video from current.com Catfish grabblin, also known as 'noodling', is a type of fishing practiced primarily by southern badasses. It involves wading through red-watered lakes, blindly sticking your hand in murky holes and feeling around for a 50 lb catfish to wrestle into submission (and later dinner.) I first found out about grabblin from Okie Noodling , a 2001 documentary with a soundtrack by the Flaming Lips. Girls Gone Grabbling is the lady's answer to ... Read More
Here's a real gem thanks to the Onion : ''Renowned Hoo-Ha Doctor Wins Nobel Prize For Medical Advancements Down There.'' The article is hilarious.
