An Excellent Fishing Story

I was never much for fishing, myself. But any story that begins with this:
I never got the hang of grabbing the fish after you catch it. Not being able to do this makes fishing pretty pointless, and after your grandfathers die there's nobody left to do it for you.
and ends with this:
I started to wonder how the hell I was going to scoop up this very mean fish who almost certainly hated me the way a Hell's Angel does somebody who dents his bike. And in that moment, I suddenly saw the appeal of being drunk.
needs to be read by as many people as possible.

And the best thing is I haven't even given you the best parts. Go read it.
