Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
I posted this over at Tweedburg 'cause someone asked, but just to show that BS is not limited to the Mudcat, nay, not limited to cyberspace, but has a genuine 3D existence, and just to push this thread one step closer to the magic 500th post, here are the rules to the annual world famous Mullet Toss at the infamous Floribama Lounge to the best of my feeble memory. Just in case they don't have 'em where you're at, a mullet is a fish.
1) No frozen mullet. They have to be straight out of the official cooler. Nice and floppy and slippery.
2) No gloves.
3) No wiping the slime off of the mullet or dropping it in the sand to improve your grip.
4) The mullet must be tossed from Alabama into Florida. The state line is the foul-line. You may take a running start, but if you step over the state line you're disqualified.
5) You may hold the mullet anyway you want. Most people find that attempting to throw a perfect spiral pass doesn't really work that well. Using one's thumb and index finger to squeeze the mullet in the gill area, taking a running start and flinging it end-over-end seems to be the best strategy, but other techniques have been tried and originality is far from frowned upon.
By the way, Hall of Fame football quarterback Kenny "Snake" Stabler, who lives just a few miles from the Floribama, and has been know to drink a beer or two there, traditionally gets the privilege of tossing the first mullet.
