Redneck Security System?

These bitter gun clingers country folk are crafty:

Big Mouth Billy Bass apparently got the best of a would-be burglar in Minnesota.

Authorities in Rochester say the motion-activated singing fish apparently scared off an intruder who tried to break into the Hooked on Fishing bait and tackle shop.

The novelty bass had been hung near the door and would start singing "Take Me to the River" whenever someone entered the shop.

Mine sings "Mack the Knife".

If mine sings, I shoot it.

It's only made that mistake once.

Most people just take the batteries out, YAG.

Back when we lived in the city, we just hung a target from the range in view of the sliding glass doors. Never did have a break-in.

My early warning system lets me know if someone farts a mile away in the middle of the next neighborhood over.
I think I'll have time.

I grew up in Seattle, and not even the most avid fisherman (and we were, mostly) would hand a stuffed fish on the wall.
