Original post made on Sep 15, 2013

The fish "is larger than her" -- larger than her "what?" [Post removed due to disrespectful comment] Does the use of the verb in its present tense suggest that Moby Fish survived the ordeal? Or at least is still intact? Is it being stuffed? Mmm ... stuffed halibut!

And was she there for the salmon, too, or just for, you know ...

So, cholo -- you're the resident buffoon on the Pleasanton Weekly's forum, right? Branching out are you? I find it difficult to make the anatomical comparison you suggest, but I will defer to your expertise regarding dickishness, in general.

congrats to the fisher"woman". That is a hell of a fish. I am sure the men weren't happy, just like the men weren't happy the first hole-in-one at the Canyon Lakes Golf Course was made by a woman at the 13th hole with a 5 iron....
