What we like
- It shows the world of online social media, online romance and an unusual consequence
- There is doubt as to whether this was actually staged, given the background of the film makers. In itself this would be something to contemplate, if that was the case. Whether it is real or a hoax it goes to prove that it is difficult to know what the truth is when it is edited. Just like most of the online world
To think about
- Vince: They use to take Cod from Alaska all the way to China. They’d keep them in vats in the ship. By the time the Cod fish reached China the flesh was mush and tasteless. So this guy came up with the idea that if you put these Cods in these big vats, put some Catfish in with them and the Catfish will keep the Cod agile. And there are those people who are Catfish in life and they keep you on your toes. They keep you guessing, they keep you thinking, they keep you fresh. And I thank God for the Catfish because we would be drull, boring and dull if we didn’t have someone nipping at our fin.
