"Takes your mind off of Trump don't it" or some other Orange Man Bad comment.

What are you do here so early?

Ann: Painting my masterpiece.

Hoosier in Tokyo said...

Fisherman: "So, who do you think's going to garner more votes in November?"

Left Bank of the Charles said...

Want some fish?

Wanna ride on my boat honey?

the early bird catches the worm.

as to Meade, i'll just quote Lt. Commander Ivanova's famous line: "I'll be in the car."

Laslo Spatula said...

I'm going with "Do you want to smell my fingers?"

Said in an Old-Timey voice, of course.

I am Laslo.

Red sky at morning; sailor, take warning.

"Wanna ride on my boat honey?"

Works better with "dinghy."

"I'm here to get away from people, lady."

Ken B said...

“Black Lives Matter”

NorthOfTheOneOhOne said...

A little serenade, maybe?

Ann Althouse said...

"Eminently guessable, indeed. "Red sky at morning; sailors take warning.""

You're on the right track, but in person the sky did not look red. It was a gentler pink with orange.

rcocean said...

When sky is pink, Fishing it stinks.

tcrosse said...

"Hey, lady. Wanna buy a fish?"

"Hey Little Lady. Come here often?"

"You're gonna need a bigger boat."

And they lived in an alley under the red sky

It’s going to be a beautiful day

Smooth as glass today.

I’d have guessed “Good morning. Please don’t make noise and scare the fish.”

OK, second guess then: The fisherman said, "Geez, isn't it about time you got a new camera!"

Q. "What did this fisherman say to me?"

A. "Hi, I'm Al Neri. I know a great spot out in the lake. Hop in."

Fandor said...

“Dear one, the World is waiting for the Sunrise...”

NCMoss said...

The fisherman might have quoted Captain Courageous:

There's a place in my heart for the one I love best.
And I still keep her picture tattooed on my chest.

Yea ho, little fish, don't cry, don't cry;
Yea ho, little fish, don't cry, don't cry.

"No thanks. I've already caught my limit."

Haven't looked at other guesses--here's mine:

Hey lady, you ever hear of the Colossus of Rhodes?

Is there a prize?

Fine COVID19 seroprevalence study in hard-hit Geneva finds peak at 10·8%. Also, for every confirmed case, there were ~12 undetected. Epidemic is far from coming to an end by means of fewer susceptible people in population.

Herd immunity is a pipe dream. The best we can hope for is probably an annual vaccine for the population of wealthy countries.

China is already vaccinating members of their armed forces with an experimental one, and has held up the shipment of a trial vaccine to Canada. Somebody should tell Billions Yuan Joe that China actually *is* our enemy, or at a minimum, a serious rival that plays hardball for keeps. Imagine if the news media carried the actual news.

Bob Boyd said...

"Hey, doll, whyncha hop in. If you like trouser trout, I got feeling you could land yourself a lunker this morning."

I am sure that a top investigative reporter from one of the prestige outlets will be all over this story any day.

The passenger in the Jeep that sped through a Black Lives Matter protest, causing one woman to fall off the highway, said they were simply trying to drive to the airport and became jolted after people threw projectiles at the vehicle. Footage of a blue Jeep racing down a Aurora, Colorado highway as Black Lives Matter protesters desperately jumped out of the way made headlines on Sunday as tensions mount nationwide.(Snip) 'Once this white pickup truck did crash into us, a man with a bat then approached the vehicle and began swinging at the vehicle,' he said. 'We then proceeded to speed off

This is impossible after all, as the protestors are peaceably assembled as is their right under the Constitution. So we will need the New York Times to fact check this for us and explain how these people are lying. If only Carlos Slim knew!

Good morning.

Matthew Heintz said...

"Aren't you the woman with all the click bait?"

Tank said...

Fisherman: Wanna get high?

Althouse: Not with you.

Come on down to my boat, baby
Come on down where we can play
Come on down to my boat baby
Come on down, we'll sail away

"Where's your mask, buddy?"

Ann Althouse said...

Answer: Noting that the sky was pink, not red, he said: “I guess I don’t have to take warning.” I found that quite amusing.

Ice Nine said...

Wild goose chase, much?

In re books available on Kindle -
I was reading Barrie Pitt on the WWII North African campaign.
Pitt pulls a lot of quotes from the Australian journalist Alan Moorehead, who seems to have been constantly on the spot with various British units. He was the ubiquitous man between Alexandria and Tunis.

Alan Moorehead was once a ridiculously popular writer, especially his "The Blue Nile" and "The White Nile", about the exploration of Africa; if you want the quick and dirty on Speke and Burton and Stanley and Livingstone, and all sorts of other high adventure, well of course they are on Kindle.

Also his "Gallipoli", which has long been the leading popular history of that mess, with justice, as it is superbly well written. Also on Kindle.

Also on Kindle is his "The Desert War", about, again, the North African campaign. I would call it rather his compiled on the spot reporting (a history of sorts, but not quite). He was an eye-witness to a very great deal of what he wrote about.

Anyway, Moorehead is an unjustifiably forgotten writer and much of his work is easily and cheaply available.

Probably not: "Follow me and I will make you fishers of men."

Char Char Binks, Esq. said...

Did he garner any fish?

“Freedom Fighter” Ammon Bundy in the news again is entertaining and interesting.

That's why I don't take you seriously about not voting for PDT because of some personal conflicts with people you've never met. You know darn well the stakes are too high for that.

Go on and blow off steam as needed, but forgive me if I don't put in the time talking you off the ledge. You know your duty and I'm sure you'll do it.

Caught a statue just last week. Had to throw it back. Endangered species regulations, good god.

More reporting for Althouse to shrug at. Antifa attacking buildings in Athens Greece. Buts it’s crazy to think they'd attack anything in Oregon!

I believe in [fill-in-the-blank], but...

No you don't. No matter what you use to fill the blank.

The "but" is the tell.
