You try telling that to kids today

Back before the invention of television, we had to make our own entertainment.
Alternative title: Cassius shot a manta just to watch it die.

Watching the expiring throes of a red mullet, was, admittedly, a guilty pleasure; but what can we old-timers say? It was Saturday night prime-time entertainment.

I would still enjoy watching a mullet die, and not just a redhead's.

They sit around watching a fish die when there is Peacock inna basket coming out? This is the decline and fall of the bleedin' empire all right.

Wine ladies had see-through t-shirts, he noted.

If you draw the Romans pulling the limbs off bugs you have to finish the drawing with a microscope, so OF COURSE a mullet.

What? Watching fish die is much more fun than looking at peacocks and topless ladies.

They've gone to a lot of trouble to watch a mullet die. Why did nobody think to just go to a hockey game?

They don't have topless wine ladies at the hockey game - unless it's the playoffs.

So, instead, it's "Die, commie fish, die!!!"

I thought it was dorado (dolphin fish, mahi-mahi, whatever) that they would bring to town to watch die. It is a spectacular show. Florescent yellows and reds, electric blues, it's like a piscine aurora borealis that takes about 15 minutes after the death of the fish. (Sorry fish.)

Did they ever watch a Bouffant bite it or a Duck's Ass die?
