Give a Man a Fish

Postby Woodruff on Tue May 14, 2013 5:12 pm

The old adage: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life.

thegreekdog: Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Don't teach a man how to fish and feed yourself; he's a grown man and fishing's not that hard.

Serbia: Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and he'll be drunk in a boat all day.

Creepersweiner: Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Give a fish a man, and he'll eat for weeks.

BBS: Give a man a fish, and you stimulate demand for your product. Teach a man to fish, and you introduce competition to the market.

Also BBS: Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you just lost your best customer, you dumbass, the first one's always free!

Also BBS: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you miss a wonderful business opportunity.

Whenever I read Louis CK aloud, I start to feel that it's his tone that makes things funny, and not usually his content.
