Fish and chips

I got a reminder the other day that the fish are alive and well. Needless to say I added this particular individual to my buddy list, and he will be paying for my next Argentinian fillet steak....

Would you believe he had 13% chance of actually winning this when the money went in? I'm not sure, but I think that means I was almost a strong favourite to pull in this pot. Almost, of course, being the operative word!
A plague on all backdoor draws, and a pox on the monkeys that hit them.....
