Give a man a fish...

GIVE A  MAN A FISH  AND
  FEED  HIM FOR A DAY


Give him a fishing lesson and 
HE’LL SIT IN A  BOAT
DRINKING BEER  EVERY WEEKEND

  1. It's funny. I wrote this line for our website www.CoastalBoating.net many years ago because I needed something to jazz up the recipes page. It's a twist on an ancient proverb. I attributed it to Alex as a quote just to make it more interesting. I never expected it to go viral. It is now all over the internet, often attributed to Alex. It was even on a restaurant street sign in Annapolis, Maryland! Imagine our surprise when we saw it. Alas, no royalties have been forthcoming and there are many slightly altered versions out there these days. But it certainly taught us a lesson about the internet.
