Time And Tide Bait For No Man

Hook, Line And Sinker

A Chinese farmer dug a 50-foot hole inside his house to go fishing. The man hired 30 villagers, who took six months to dig the hole- because he wanted to reach an underground river which he suspected was full of fish.

FOOTNOTE: Gone fishing.

the question now is did he catch anything. to some i imagine this would be heaven. not even having to get out of bed to fish.

I can think of nothing more awful than to have a river running under the house!

Where do you find these tidbits? Seems I never come here that I don't read a head-scratcher.

But like Brian, I'm wondering if he ever caught anything. More to the point, if you're fishing from your living room is it considered poaching?

So many questions... not the least of which is "Why?..."

Did it work? Did they catch fish? Why inside the house, and say not just outside the back door? So many questions.

Oh my gosh! He could have traveled to a good fishin' hole long before that was done. I hope he has a very long fishing line and gripping hooks to catch the big one!

Sounds a bit fishy to me, where did you dig this up? (Wink)
