This just in! More ground breaking footage from MFN Head Honcho:
Speaking of naked chicks. I've been getting hundreds of hits lately because of a picture I posted three months ago of NY Yankee outfielder Nick Swisher's scantily clad girlfriend. Funny how that works. Maybe I ought to do a series of pictures of the girlfriends, wives and partners of famous athletes? Actually I like that idea: Okay here we go. Here's a picture of ping pong champion Wang Hao's current girlfriend. I might add this is the first girlfriend that the Chinese National Ping Pong Association has allowed him to have! (seriously, these fascists control every aspect of a ping pong player's life). Her name is Peng Luyang, and guess what she does for a living? That's right! She's the ranking women's world ping pong champion. Evidently she's the only woman on earth the governing body of Chinese table tennis has deemed worthy of the great Wang Hao. All I can say is, poor Wang, he's got a limited field of potential dates. But what I really want to know is: who wields the paddle in this relationship?
Ping pong champ, and girlfriend of the great Wang Hao, Peng Luyang (imagine the spanking this lady could deliver!)
Well well. Third week of January and no clupeid spawns to report (I am using the “c” word here in lieu of the “h” word which has been getting far too much play on this blog lately). Be sure to check in here regularly as my monkeyface operatives are, even now, out in the field sparing no expense to bring me news of any major or, at this point, minor spawning events. With no fish to pursue and conquer, this last week has seen MFN Head Honcho, Lombard Of the Intertidal, in an unchar-acteristic battle against beer and coffee. Decided these two were getting the upper hand and so cut myself off for a week. The happy conclusion of this grim self imposed Ramadan, occurs in approximately 1 hour and 22 minutes when I will pop open a Pilsner Urquel, pour it into a frosty mug and drink it with something akin to rapture… as the rain drops tap the leaves of the eucalyptus trees outside my back window, and the earth, (which is almost as thirsty for a drink as I am) guzzles up the H20. What else… hmmm... not sure what to say. Here’s a few other cool fish (and one arthropod). Good luck with these. I am betting they will prove a tad more challenging than the last ones.
Same stakes. You get close and you get a free MFN #1, with the accompanying CD. Or, go the creative route...
In closing... I ran into this deeply disturbing video of the Norwegian commercial basking shark fishery. Which, thankfully, no longer exists. Second largest fish on earth, the basker--a very lazy and gentle creature. Though disturbing, I thought this was interesting and historical enough to include here. Be advised, if you are thin skinned don't watch it.
Its not really fishing so much as... fish-execution. (The white puff near the end is actually a bullet hitting the shark). Nevertheless, it comes from an interesting Norwegian website which I will now plug:
Okay... guess what? It's time for that first brewski! I'm outa here!
Oh yeah... from right in the middle of a very welcome downpour, this is Lombard Of the Intertidal, signing out.
