Man attempts to trade fake weed for young boy's fish


[Read the post]


Good to know they’re teaching kids the right things in Canadian schools these days.


It’s only February and we’ve already got the asshole of the year.


The outcome of this story was far less heinous than I would have imagined from the setup.


Seems like there should be more to this story than what the CBC is telling us.


Personally relieved to discover “sell a man a fish” was not a euphemism.


Why was the man trying to buy the boy’s fish?


Give a man a fish, he eats for a day.
Teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime.
Teach a man to trade fake weed for fish, he is outsmarted by a young boy, throws a temper tantrum and ends up in jail.

I always thought that adage seemed narratively unresolved.


Oh no we don’t. Trust me on this.


The free market works!


That’s way too premature. Have you forgotten that this is an election year in the US? The possibilities are greater than one can imagine.


Sadly, I suspect you’re right.


Do you know that Donald Trump is campaigning for President in the Republican primaries?


Was it a tropical fish? Maybe this was all just a misunderstanding about what was meant by “trading for reefer.”


Late stage capitalism.


I have so many questions that I am incapable of articulating them.
