2. Should be more like:
Edited on Thu Oct-27-11 01:09 PM by TygrBright
"Teach a man to fish, and you can then sell him lines and hooks and bait at wildly inflated prices, refuse to forgive his fishing lesson tuition debt, and restrict his access to any body of water that might actually have edible fish in it. But you can refuse to feed him on the grounds that he knows how to fish! WIN!"

sourly,
Bright
