LAKE MICHIGAN—Rupert Grump, 69, reported that one particular fish kept swimming around but didn’t take a single bite of the food that was being offered. Instead, the slimy creature seemed to be mocking him. “How rude,” said Grump, as the Bluefish lifted her tail out of the water and bent it into a shape of a middle finger. Grump pleaded, “I’m trying to make Lake Michigan great again!”

“Sadly, I’ve seen this happen before. It’s just like that one time last Friday when some dope kept trying to give me caviar even though I definitely said that I don’t want caviar,” said the unthankful fish.

Upon being asked about what the hell this fish actually wants, the cheeky beggar reported that she wants a lot of stuff, including aquatic healthcare, affordable schools of fish, and amnesty for undocumented immigrant bluefishes.

“I’m doing these freeloaders a favor,” the helpful fisherman continued while posting selfies on Instagram and waiting very patiently for bites on the fishing line. “These floppy idiots deserve to be behind a tall glass wall of an aquarium. Could at least say thank you for the nourishment I’m giving out–it’s #1 in New York, Florida.”

At press time, a different fish–a passer-by Suckermouth Catfish, swam by and swallowed Grump’s substance without question. Grump promptly pulled on the line and then posted another selfie to congratulate himself for catching another sucker.
