Molesting salmon??? Lock 'em up!! :o)

Salmon is such a vital part of the Alaskan economy (most Natives in the villages are still on a subsistence lifestyle, living on what they can hunt, catch, or harvest) that such things are taking very seriously here.

Oops! My bad, Rev. Paul. Didn't realize my comment was a wee bit flippant. :o(

Rev. Paul said...

Chickenmom, I was quite amused by your comment, and why not? It was funny. I was only explaining why "molesting salmon" is a criminal infraction, up here. :)

It's a criminal infraction elsewhere too. It's just usually lumped in with "crimes against nature".

Rev. Paul said...

Yep, leading to the inevitable "shades of grey" that the courts are forced to wrestle with. Ah, well.

Out for an adventure, get stuck on a roof...happens to me all the time...

Rev. Paul said...

It does make one wonder how they just "happened" to get up there...

I may ask my better half to write down what she hears on the scanner during the day and do a post. I know it will be as funny as what you here too.

Rev. Paul said...

I look forward to your results, Senior. :)
