Poll question: What's your fish wish?
Fish only. No shell fish, that's another thread. What do you like and how do you like it prepared?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

32. Ah, the mountains
I used to love camping in the mountains when I was a kid.

Now we live in Texas and our nearest cool mountains are eight hours away.

I don't know how to clean a fish - that'll have to be your bailiwick.

10. salmon
broiled - crisp skin and browned on the outside, slightly pink in the center. We eat it half the time just plain, but we also do an olive oil/mustard/dill sauce. :9

13. I wish to leave the fish in the water.
http://www.usatoday.com/sports/2005-07-28-peta-protest_...

"Fish are not swimming vegetables. They feel pain just like other animals, like we do," says Robertson, who uses that name professionally but has legally changed her name to GoVeg.com, which links to PETA's Web site. GoVeg.com is on her credit cards and drivers license, and she uses that name away from work as "a really light-hearted way to start a conversation about a very serious issue."

She cites research in the United Kingdom that reported in 2003 that trout had nervous system receptors in their heads and responded to damaging stimuli in ways that showed "pain," not just reflex.

Rose rejects that. He says the "emotional suffering" component of human pain takes place in regions of the brain, the frontal lobes, that don't exist in the brains of fish: "It has to be conscious. ... That consciousness requires a lot more complex brain than a fish has."

PETA also opposes fishing for the reasons that waters are loaded with contaminants and that eating fish is unhealthy. Its targets include commercial fishing and fish farms. It also opposes angling for sport, a pastime that the American Sportfishing Association says generates $116 billion in economic impact annually. In PETA's view, fishing is no sport at all.

15. I think I'm going to get into this type of law.
I think there is an untapped resource in "Animal Pain and Suffering Damages". And God knows all fisherman and hunters would be liable for punitives as well, considering they did it intentionally. Sure it might be hard to convey to a jury the extent of the pain suffered by the Plaintiff, after all, they cannot express emotion or language for that matter. I'll figure it out though, and when I do, I'll be richy rich.

NOTE: This is meant to be satirical. In no way am I taking a shot at PETA. I know better.

On a side note: Her name is LEGALLY GoVeg.com? WTF? Whatever floats your boat I guess.

24. You know, I've heard that in a pinch, you can substitute Kielbasa for Toro
It's really the same thing.

28. I've done it on occasion, and you know, no one's ever noticed
Really makes me wonder if it's worth the expense of Toro, when Kielbasa is so much cheaper.

Just like tapioca can be substituted for caviar.

25.  In winter when the fields are white,

I sing this song for your delight -

In spring, when woods are getting green,
I'll try and tell you what I mean.

In summer, when the days are long,
Perhaps you'll understand the song;

In autumn, when the leaves are brown,
Take pen and ink and write it down.

I sent a message to the fish;
I told them "This is what I wish"

The little fishes of the sea,
They sent an answer back to me,

The little fishes' answer was
We cannot do it, Sir, because ...

I sent to them again to say
It will be better to obey.

The fishes answered with a grin,
'Why, what a temper you are in!'

I told them once, I told them twice;
They would not listen to advice.



I took a kettle large and new,
Fit for the deed I had to do.

My heart went hop, my heart went thump;
I filled the kettle at the pump.

Then someone came to me and said,
The little fishes are in bed.

I said to him, I said it plain,
'Then you must wake them up again'

I said it very loud and clear;
I went and shouted in his ear.

But he was very stiff and proud;
He said, 'You mustn't shout so loud.'

And he was very proud and stiff;
He said, 'I'd go and wake them, if ...'

I took a corkscrew from the shelf;
I went to wake them up myself.

And when I found the dor was locked,
I pulled and pushed and kicked and knocked.

And when I found the door was shut,
I tried to turn the handle, but.......

26. Will you walk a little faster? said a whiting to a snail
"There's a porpoise close behind us, and he's treading on my tail! See how eagerly the lobsters and the turtles all advance: They are waiting on the shingle--will you come and join the dance?"
