Fuzzy Fishing Memories, by Jack Handey

By Joe Cermele

When it came time to pick a yearbook quote during my senior year of high school, I submitted one from Jack Handey. Handey, many of you may recall, wrote the "Deep Thoughts" and "Fuzzy Memories" bits on Saturday Night Live in the 90s. I turned in "Contemplate world peace, and while you're doing that I'll be over here stealing your stuff." Of course when I got a yearbook in my hand, the bigwigs chopped off the last part of the quote and made my final high school thought "Contemplate world peace." I mention this because out of the blue a classic Jack Handey sketch just popped up on the Net and it's about, of all things, fishing. Enjoy, and have a good weekend.

Classic stuff Joe.

My favorite Deep Thought was "If you ever drop your keys into a river of molten hot lava, don't reach in after them. Because man their gone."

Your school yearbook people are punks for tampering with your quote and making you sound like a sissy. We didn't have senior quotes at my school or mine would have been: "Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand." -Homer J. Simpson

Had a hat just like the kid in the video when I was younger. Stuck all my favorite lures on it and wore it everywhere. It is a wonder I ever met a girl who liked me.
