Line(s) of the Day #Catfish

They used to tank cod from Alaska all the way to China. They’d keep them in vats in the ship. By the time the codfish reached China, the flesh was mush and tasteless. So this guy came up with the idea that if you put these cods in these big vats, put some catfish in with them and the catfish will keep the cod agile. And there are those people who are catfish in life.

The quote by Vince Pearce that gave the title to the documentary film Catfish (2010). Telling of an online romance that revealed some major secrets on one side, the film has since spawned a successful MTV series. Co-hosted by Nev Shulman, who was the star of the film, it is currently on its sixth series.

  1. I’m srill waiting to discover you’re an 80-year-old grandma from Pittsburgh. 😜 I still don’t understand how in this day and time anyone can be fooled too much. I guess there are a lot of gullible people out there.

    There’s actually a couple on WP who chatted online for a year before meeting, they never exchange pictures or videos. They had no clue what the other looked like. Anyway, I guess they fell in love with each other’s souls because when they met, the chemistry still translated. They been together for three years now. He is from Australia, She is from New Jersey They had a long distance relationship, traveling back-and-forth . He recently moved to America . They are engaged to be married very soon. Really lovely pair. It’s the second time around for both of them

    So sometimes you’re the cod, other tines, you’re one of the lucky ones

    On a trivial note, Max is cute!!

  2. Urr…I cut most of my cable tv but I’d be curious to see the TV show. It’s amazing to me to read about this kind of thing and why people behave they way they do but guess it sure keeps life interesting for sure!

    • It’s amazing how much people want to believe in fantasy even when there’s so much proof against it. One thought he had been talking to Katy Perry for seven years. By the end of the show you do get to find out the motives of the catfish too. There’s all kind of motives!
