Thread: New fish from Arkansas

  1. #1

    New fish from Arkansas

    I really like teasing my friends that live just south of my place in Missouri. This place is called Arkansas! Southern Missouri and North Arkansas share many things -- mud between our toes because we do not like to wear shoes, The wonderful Ozark mountains, nasal twang when speaking, similar likes in music etc. Some of you may know that the University of Arkansas mascot is the Razorback hog! Some of my friends at the University of Missouri working in the genetics labs have developed a new strain of fish that they called a HOGfish which was accidentally released in the White River in AR. I think that this will replace the now mascot for Arkansas Razorbacks. photo below.

    Remember the tea kettle - it is always up to its neck in hot water, yet it
    still sings!

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Seems like a load of carp to me.

    Great "photo", though.

    If it tastes like bacon it will either be endangered in short order or fish farmed......

    Love it!
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    I'd be more worried living near there that it's in the water and what could come of it .......
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
