Noodlin'

My wonderful friend Michael Pacas just sent this video to me and I am stunned, giggly and slightly turned on.

Welcome to a little thing they do down Arkansas way called Noodlin'.

These are fishermen - - for lack of a better word - - who stick their arms into the mouths of huge catfish and then lift the fish out of the water.

Yeah.

The fish bite them, it's bloody and in my opinion, it's just one more reason why The South lost the war.

Check out Anderson Cooper's report on Noodlin'...



In the clip, Anderson says, "That's Noodlin'. I want to go Noodlin'."

Anderson, if you want to stick your hand into a hole... Well, I won't say any more. Just call me.

I'd never stick my hand that far into a fish...

(I'm gonna let that one lie there...discuss among yahselves...)

I think the rest of the country calls it fisting.

Stephen Rader said...

Aaron - A finger, yes, but my whole fist? Well, isn't that uncomfortable?

Michael - The rest of the country calls it fisting. I call it Saturday.

Dana said...

My cousin actually does this. She's made a video and sells it. Only she called it catfish grapplin'. Crap, I really am white trash, ain't I?

Mark in DE said...

I'm sure Anderson Cooper has been noodlin' before, but it wasn't with fish, m'kay???

Mark :-)

I'm actually shocked that they have let this news OUT.

Stephen Rader said...

Mark - I want to be invited to Anderson's next Noodlin' session!

A Twisted Thought - I'm sure those Southerners are proud they made the news on CNN. Remember when CNN actually reported the news?

jer said...

um...i don't know why that came out anonymous...

Stephen Rader said...

jer - Blogger comments have been screwy all day today. But yes, you should be proud of the Noodln'. :)

Weird, very weird. I am impressed with the size of those fish, and enjoyed the size of that first guy's biceps. I wonder, however, about the size of his brain. And that's all the size wonderin' I'm gonna do with this one.

tiffany said...

your last sentence slayed me.
am dead now.

McCool said...

Strange minds think alike...not sure tho if Anderson was wanting to stick his arm IN something.....or chomp down on that beefy muscle-redneck in the video! *grin*

so...the question begs to be asked...if they catch the BIG ones with their arms....what do they use to catch the normal/smaller ones?

*evil grin*

Michael said...

Wait, the rest of the country calls it fisting. Don't you call it "the weekend"?

Stephen Rader said...

Java - Suddenly, I feel like I should sing WHAT'S THE USE OF WONDERIN'! And I too wonder about the size of their brains. However, the size of other things on their bodies, I don't wonder about at all. :)

Tiffany - You're too pretty to slay! I just wanted Anderson to know where he can stick it if he feels like it. And you KNOW he feels like it!

McCool - Oh, I would LOVE to see that video!!! Whippin' it out and having those fish chomp down on their man-poles. Or perhaps they prefer to spear those fish with their man-poles. Either way, it would be ridiculous and sex-inspiring at the same time!

Michael - Not just "the weekend." I call it "anytime I can get it!"

Shirley Heezgay! said...

this is just bizarre.

the expression on Coop's face is priceless and i interpret it as:

"Stephen Rader, would you please noodle me?"

Stephen Rader said...

Shirley Heezgay - Don't tease me. Cause you know nothing would make me happier than for The Coop to Noddle me. All my wildest dreams come true.

dirk.mancuso said...

Fisting, Stephen? I gots me all kinds of questions for you, Mister Man.

(And damn! -- every time I see that pic of you as the Riddler you get more adorable! How is that possible...?)

Stephen Rader said...

Dirk - Bring on the questions, Sir. Hell, bring on anything you like. I can take it. :)

And you think I'm adorable? You're The Adorable Dirk. Nothing quite tops how cute you are.

I'd like to do some noodlin' with Mister Cooper!

Stephen Rader said...

roborange - Noodlin' with Mister Cooper - - that's what I call a weekend!!
