All the Presidents’ fish: Five new species named after Obama, Clinton, Roosevelt, Carter and Gore
By Becky Crew | November 29, 2012 |


Getting a second term is pretty good, but getting your own fish is arguably pretty good too because Obamafish. Say it out loud, it’s great.

Five new species of colourful, freshwater fish called darters have been discovered in river drainages in eastern North America and named after four Presidents and a Vice. Darters are the smallest members of the perch family, and are named after their ability to zip around, under and into rocks and sediment on the beds of clean, fast-moving waterways.

I'm sure these is some tinfoil hat conspiracy that will be a roadmap from naming fish to taking over the world and enslaving the masses.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Too bad Robert Ludlum died. "The Gore Fish Conspiracy" is a catchy title, and it has great potential for a trashy conspiracy novel with holding power for light summer reading.

"Seeing Daylight Through Obama's Nostrils," a somewhat circuitous and tedious Kramer video tour of the President's alimentary canal including his nasal passages beginning with a push and shove past Barack's anal sphincter and ending in a Universal Studios precipitous waterfall drop out through Obama's nostrils (flared of course)....narrated by Kramer...noted and self-appointed global warming conspiracy theorist, local whack, and Giants football fan. :cheers:

And another local intellectual heavy-weight liberal here ignores my thread where a psychologist claims skeptics are conspiracy believers, but quotes a policy-maker who has called for global government. :cheers: indeed!... :D
