Warning: I am very tired and in a goofy mood, but here goes. A comment on another thread got me thinking about this. WTH is with that trout smack smiley? :trout: :trout: :trout: I cannot honestly say that I have ever had the urge to smack somone with a fish. I am just wondering where it came from? Is there an expression I am not aware of ("well, slap me with a trout!"), or are people using fish as deadly weapons somewhere and I am out of the loop? And what is with the smackee having those black x's on his eyes - is this murder by fish!?!
Anyone care to explain or debate the origin of the great trout smack? Oh, also...what is the appropriate use of the trout smack smiley? Inquiring minds, you know!
