Your Tax Dollar At Work--Massachusetts Seafood!!

You know who are manlier men than you'll ever be?

Damn straight!

By the way, let's not forget to thank...

Let's begin by checking in with a man who seems not to be doing any actual seafaring right now:

Still manlier were the fishermen of the past!

No creator credits exist for this, but those are pretty obviously Kurt Schaffenberger faces, right? Man, she looks so thrilled by the very concept of manly men making a living from the sea, doesn't she? She so going to marry a fisherman, isn't she?

But we haven't talked enough about fishing yet...

"Greater"?!?!? How could that be possible, sir?

Woo hoo!

Hey, but it's not all science!!

Did you say rewards?

Whoa...$14,000?!?! (OK, cheap shot, it was 1967...)

But in addition to the pay, there's also the advantage of getting to hang with manly men...

...and eat manly food!!

So you'll be giving up those damned ideas about college now, right, Billy?

By the way, did you ever notice that seaside kids are much healthier and more attractive than those damned flyover state kids?

Wait, where's the Filet 'O' Fish?!?

And look...a map!

More thanks to...

I expect all of you to quit your jobs today and go become Massachusetts fisherman!!

I have heard sailing described as standing under a cold shower tearing up hundred dollar bills. I'll pass.

I do love some chowder however.

Perhaps Kid Eternity could be a Massachusetts Man Of The Sea next.

"Do you mean that there aren't as many fish to catch these days... that it's harder now?"

"Nothing of the sort, Marge. Matter of fact, it's just the opposite. There are as many fish in the sea as ever..."

Oh 1967. This why 2017 had to go haring off to find coley, New Zealand hoki, and Alaskan pollack, instead of Newfoundland cod.
