Your Average Bass Fishing Fan

Anything that brings up both curling and fishing is golden in our book, so this post from Something Awful tickled our fancy.

The point of the post is a comparison between your average curling fan and your average bass fishing fan. Your curling fan, the argument goes, is almost certainly a curler themselves; "if you're excited about curling, you are probably in the running for the Olympic team."

But as they put it, your average television bass fishing fan is something decidedly different: "I want you to think about the kind of person who sits on the couch and watches bass fishing on TV. If your brain is being honest with you then you just pictured a sub-literate mongoloid on Social Security for disability. He has a terminal illness and he is trying to stretch every remaining moment of his simple-minded life out as long as possible."

Ooof.
