News Release: Dateline, Fukushima Japan

August 15th, 2013

Tepco, the Japanese company responsible for the disaster cleanup at their nuclear reactor site said today that there is absolutely no radioactive water leaking into the sea, and reports to the contrary are false.

"No adverse effects are possible to any sea life in the affected area, and reports of mutated sea life are false, trust us. Would we lie"?

Thanks CR4..... Now I need to stop drinking while fishing. For the life of me, I can't remember taking my wife on this fishing trip, but clear as day, there she is.... sunning herself on the rail... Damn, no more beer and fishing. Think I'll just give up fishing.

"In other news today... a new and wonderous type of sushi was caught near the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant today. Apparently Japanese sushi lovers are looking forward to tasting the morsel.'

"Meanwhile... Japanese power company officials say there is no truth to stories about genetic mutation in sea life near the damaged power plant."

I went into a bar and asked for two shots and a splash of water,

While I was sitting there enjoying by libations I notice the bartender looking at me with a totally disgusted look on his face,

I thought what the hell, so i asked him what the problem was,

He said I smelled odd and asked me if I also wanted a shower,

I said no thanks, I'll wash ashore. Baaarrrooom, chee!

I'm here all season!
