tank for Christmas.

Male: Looks that way.

Female: Well having fish is easier than having a cat or a dog.

(I've started laughing now)

Male: You can tell you don't do anything with the fish.

Ha! It isn't necessary to take care of the air a dog breathes. A fish depends on it's owner for literally everything!

But at least the fish don't try to steal my blanket and pillows lol and the fish don't get stinky when wet.
