For Your Viewing Pleasure!

Ya'll know I'm not too knowledgeable in the media/entertainment department. I get annoyed with tv and am not in the car too long at a time so I usually don't listen to the radio. But April, over at April Showers, posted a video last week of Tim Hawkins a Christian Comedian and I thought it was hilarious. I sat all alone in my house and laughed and laughed.

So, without further ado, I present for your entertainment:
Tim Hawkins singing "Cletus Take the Reel!"

Cletus Take the Reel Lyrics by Tim Hawkins

I was fishing last Friday on a lake in Mississippi in the humid summer heat
on a boat with my best friend Cletus who was sleeping in the back seat
well the bites were slow and we were running low on chips and Gatorade
it had been a long hard day

felt a tug on the line and I didn't pay attention it was spinning way to fast
before I knew it I was staring at a ten pound shiny bass
when I tried to pull the fish inside I pulled a muscle in my upper thigh
I was so scared I threw my rod up in the air

Cletus take the reel
take it from my hand
cause I can't do it on my own
I'm letting go and I need your help bad
and if you don't my fish is gone
oh Cletus take the reel

oh I'm letting go
and I need your help bad
and if you don't my fish is gone
on this boat I'm on
Cletus take the reel
Oh, take it from me....

Did you notice it talks about a shiny bass and he catches a catfish? That was too funny!

And I think the catfish was a ways from ten pounds ! :) I needed a good laugh by the way - don't be dissing your tech skills - you got a video on your blog. To me, that rates as expert!
