Stupid List Friday: 5 Things You Should Never Yell at a Legion Fish Fry
It never fails. Every Friday since I’ve started Stupid List Friday, I think, “this is the Friday I will miss because I have nothing.”
And then POW…my parents ask me to go to a Fish Fry at the Legion and I was like hot damn, we got ourselves a blog post. Not only that, they actually help me with it.
What Is a Legion Fish Fry?
Well, friends. I’m glad you’ve asked but now that I’m answering it seems kind of stupid. A fish fry is where they fry fish, which usually occurs around here at the American Legion and during Lent, when Catholics aren’t allowed to eat anything good. 1
The Fish Fry near us however, is not any old kind of fish fry (okay, yes it is kind of). People actually travel to this one from far away places and although the sources of this information are all people related to me, I believe it’s true.
Needless to say, people take these things seriously, so if you’re considering attending such an event, I’d remember these 5 things you should never yell at a legion fish fry.
1. I’m Here Bitches
It can’t be just me that thinks I have to yell this upon entering any kind of event with more than 4 people. As you can see from my photo, there are more than 4 people at the fish fry. These things are usually jam packed, like standing room only. Do not walk in yelling, “I’m here, bitches”. Not the right crowd for that. Also, not the crowd for “Let’s get this party started,” or “Who let the dogs out…”
2. Who Ate All the Bacon?
As I mentioned, the fish fry is always on Fridays and during Lent when Catholics aren’t allowed to eat meat. I’d refrain from asking for bacon, asking where’s the beef, telling people you have meat in the trunk of your car, mentioning sausage and also yelling “hey, how’d this chicken get in my fish!”
I’ve seen the same crowd at Bingo and trust me when I say they don’t play around with the fish fry or Bingo. Even if there isn’t a bingo game going on, yelling out Bingo for no reason at all will likely get you a beat down by a bunch of old people with fish pieces in their dentures. Incidentally, my mom told me not to yell bingo at the fish fry. What can I say. She knows me well.
My dad gave me this one and he’s a veteran in case you want to get itchy about me offending veterans. It’s the American Legion for God’s sake and these people have likely been in a war or are married to or know someone who was in a war. You want to piss some old school veterans off, be a Korean woman and yell North Korea is Best Korea, communist in the house, incoming, I got a grenade or “say hello to my little friend” while making machine gun noises.
5. I Won I Won
Oddly enough, there was also a meat raffle going on. I didn’t even buy a ticket because if you remember the last event I went to, I won damn near everything in the house including the meat raffle. People were mad and I don’t blame them. No one should be that damn lucky, but it just happened to be my time to be Queen of the Legion.
Still, yelling out you won, when you didn’t even buy a ticket is about the same as yelling Bingo when you aren’t playing Bingo. (This one also brought to you by my mom, who told me not to yell this either.)
