WA fisherman slammed for not using a beer can for scale

A WA fisherman has faced the full backlash of the fisho community after proudly displaying his catch yesterday without using a beer can for scale.

At about midday, the fisho posted a photo to various Facebook groups using a lame fishing ruler to keep the haters at bay. This was a mistake as a witness described,

“What point is he trying to prove? That he’s sober and the rest of the fishing community are pisswrecks? Does he think he’s better than us? We all went in pretty hard, I don’t think he’ll be coming back”

Indeed, the bombardment lasted several hours with nearly every insult under the sun being hurled at the man for failing to stick to the time honoured social custom.

To make matters worse, the emotionally-wounded fisherman decided to correct the mistakes of the past by heading to the bottlo and buying a beer to use in a reuploaded scale.

Sadly, the clueless man picked out a can of mid strength craft beer and not the mandatory can of Emu Export. Another witness told The Times,

“He really got it after that. It’s not that hard, the WA fisherman can only gauge a fish’s size if it’s placed next to a red can. Not some fruityboy can of mid strength piss. I messaged his wife and was about to go down to his kid’s school to tell them in person what a loser their dad was but I sobered up a bit”

While the aggrieved fishing admin did show some restraint it appeared to all be for nothing. Given the man’s own son saw the posts and lost a lot of respect in his dad. He told The Times,

“I told him that our mid-winter trip to Exmouth was cancelled. I’m not going down with his ship. He embarrassed the family and it will take a long time to win back our trust”

His wife has subsequently left him.
