Yes, I learn something every day at Portfolio Center. Designer/Illustrator Julie was just in Hank's office, and as one thing led to another--we went from talking about Saul Bass to the book Freakonomics to what she thought of someone's suggestion she have a pink portfolio box (much too foul to repeat), and next thing I knew, she was telling me about the sport of noodling, where men stick their arms deep into a mudbank, wiggle their fingers until a giant catfish bites, grab their guts, and pull the fish out. I wasn't buying a word of it. I had the same response I had when a class told me about sugar gliders, which they claimed were little squirrel-like animals that love sweets and fly around the room.
I called bullshit. And just as in that case, turned out I was w-r-o-n-g. These fishermen are obviously trying to earn a Darwin Award.
Anyway, I'm happy to share this wealth of knowledge with you. Use it wisely.
