It is with great pleasure that I remove the fish from your back (inside joke or maybe not) at any rate pussycat est heureux pour le poisson. As they say in France.
And in other news the annual whale races are to begin today with the first heat set to start at noon in the Puget Sound. Fans without scuba gear are encouraged to arrive early at the Colmen ferry dock if they wish to have even the slightest hope of seeing the mammoth creatures race. It was hoped that NASCAR might sponsor the event but when faced with the impossibility of selling beer to underwater spectators they pulled their sponsorship. It looks like the L pod and the K pod are the favorites this year but you can forget the I pods because they aren't waterproof. Lays potato chips and Pizza Hut had hoped to be sponsors but couldn't come up with a water resistant snack in time. The Whale Racers Association is protesting the sponsorship of Starkist tuna for obvious reasons. Sorry Charlie maybe next year.
