Something Fishy

Getting this excited about fishing must be a guy thing.

Maybe it serves another function like Swiss Army knives. Or maybe fish like to nibble on woodies. Is there a second hook in there?

So very true ... but that lure kind of excites me.

Hey tehre Parlancheq,

I'd like to take this time and congratulation you on your awesome blog and inform you that you are in the running for Bestest Blog of the Year. You are up against 104 other excellent blogs that have all qualified by being "Bestest Blog of the Day" in the past 12 months. Voting starts TODAY (July 23rd) and will end in 2 weeks (August 6th). Winners will be announced on August 7th!

The winner will be receiving (at least) a $50 prize and a ton of new visitors I'm sure. Other blogs that finish in the top 10 will also be getting a few new links and extra exposure. Full details of the contest can be found here. So what can you do to increase your chances of winning?

1. Go vote for yourself (duh!)
2. Encourage others to vote for you. Here is the URL: You can also find a nifty little graphic to include on your blog here.
3. Encourage others to register before voting. Registered users votes count 3 times more than guests.
4. Keep up the great blogging that got you here in the first place. People are going to be stopping by your blog before voting, and if you have some great, new content, that'll surely increase your vote.

Again, congratulations and good luck! And if you're interested in winning another "blog of the day" award and get in the running for next year's award, check out the new "Blankest Blank Blog Directory." Questions? Please feel free to email me or drop by the forum.

I don't like to fish. I don't get excited about it. I am not very good at it...

Bass fishermen, and bass fisherwomen, are probably the most obsessed fisherpeople. They are also the type of fisherhumans most likely to receive lures with boners for Christmas. They drink coffee from bass shaped mugs and they have little rubber bass hanging from their rear-view mirrors. They can often be seen holding their recently caught bass tenderly to their loving bosoms before releasing them back into the wild so that they might meet again someday. They also sometimes dress up as bass while having sex, with fake gills and shiny scales. Their understanding mates “set the hook” and “land them” and then sometimes "clean" and pan fry them. But they never speak of this because you are always supposed to “catch and release,” always!

Hi again,

Just wanted to remind you that today is the last day of voting for Bestest Blog of the Year, and there are definitely still quite a few blogs within striking distance for the fame and glory (and $50 cash prize!).

EXCLUSIVE results will be featured on my new (and improved!) blog,, 8AM EST on Tuesday morning. Voting for new "Best Blog of the Days" has already begun and the first winner (based entirely on your votes) will be picked Wednesday (and every) morning at 8AM (again at Bestest Blog). Get in the running by joining the Blankest Blank Blog Directory...over 100 have already, and we haven't even handed out any awards yet!!

We'll also be having daily results (again based on your nominations and votes) for Funniest Video, Funniest Picture, Funniest Joke, and Most Fun Game every day at 10AM, 12PM, 2PM, and 4PM respectively.

I hope you'll stop by and leave a comment some time, we've got lots of exciting stuff on the horizon!
