Beware of fishing metaphors:

Anyone who puts down catfish displays an ignorance of good game fish.
To make the point, they should have said "some days, all you catch are
crappy (pronounced "crawpee"). Crappy are the predominant trash fish
in the Silicon Valley area. (Too bony, unlike most writers.) ;-)
